An all-star panel of Canadian directors gathered at University College on January 26, 2013 to discuss representations of Toronto in film. Showing clips from their own movies, acclaimed filmmakers Shane Belcourt, Atom Egoyan, Don McKellar, Ruba Nadda , Sarah Polley, and Clement Virgo explored the myriad cinematic portrayals of Canada’s largest city—from the unconventional to the stereotypical, the parochial to the sensual. Cameron Bailey, Artistic Director of the Toronto International Film Festival, moderated the event entitled Toronto: City On Screen. (Text by Yvonne Palkowski; all photos by Christopher Dew)
