The Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) is perhaps the largest if its kind open to the general public. Unlike Sundance and Cannes, which screen a number of independent features and world-cinema projects, Toronto's famous film festival has the glamour of Hollywood coated all over it. Many filmmakers and studio bosses consider it to be a successful launching platform for the crazy award season that eventually climaxes with the Academy Awards in February. TIFF screens nearly 400 films at various venues in downtown Toronto, attracting audiences amounting to something like 480,000 people. About 5,000 of them are industry professionals.
