TIFF Premiere #2 - Neil Young Journeys


Neil Young received multiple standing ovations as his new concert film premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival. He was in the right place Monday, as an adoring audience packed the Princess of Wales Theatre to watch his latest collaboration with Jonathan Demme, the Academy Award-winning director of "Silence of the Lambs" and "Philadelphia."

"Neil Young Journeys" is Demme's third film about the grizzled rock hero.

"Journeys," meanwhile, was recorded this past May, with Young bringing his solo tour to a close in Toronto's historic Massey Hall in a gig that offered the full sonic range."

We were lucky enough to attend that live show at Massey Hall so it was obviously really incredible to see Demme's film last night.

TIFF is a ton of fun if you plan ahead and buy tickets in advance...movies can be so much fun!
