Toronto International Film Festival artistic director Cameron Bailey on Tuesday  announced the festival would host its second annual Asian Summit on Sept 10.
“Last year we were honoured to have among our Asian Film Summit guests film-makers Chen Kaige, Mira Nair and Eli Roth, film executives Harvey Weinstein, Bill Kong, Chris Dodd, Nina Lath Gupta and Stuart Ford, and global superstar Jackie Chan,” said Bailey [pictured].
