TORONTO, Aug. 30 /CNW/ - Will Brad Pitt show up at the Toronto
International Film Festival(R)? Where does Reese Witherspoon eat breakfast
while in Toronto? <a href="http://www.aol.ca/">AOL Canada</a> today announced that former MuchMusic VJ Hannah
Sung will give Canadians the ultimate insider's view of the Toronto Film
Festival as AOL Canada's exclusive correspondent.
No stranger to the spotlight, the former MuchMusic VJ and pop culture
reporter has interviewed some of the biggest stars in music and entertainment
today. Sung boasts a roster that includes Mick Jagger, Johnny Depp, U2,
50 Cent, Avril Lavigne, Coldplay and Alanis Morissette.

Canadians access to exclusive red carpet commentary and behind-the-scenes
perspectives over the entire action-packed ten days of the festival, from
September 6th to the 15th.
"I really want to bring Canadians festival scoop they don't usually hear
about - from the craziest antics of hard core movie fans, to what celebrities
really think about the whole fame game," says Sung. "I see myself as an online
tour guide who knows the local hot spots and the places stars hang out when
they think no one's watching."

Toronto International Film Festival Guide at <a href="http://canada.aol.com/torontofilmfestival/">AOL.ca/TorontoFilmFestival</a>.

celebrity parties, and keep an eye on the stars as they let loose."
