By Andrew Moran     Sep 19, 2010 in Entertainment
Toronto - The winners of the 35th annual Toronto International Film Festival have been announced. The festival audiences chose a historical drama, a vampire film and an environmental documentary as the festival’s best motion pictures.
The 35th Toronto International Film Festival has ended for another year and the movie stars have left the city. Toronto film festival organizers have announced the winners of this year’s event, which is chosen by festival audiences. The awards are sponsored by Cadillac.
The Cadillac People’s Choice Award went to “The King’s Speech,” which stars Colin Firth and Helena Bonham Carter. The film surrounds the story of King George VI who suffers from a dreadful nervous stammer and the public and officials deem him unfit to be king.
There will be a free screening of this picture on Sunday evening at the Ryerson Theatre.
The Cadillac People’s Choice Midnight Madness Award went to “Stake Land,” which tells the story of a teenager who is saved by a vampire hunter in a post-apocalyptic world. They battle both vampires and a militia, which believes the reckoning is part of God’s work.
The Cadillac People’s Choice Documentary Award was awarded to Sturla Gunnarsson’s “Force of Nature: The David Suzuki Movie.” This documentary reflects the live of the 75-year-old environmental activist, David Suzuki.
Winning directors will also receive $15,000 from Cadillac and a handcrafted, glass-and-crystal award.
