As we get closer to the start of the 2013 edition of the Toronto International Film Festival, we had the opportunity to sit down with our friend and TIFF Cinematheque programmer, Brad Deane. Brad is responsible for programming the Festival’s slate of restorations – a program only in its second year, but boasting the premiere of last year’s Dial M for Murder 3-D restoration and this year’s new DCP restoration of David Cronenberg’s Shivers, among other newly restored classics. We talk about the decisions and implications that comprise this program within the Festival, as well as how it relates to his role as the Manager of Film Programmes in the year-round programming of the TIFF Bell Lightbox’s retrospectives, regional spotlights, classic film slates, and more. The TIFF Cinematheque program is free to attend and includes An Autumn Afternoon, Gun Crazy, Hiroshima mon amour, Le Joli Mai, Manila in the Claws of Light and Rome, Open City.
