Indiegogo is doing their annual pilgrimage up north to Canada hitting the streets of Canada’s largest city for the Toronto International Film Festival or TIFF. As the cottagers slip back into their Fall routines one thing they may look forward to are the cool films at the Fest starting this week. The 11 day “whirlwind” has it all, stars, creative types, red carpet events, parties and over 300 films from around the world. Indiegogo states they will have the most crowdfunded films showing at this year’s TIFF.
