Toronto's Film Scene Burns Up in 2007

This Year in Toronto Film


A lot of people were excited when the loonie passed the US dollar in value earlier this year. Me, I was a bit upset: a big reason big movie studios came to Toronto to shoot their films was because of the relatively cheap price of resources because of our low dollar.

Luckily, the Toronto film scene doesn't seem to have suffered much (yet) from the rising dollar. This year's Toronto International Film Festival was one of the most successful festivals yet, studios are still blocking off entire blocks downtown to shoot their new blockbusters, and Toronto filmmakers are continuing to impress film critics and audiences around the world.

Of course, that's only my humble opinion. Over the next few days, some of blogTO's film writers will be weighing in on their thoughts about this year in Toronto film — the good, the bad, and the ugly — and the state of the movie-making industry in our city.

Have any thoughts on film in Toronto this year? Check out the various posts by the film writers this week and let them know if you agree or disagree. At the end of the week, we'll open it up to all of you to tell us about your personal Toronto film highlights and low points.
