50 Most Influential 2012: a short interview with TIFF artistic director Cameron Bailey

Under TIFF artistic director Cameron Bailey, Toronto has become the place to premiere an Oscar-bait film. Since he’s taken the helm, audience attendance has steadily grown and the festival has cemented its place as the city’s top cultural event. Bailey, No. 15 on our list of Toronto’s 50 Most Influential People 2012, chatted with us about his first job, his extensive knowledge of hospital food and the movie he thinks has had the most impact this year. Though he says he doesn’t have a personal motto, if he did, he thinks it would be: “Work harder. Do more. Get better.” Either way, it’s working.

    Thank you for introducing me to this person. He is a very handsome man and after listening to his comments, I think he is a beautiful person too. I have always enjoyed TIFF. Cameron Bailey’s hard work has resulted in a lot of benefits for those of us who have a love cinema. BTW, I also worked at North York General Hospital in my youth as a volunteer nurse’s aid and it was a very good experience.
