The 2011 Toronto International Film Festival has come to a close. We covered the hell out of it and we’ve got loads of interviews still to post. Today, TIFF announced the winners in three award categories for Canadian films and the winners of the Cadillac People’s Choice Awards. Nathan Morlando’s crime drama Edwin Boyd (pictured above) won Best Canadian First Feature Film, Philippe Falardeau’s Monsieur Lazhar picked up the award for Best Canadian Feature Film, and Ian Harnarine’ Doubles With Slight Pepper was awarded Best Canadian Short Film. As for the Cadillac People’s Choice Awards, Nadine Labaki’s Where Do We Go Now? won the top prize, Jon Shenk’s The Island President won in the documentary category, and Gareth Evans’ The Raid picked up the award for The Cadillac People’s Choice Midnight Madness Award.
Hit the jump for the full press release along with a list of all the films that were sold to distributors. Keep in mind that just because a film didn’t sell during the festival, that doesn’t mean it won’t be picked up for distribution in the near future.
