TIFF includes 39 British films this year*
The Toronto International Film Festival starts today and runs until September 18. As usual, there’s tons of great British talent on show and we’re proud to represent.
We checked out the British Council’s website and they have a brilliant section dedicated to this year’s festival and the 39 British films on show. The Huffington Post Canada has some information too.
So keep an eye out around Toronto for the next 11 days and let us know if you spot any celeb Brits in town.

The Toronto International Film Festival will be upon us soon, and it’s a great time to showcase the city and possibly bump into Kiefer Sutherland at your local pub.
If that wasn’t exciting enough, there’s some cool Brit films on offer that you may want to catch too.
“For its 40th year, TIFF has added even more British features to bolster its already solid lineup of UK-hailing films including ‘High-Rise’ and Oscar contender ‘The Danish Girl’ — to name just a few of the most hotly awaited Brit titles.
“This year’s City to City strand highlights eight films from England’s capital to expose the region’s emerging artists. Past programs have featured Tel Aviv, Istanbul, Mumbai and Seoul.
“Selections include a lot of coming-of-age and music stories, including stage-to-screen ‘London Road,’ director Rufus Norris’ followup to his abrasive 2012 suburban drama ‘Broken,’ which premiered in Cannes. ‘Northern Soul,’ the film debut of acclaimed English photographer Elaine Constantine, also finally makes its way to North America.”
So get out and support the Brits!
