The Kings Speech Movie

TIFF 2010 award winners announced

TIFF announced the list of award winning films earlier this afternoon. The most prominent prize - the People's Choice Award - went to Tom Hooper's The King's Speech starring Colin Firth and Geoffrey Rush. The film tells the story of King George VI's efforts to overcome his speech impediments by hiring a speech therapist who has some rather unorthodox techniques. The film, as is the tradition for People's Choice Award Winners, will be screened again for free this evening at 6pm at the Ryerson Theatre. Tickets will be available on a first-come, first served basis beginning at 4pm at the Ryerson Theatre box office.

Other 2010 award winners are as follows:

Best Canadian Short Film: Les Fleurs de l'창ge
Best Canadian First Feature Film: The High Cost of Living
Best Canadian Feature Film: Incendies
Prize of the International Critics (FIPRESCI Prize) for the Discovery programme: Beautiful Boy
Prize of the International Critics (FIPRESCI Prize) for Special Presentations: L'Amour Fou
People's Choice Midnight Madness Award: Stake Land
People's Choice Documentary Award: Force of Nature: The David Suzuki Movie
