Congrats to Our 14 Fellows and 25 Members Taking Films to Toronto!

All eyes are on our neighbor to the north this week, thanks to the Toronto International Film Festival. We are proud to announce that 14 Film Independent Fellows and 25 of our Members will be screening at the star-studded festival, and many of them—including writer/director/producer Ramin Bahrani with 99 Homes, producer Pamela Koffler with Still Alice, starring Julianne Moore and Kristen Stewart (as Moore’s daughter) and Daniel and Ben Barnz (director and producer, respectively) with Cake, starring a decidedly de-glammed Jennifer Aniston—are already grabbing a hunk of the buzz. Best of luck to everyone.
