Although a number of these films played at TIFF this year, the Top Ten list is also a festival unto itself, which offers an opportunity to catch some of films one might have missed in September or that will ultimately prove difficult to find in theatrical release. Running for 10 days from January 3rd to 12th, Canada's Top Ten will feature screenings of the listed films as well as Q&A sessions with the filmmakers. Jake Gyllenhaal will be on hand to discuss his recent work with Villeneuve, and Jon Greyson will close out the festival in conversation with TIFF Artistic Director Cameron Bailey.
So much so, in fact, that the city decided that the level railway crossing at Dufferin and Queen was no longer viable based on traffic delays and overall safety. The construction of the Queen Street Subway - often referred to as the Dufferin overpass - resulted in a 100+ year jog in which drivers and cyclists had to divert to Gladstone before returning to the street north or south of the rail bridge. While the overpass still remains, the jog was (thankfully) eliminated a few years ago.
