Cliff Curtis’ Murina, Kiwi co-production Night Raiders among Toronto Fest’s best

by James Croot

Murina, Violet and Charlotte are among the most memorable movies that screened at this year's Toronto International Film Festival.

The 46th edition of the prestigious Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) delivered plenty of mouthwatering cinematic treats for Kiwi movie fans to look forward to.

While, a couple, like The Mad Women’s Ball and The Starling, are already available on streaming services, some of the big hitters (DuneSpencerDear Evan Hansen) will be coming to a cinema near you over the next few months and a clutch have already been lined-up for this year’s New Zealand International Film Festival (Bergman IslandFleeMemoria).

Although Jane Campion’s locally shot The Power of the Dog only finished third in TIFF’s prestigious People’s Choice Awards, there’s the consolation of knowing it has already been locked as the NZ film fest’s opening night movie. And besides, the eventual winner, Kenneth Branagh’s Belfast, is currently slated for a January 6 release.
