This Year at TIFF
Some notable films include First Man, staring Ryan Gosling and Private War, staring Rosamund Pike. First Man tells the story of the first man on the moon. Ryan Gosling plays Neil Armstrong, this film throws us right into the cockpit with Armstrong and his crew on their mission to the moon. While Private War tells us a much different story about the bravery of the journalist Marie Colvin. At the turn of the 21st century Marie is one of the most celebrated war corespondents, risking her life trying to capture the horrors of war.
There are awards that are given out each year at TIFF. One award is the People’s Choice Award, given to a feature full length film. The winner is determined by the film that receives the highest ratings by TIFF attendees.
