TIFF 2011 award winners

TIFF announced its 2011 award winners earlier this afternoon. The coveted People's Choice Award was a bit of a surprise, going to a film we didn't think that much of. Nevertheless, it seems we were in the minority when it came to the overwhelming audience response for Nadine Labaki's Where do We Go Now, a film TIFF says tells the "heartwarming tale of a group of women's determination to protect their isolated, mine-encircled community from the pervasive and divisive outside forces that threaten to destroy it from within". The film screens for free at 6pm later today at the Ryerson Theatre.

Other 2011 award winners included:

What do you think of the award winners this year?

A big thanks to I Don't Know How She Does It, an Alliance film opening in theatres on September 16th, for sponsoring our coverage of the 2011 Toronto International Film Festival.
