Interview: Brendan Canning

Guess who we bumped into at TIFF? …Broken Social Scene co-founder Brendan Canning (twice, as it happens). After he finished his DJ set at the Grolsch Film Works Discovery Award ceremony, Brendan sat down for a beer with us to chat about scoring the new Lindsay Lohan film, The Canyons, which was written by Bret Easton Ellis and directed by Paul Schrader. No stranger to the movie world, Canning has previously done music for Half NelsonSnow Cake and Scott Pilgrim vs. the World. Here he dishes the dirt on Lindsay Lohan – and trust us, it’s some good dirt.

Interview: Brandon Cronenberg

Amidst all the hustle and bustle at this year’s Toronto Film Festival we managed to sit down with Brandon Cronenberg for a chat about his debut film Antiviral, which is an intriguing horror/sci-fi of sorts.

Some of you keen cinephiles out there might recognise his surname. Are the bells ringing yet? Yes, he is of course the son of veteran Canadian filmmaker David Cronenberg (Cosmopolis). Here Brandon talks about his first film, celebrity obsession and the whole TIFF experience.

TIFF ’12: Party Highlights

Grolsch Film Works Staff

So, this year’s Toronto International Film Festival was, to put it mildly, one gigantic party for filmmakers, film-lovers and film industry types. Just our kind of party, then.

While we were out and about snapping this famous actor and that famous director, we met and chatted to some of the most interesting people known to, well, anyone who knows anything about cinema. So many people, in fact, that we tried to snap as many as we could just so we wouldn’t forget them.
