9 Fellows and 45 Members Selected for the Toronto International Film Festival

Every September just after Labor Day, a throng of filmmakers and industry professionals head to the Toronto International Film Festival. This year, they’ll be supporting 399 films selected to screen during the 11-day event. Some of them hope to leave with their film solidly in the Oscar conversation, others are just looking for a little positive attention to get above the noise.

Nine Film Independent Fellows and 45 Film Independent Members will be among that group when the festival kicks off next Thursday. We’d like to extend a heartfelt congratulations to each and every one of them and wish them the best of luck at the festival.
