Toronto International Film Festival 2012 to focus on Mumbai for its 'City to City' programme

Saturday, March 17, 2012 11:25:42 AM (IST) | Rajesh Kumar Singh, Bollywood Trade Editorial

Cameron Bailey, Artistic Director of the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF), announced on the final day of FICCI Frames 2012 that the 37th TIFF’s City to City programme for this year will focus on Mumbai.
“Past editions of City to City explored how filmmakers represented their urban landscape. This year we'll shift the scope of the programme to showcase filmmakers living and working in Mumbai, regardless of where their films are set,' said Bailey.
According to him, there has been an exciting evolution recently that has seen local independent films emerge to contrast with Bollywood's dazzling commercial movies. “Whether you call it Mumbai or Bombay, this city is a massive player in the global film world, and a place I've grown to love in all its diversity. Toronto audiences are in for a thrill this September,” thus thinks Bailey who has a deep understanding of different genres of Indian cinema and has played a key role in introducing it to North American audiences beyond the Indian diaspora.  
This is the fourth year for the City to City series; cities featured in past programmes include Tel Aviv, Istanbul and Buenos Aires. The announcement of the City to City lineup will be made in August. The 37th TIFF runs from September 6 to 16, 2012.
