The Toronto Film Festival is the place to be this year. Both George Clooney and Madonna are premiering their films, The Ides of March (a film co-written, directed & starring Clooney, about an presidential candidate’s staff member who gets a crash course on dirty politics while on the campaign trail) and W.E. (a film co-written and directed by Madonna about the love affair of King Edward VIII and American divorcee Wallis Simpson)
U2 will also be at the festival. They won’t be staging a concert, rather, a documentary about them, From The Sky Down, directed by Oscar winner David Guggenheim will be opening the festival.
The Torronto Film Festival runs from 8 – 18 September. For more information about the festival visit http://www.tiff.net/THEFESTIVAL
