CBC's Glenn Gould Studio announced as Toronto International Film Festival venue


TORONTO — Toronto International Film Festival® , in partnership with the CBC, is pleased to announce the Glenn Gould Studio as a venue host for various public and industry programming during this year’s Festival. The new venue will function as a main location for the newly expanded TIFF Industry Conference, which runs from September 6 to 12. Programming taking place at the Canadian Broadcasting Centre’s Glenn Gould Studio includes Industry Conference Keynote Session, Master Class, Moguls, Mavericks, Telefilm Canada PITCH THIS! on September 9 and Doc Conference (September 10 and 11).

“As the jewel of the Canadian Broadcast Centre, Glenn Gould Studio is just steps away from TIFF Bell Lightbox — the central hub for Festival activity,” said Cameron Bailey, Artistic Director of the Toronto International Film Festival. “We welcome the CBC’s addition to Festival Village, and consider the venue an ideal spot for the special events and industry programming we have planned.”

Glenn Gould Studio is located at 250 Front Street West, on the main floor of the Canadian Broadcasting Centre. Named after the famous Canadian pianist, the venue houses excellent acoustics and uniquely acts as both a premiere public concert hall, corporate venue space and superb recording studio.

The Festival’s Official Film Schedule was released today, and is available at the Festival Box Office or by visiting tiff.net/festival. Copies will also be distributed in The Grid on Thursday, August 22. A 20-page section about the Festival will appear in the Toronto Star on Thursday, August 29, and will include the full film schedule.

Purchase Festival tickets online at tiff.net/festival, by phone from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. ET daily at 416.599.TIFF or 1.888.599.8433, and in person at the Festival Box Office located at 225 King St. West.
