Photo Gallery: The TIFF red carpet, Day 5 The ball is rolling at the Toronto International Film Festival, as the stars get bigger and brighter by the day. Above, at at the link, our favourite red carpet looks from Day 5. (Photos: Canadian Press; Reuters; Getty Images)
Q&A: Roger Ebert, critical master Despite the fact that Roger Ebert has not spoken a word since 2006 — his lower jaw was removed during one in a string of surgeries he underwent while being treated for cancer — his voice is stronger than ever. Thanks to a prolific output on his blog, Twitter and in print, the 69-year-old film critic is enjoying a popularity that possibly dwarfs his work with the late Gene Siskel. His new memoir, Life Itself, was released Tuesday, and he’ll be celebrating the launch at TIFF. He conducted an email Q&A with the Post’s Mark Medley. (Illustration: Kagan McLeod)

What (not) to say to the stars at TIFF Every time the Toronto’s film festival season rolls around, there exists the remote but completely plausible possibility that you’ll be lining up for late-night poutine behind Werner Herzog. And that’s when you’ll remember that you have this page bookmarked on your phone and be eternally grateful for our hard work.

George Clooney: The man who we stare at Toronto remains a city where it pays to pretend you’re blasé about celebrity. Perhaps it’s fitting that arguably more than any other star, Clooney has become the face of TIFF in recent years.
Clooney’s affair with Toronto surely counts as one of the most lasting relationships he’s had. And it is a love affair, insofar as the press loves Clooney, both the Toronto-based home team and foreign journalists. Over coffee and cocktails, they ask each other if they’ll be covering “the Clooney,” as his appearances have come to be known. Bet on Clooney’s face gracing more newspaper sections and website home pages than any other over the next 10 days as he promotes The Descendants, a family dramedy, and The Ides of March, in which he does double duty as both director and star.
