For the 41st time, the audience has picked the winner at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF), and Green Book by Peter Farrelly, in his first directorial endeavour without his brother Bobby, was voted as the public's favourite, snatching the Grolsch People’s Choice Award. Set in the American South in the 1960s and starring Mahershala Ali and Viggo Mortensen, the film, like the other recent winners of the award, could become a possible Best Picture Oscar nominee. The 43rd TIFF, which ran from 6-16 September, concluded with the closing ceremony at the TIFF Bell Lightbox, hosted by Piers Handling, in his last appearance as CEO and director of TIFF, and Cameron Bailey, the artistic director of the gathering.
