TIFF still hop­ing to work with Drake

Waterloo Region Record - - Arts & Life -

Drake’s scrubbed ap­pear­ance at the Toronto In­ter­na­tional Film Fes­ti­val may have left some fans up­set, but the two could still col­lab­o­rate in the fu­ture, sug­gests the artis­tic di­rec­tor of TIFF. The Toronto rap­per can­celled his ap­pear­ance at a screen­ing of “Mon­sters and Men” with only a few hours of no­tice on Sept. 6, the first day of the fes­ti­val, cit­ing his tour. TIFF artis­tic di­rec­tor and fu­ture co-head Cameron Bai­ley says the fes­ti­val was “dis­ap­pointed” but adds he un­der­stands “things can change.” “We’re hop­ing that since Drake is so com­mit­ted to this city and so com­mit­ted in a new way to film and to vis­ual me­dia, that there will be other op­por­tu­ni­ties for us to work to­gether,” Bai­ley said in an in­ter­view.
