Visitors producer Lawrence Taub told the following to Indiewire:
"To have the opportunity to première Visitors as a live special event at the preeminent Toronto International Film Festival could not have been foretold. As senior producer, I've witnessed an unimaginable series of events unfold, starting with my invitation to Steven Soderbergh to look at the just completed final cut of the film and his immediate response by becoming the on-screen presenter and our advocate to the cinema community, the interest and support of Cinedigm, the continuing support of our collaborators in Montréal, the PHI Center, topped by the endorsement of Piers Handling, director of TIFF. To be able to present a motion picture with a live orchestral accompaniment in the historic Elgin Theater gives Visitors the chance to be seen in a manner that is unique in the world of cinema, and is a tribute to director Godfrey Reggio, as well as composer Philip Glass and associate director/editor Jon Kane."
After its September 8 debut at the Toronto International Film Festival, Soderbergh's Cinedigm will distribute Reggio, Glass and Kane's 'Visitors.'
