Monster master Guillermo del Toro will lead a four-night master class on the films of Alfred Hitchcock in Toronto.
The presentation is part of TIFF Bell Lightbox's upcoming spring program, which will also feature a two-night performance from Crispin Glover.
Organizers say del Toro's classes will include a one-hour introduction and one-hour post-screening lecture for each film.
They include Frenzy, Shadow of a Doubt, North by Northwest and Notorious. The classes are slated to run May 7, 8, 15 and 16.
Meanwhile, Glover is slated to offer a dramatic narration of eight of his illustrated books while images from the books are projected behind him.
Those performances take place April 14 and 15, and will be followed by a film screening, Q&A session and book signing.
Del Toro’s films include Pan’s Labyrinth, Blade II and the Hellboy series.
