With TIFF mum on how many celebrities could grace its red carpets and refusing to share projected attendance and media accreditation numbers until after the festival, a sense of uncertainty is looming large.

When the Toronto International Film Festival rolls around each year, few people are as busy as Charles Khabouth.

The tempered expectations have come from twin Hollywood strikes that have halted film and television productions and scuttled press junkets, red carpets and star powered-premieres as the Screen Actors Guild-American Federation of Television and Radio Artists and the Writers Guild of America hit the picket lines over the spring and summer.

"We still have to be ready we're still unsure to this date the amount of A-listers coming," said Khabouth. Katherine Johannson, the director of events, sales and partnerships at Forthspace Hospitality Group, is similarly predicting "it is going to be a little bit of a different TIFF this year."
