Hotel Rwanda a favourite with festival

Hotel Rwanda, Irish-born filmmaker Terry George's gripping true story of one man who saved thousands of lives during the 1994 Rwandan genocide, has been voted the favourite film of the 2004 Toronto International Film Festival by the people organizers say are the most important, festival moviegoers.

The UK-South Africa-Italy co-production starring Don Cheadle and Nick Nolte won the AGF People's Choice Award at an awards brunch today following the end of the 10-day festival.
