New TIFF Director Coming Soon

“A new co-director of the Toronto International Film Festival should be named by the first week of December and functioning in his or her new job a month later if the hiring process goes as planned, festival organizers said yesterday… Traditionally, the TIFF has promoted from within its own ranks. But this time it may go outside as the festival prepares to move, in 2006, into a dedicated, five-storey, multimillion-dollar facility in downtown Toronto and to position itself more firmly as the planet’s most important film fete.”
