2010 Toronto Festival review
The 35th Toronto International Film Festival welcomed a prestigious French delegation from September 9 through 19 this year.
Big names including Catherine Deneuve, Marion Cotillard, Kristin Scott Thomas, Vincent Cassel, Romain Duris, Guillaume Canet, Ludivine Sagnier, François Ozon, Benoit Jacquot, Éric Lartigau, Romain Gavras, Catherine Breillat, Pierre Bergé, and Pierre Thoretton participated in public screenings and a Unifrance-hosted cocktail party for 300 guests, which brought together American and Canadian distributors, French sales agents, and international film buyers.
Three French films were presented in gala screenings at the Roy Thompson Hall (1,500 seats): Little White Lies, Potiche, and Sarah's Key.
The other French films selected at the event were showcased in the parallel sections, including Special Presentations, Masters, Real to Reel, Contemporary World Cinema, Vanguard, and Midnight Madness, which featured an electrifying premiere of Red Nights.
This year's Toronto festival was highly successful, offering a great diversity of films screened in the presence of French artists.
