TIFF Remembers Roger Ebert

Roger Ebert loved Toronto (saying in 2010 that he could see himself living there), and had special affection for the annual Toronto International Film Festival. The festival in turn had special affection for him, and opened the 2013 show with a tribute to the late film critic with the above short. It's a lovely little tribute, and a reminder that TIFF remains one of the few earnest festivals going. It may attract the stars and the big festival films, but it remains at heart and in practise a simple film lovers festival. And no one loved films more than Ebert.

About MR. Clark

Adopting the descriptor of "successfully unpublished author", MR. Clark began writing things on the internet in 2012, which he believed to be an entirely reputable and civilized place to find and deliver information. He regrets much.
