Keen to see the helmet that Matthew Modine wore in Full Metal Jacket? How about behind-the-scenes photographs from the making of 2001: A Space Odyssey? The dresses worn by the ghostly sisters in The Shining?
Well, Stanley Kubrick fans, you’re going to have to wait a year but the Toronto International Film Festival is promising that some time in fall, 2014, it will display a big array of Kubrickian paraphernalia, ephemera, mementos and props at its TIFF Bell Lightbox headquarters.
It will be the first and possibly the only Canadian stop for the exhibition, which was put together in 2004 by the influential director’s estate – he died, at 70, in 1999 – and the Deutsches Filmmuseum in Frankfurt.
TIFF announced it had snagged the show, which has had successful runs in Rome, Amsterdam, Melbourne and other centres, in a release issued Wednesday. Additional details are to be announced in the weeks ahead.
