Young journalists aren’t the only people the peevish and small-minded Toronto International Film Festival fucked over. Obituary for Gerald Pratley, emphasis added:

Long before the Toronto International Film Festival, long before Hot Docs…, there was Gerald Pratley. “There would be no film culture in Canada without Gerald Pratley – period,” says documentary filmmaker Ron Mann. […]

In later years, as TIFF and Hot Docs grew in size and stature, Pratley felt somewhat marginalized. On the one hand, “he was proud,” says [Risa] Shuman. “He didn’t need the film festivals to validate what he’d done.” On the other, “he was hurt when TIFF refused to make him a gold patron and asked him to apply for press credentials.”

Toronto the “good.”
