X is a sponsor of this year's festival, and Technicolor Toronto will also have a presence at the event, including Technical Operations Manager Brian Reid joining cinematographer Catherine Lutes and other guests for the FOUNDATIONS session Cinematography Workflows on the Big and Small Screens (Sept. 7, 2:00 - 3:00 pm).
