Toronto Spotlight on Solidarity

A CELEBRATION OF SOLIDARITY: A Different Kind of Spotlight

Over 1,000 filmmakers, actors, writers and other cultural producers from Palestine, Israel and around the world — including include music and cinematic legends Harry Belafonte, David Byrne,  Julie Christie, and Viggo Mortensen — have signed on to The Toronto Declaration objecting to the Toronto International Film Festival’s celebratory spotlight on Tel Aviv.

International support for the declaration continues to grow despite denunciations, unfounded personal attacks on earlier signatories Jane Fonda, Danny Glover, and Naomi Klein, and despite an aggressive campaign of misinformation regarding the letter’s content.

This Monday, September 14th at 7:00 p.m. in Toronto, some of the names behind the Toronto Declaration, will be gathering with messages of solidarity and responses to their critics.

Monday, September 14th at 7:00 p.m.
Rogers Communications Centre, Ryerson University
80 Gould Street, Toronto
(northeast corner of Church Street)
