DE PALMA ON JURY FOR TIFF PLATFORM PROGRAM
3-PERSON JURY ALSO INCLUDES ZHANG ZIYI & MAHAMAT-SALEH HAROUN, 12 FILMS IN COMPETITION
Brian De Palma will be part of the three-person jury for the Platform section of this year's Toronto International Film Festival. The other two jury members will be director Mahamat-Saleh Haroun and actress Zhang Ziyi. Platform, named after the Jia Zhang-ke film from 2000, features "12 films from filmmakers with strong voices and distinct styles," from all over the world, according to the TIFF website. It was started last year for TIFF's 40th birthday, with a jury made up of Claire Denis, Agnieszka Holland and Jia Zhang-ke.

On September 18th, the best Platform selection will be awarded a $25,000 prize by the jury (TIFF 2016 runs Sept. 8-18). Last year's jury chose to give the prize to Alan Zweig's documentary Hurt, out of a line-up that included Ben Wheatley's widely acclaimed High Rise. TIFF director and CEO Piers Handling is quoted at Broadway World: "We are honoured to have De Palma, Haroun, and Zhang on the Platform Jury for the programme's second year. Each one of them brings a breadth of expertise and experience in visionary filmmaking, artistic direction, and unprecedented, bold narratives. We are thankful to our esteemed jury for making the time to be here this September to celebrate our renewed commitment to artistically ambitious filmmaking with Platform."

Cameron Bailey, TIFF's artistic director, is also quoted at Broadway World: "Platform's vision is championing aesthetic magnificence and De Palma, Zhang, and Haroun, have all either created or been a part of films that have inspired, revolutionized, and transformed the filmmaking industry. We are thrilled the jury members will be able to share their wealth of knowledge with this year's Platform filmmakers who are creating groundbreaking narrative forms. We can't wait for the jury to join us in Toronto and be a part of Platform's history."

Below is the list of 12 Platform films the jury will be viewing:

Have anyone heard if he will do a conversation on stage or something that us, the fans can see him? As a De Palma enthusiast and follower, it would be beyond a dream to meet the legend, he is a cinematic God for me!
