Galas and freebies today at TIFF

Til SchweigerAt noon, Yonge-Dundas Square is offering a free screening of the concert film U2: Rattle & Hum, to coincide with U2 being in Toronto for two live concerts at the Rogers Centre. At 3 p.m. as part of TIFF's Silent Film Series, the 1927 romantic comedy It, starring Clara Bow will be screened. Then at 9 p.m., there will be a performance, rock show, installation and film screening of Band, by cutting-edge New York artist Adam Pendleton, who refashions Sympathy for the Devil, Jean-Luc Godard’s 1968 cinematic paean to the Rolling Stones and the Black Panthers, into a contemporary art happening that places the celebrated indie art-rock/post-punk band Deerhoof at the center of the action. This event is presented as part of Future Projections. Gala screenings for tonight at Roy Thomson Hall are Phantom Pain, at 6:30, with Til Schweiger attending on the red carpet, followed by a 9:30 screening of Coco Chanel & Igor Stravinsky, with actor Mads Mikkelsen scheduled to attend.
