We don’t really need to tell you that one of the biggest film festivals in the world is happening in Toronto this month, do we? You know; the festival that screens over 300 films from over 60 countries every September? We didn’t think so!
If you are out and about during the festival don’t be surprised if you bump into a celebrity: With literally hundreds of filmmakers and actors in attendance, it would be hard not to see at least a few familiar faces! Here’s just a small list of people in town for TIFF’s 37th year: Rachel McAdams, Hugh Laurie, Kate Hudson, Kiefer Sutherland, Collin Farrell, Jennifer Lawrence, Robert DiNiro, Pierce Brosnan and Christina Hendricks!
