Toronto's famous film festival is the largest film festival open to the general public. Unlike Sundance and Cannes which see a number of independent features and world cinema, the Toronto International Film Festival has the glamour of Hollywood coated all over it, and is considered by many filmmakers and studio bosses to be a successful launching platform to begin the crazy award season that eventually climaxes with the Academy Awards in March. The Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) screens nearly 400 films at about 34 venues in downtown Toronto, attracting audiences amounting to something like 400,000 people, of whom about 4,000 are industry professionals.
