TLN Television, Canada’s multilingual media company, kicked off the Cinema Paradiso Film Festival September 6-18. According to data gathered by NLogic, over half a million movie fans tuned into 13 evenings featuring English-subtitled award-winning foreign films. The TV event also debuted four first-time Canadian premieres. “This unique TV event was inspired by grumblings over recent years about TIFF not being accessible to everyone”, said TLN President, Aldo Di Felice. Di Felice pointed out that the audiences for TLN’s Cinema Paradiso Festival outnumbered TIFF’s attendance .As a result, TLN has decided to permanently add Sunday subtitled foreign films on the channel.
