  1. I've gone to the Toronto Documentary Forum many times, both to pitch a project and to observe, and it's the single most valuable industry event to go to if you want to learn the ins and outs of international co-production. So it's completely worth going if only for that alone. But it sounds like there will be much much more going on. All I can say is don't think twice about going. Just do it! And then thank me when you see me up there.
