And let's not forget Robert Koehler's love of all things Toronto:


I've followed these debates with great interest. I imagine that for the average moviegoer, this is a non-issue. Bigger is better. For those of us who are critics/programmers/researchers/filmmakers, maybe it's a different story. Personally, I prefer intimacy over sprawl in my festivals. Still, as a cinephile, I would find it hard to say that too many films in any setting is a bad thing.

Very interesting, Dina. This one caught my eye earlier "Can Telluride
Continue to Steal Venice and Toronto’s Thunder?" by Peter Debruge.

All kinds of issues and claims going on.
