Toronto International Film Festival Kicks Off

Lots of Film Fest news for you. TIFF is in full swing and the city has come alive with parties, celebrity sightings and films. As Colin Geddes says in his blog about the premiere of Dario Argento's Mother of Tears:

The night kicked off with a launch party for the film where basically everyone you'd ever want to meet showed up. Naturally, Dario and Asia Argento stole the night away, but that only scratches the surface. Also on hand to revel in the rapturous gore that was Mother of Tears were Land of the Dead director George A. Romero and a surprise appearance by Shaun of the Dead director Edgar Wright.

Damn, wish I was there. But I won't be missing Romero on Saturday so check back here for reviews of that and other films. Head over to for schedules and info.
