Diversity Takes Center Stage at the 2018 Toronto International Film Festival

TIFF line-up showcases potential box office and award season contenders from a diverse pool of filmmakers and storytellers.

  • Technicolor and its family of creative studios, including MPC, Mr. X, and Mikros, worked on 14 diverse features screening at TIFF – seven of those with female directors.
  • Mark Kueper, Senior Colorist at Technicolor Toronto, joins “In Living Colour” Industry Panel.

 

The 2018 Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF), which runs Thursday, September 6 through Sunday, September 16, is one of the largest film festivals in the world; open to the general public, it draws nearly 500,000 attendees over its 10-day schedule. This year, TIFF will showcase 343 films, offering a diverse selection for moviegoers that reflects Toronto's spirit of inclusive, passionate engagement with film.

Technicolor, MPC, Mr. X, and Mikros teams worked on 14 features screening at the festival, ranging from Alfonso Cuarón’s cogent and nuanced semi-autobiographical feature ROMA – to ANTHROPOCENE: The Human Epoch, the third documentary collaboration between award-winning photographer Edward Burtynsky and acclaimed filmmakers Jennifer Baichwal and Nicholas de Pencier. ANTHROPOCENE is one of seven features at TIFF directed by women that Technicolor collaborated on, prompting Baichwal to remark, “The way to improve how women are represented in this industry involves complex and concerted efforts across the spectrum of development, production, post-production and distribution. When the representational norm tips towards equity, this will create its own momentum for change.”

TIFF industry conferences will be hosting a panel discussion with Baichwal and de Pencier and their longtime colorist, Technicolor Toronto’s Mark Kueper, exploring the synergy between directors and colorists and how they establish the visual language for their films.

Here’s a quick look at the features worked on by Technicolor.
