Paris (Hilton) for one night only!
Late last week, producers of the new Paris Hilton documentary—Paris, Not France—cancelled two of three scheduled TIFF screenings of the film. The two slashed events are in the print book but have been wiped off the festival Web site. And oh, how the rumour mill is spinning! (Not least of all at Page Six, which couldn’t be bothered to spell director Adria Petty’s name correctly—but we digress.) Documentary programmer Thom Powers says he’s “very excited” about having even the single screening of a film he describes as “a case study on the role of celebrity in our culture.” Hilton is to attend the Toronto screening to do whatever it is she does; her people say that one screening helps create buzz, but there are rumours out there that Hilton is attempting to block the film’s sale. It’s all so meta. Stay tuned.—Katy P.“
