Today we bring you the latest from the bustling cinematic metropolis that is Toronto, where the 2017 International Film Festival is currently engorging cinephiles in some glorious motion picturing. Yesterday the press day for Call Me By Your Name, the new film from acclaimed filmmaker Luca Guadagnino (the director of A Bigger Splash and I Am Love), took place and we were there to capture it.

The film has played very well across the festival circuit, debuting at this year’s Sundance Festival, wowing audiences in Berlin before making its mark on Toronto. It is being hailed by critics as one of the films of the year, including our own Stefan Pape, who gave it 5 stars, saying “we have a beautiful landscape to immerse ourselves in…an even more wondrous narrative playing out in front of it. What a treat.” You can read his full review here.

Actors Armie Hammer and Timothée Chalamet were in Toronto yesterday, you can see the press conference highlights right here.
