The Loss Of Innocence At TIFF

user
  Yesterday was September 11th, and again I find myself in the city of Toronto, as I did in 2001......when the planes crashed, the towers fell, the buildings burned and America lost its innocence. It was a very strange place to be back then, in the midst of covering a film festival, while one's city was in chaos. For those of us from New York, there was a shared concern about the loss of loved ones, the security of our friends and family and the frustrations of not being able to place p...

In the past year, our country increased its national debt by $1.9 trillion, including $245 billion in bailout funds as part of a greater effort to create change. Conversely, Cinequest, a company that has stayed in the black since inception, spent less than $2 million to create change by empowering the artistic revolutionaries of our time: the Mavericks, those who astound, electrify, inspire, laugh, pioneer—and in turn create rippling effects throughout the world. The 20th Anniversary Cinequest...
