Earlier we talked about a special TIFF announcement that was being teased. It was released that they are sponsoring an extensive exhibit on David Cronenberg and his film career! Read on from Criterion Cast:

As he hits the Croisette with his brand new film, Cosmopolis, beloved Canadian auteur and Criterion staple David Cronenberg is set to be fodder for a new and brilliant sounding exhibit thanks to the Toronto International Film Festival.

Set to launch in the fall of next year, the exhibit will be turned into a roadshow the summer of 2014, and will feature artifacts, props, documents, interviews and “reconstructed set-pieces from Cronenberg’s films.” There will even be a “multi-platform augmented reality game, The Worlds of David Cronenberg, which will complement and enrich the exhibition using a combination of social media technologies. A dedicated film programme with newly struck 35mm prints and new digital versions of select films will accompany the exhibition.”

In what is easily the most extensive look at Cronenberg’s career, this is one of the most interesting sounding retrospectives in some time. The idea of an AR game being made based on his work is insanely enthralling, and makes me hope like all hell that this sucker makes its way to somewhere near me. Toss in some newly minted 35mm prints of his classic works, and you have a true must-attend retrospective.

Click HERE to read the rest! We’ll wait and see if Cosmopolis is included. It most likely will. 🙂
