Default Toronto film festival, Still no Gord?!

Just checked the official TIFF site, and still no trace of the proposed Gord Documentary. Wondering if this will ever see light of day now, a shame!

AS I reported before it looks like the mooted George Martin documentary featuring Gord Mike and Barry at least
WILL be on US TV (PBS) this fall see:-
http://soundbreaking.com/featured-artists/
I read the full announcement
"ARLINGTON, VA; March 14, 2016 – Music and film lovers at South by Southwest® will be the first to get a sneak peek at SOUNDBREAKING: STORIES FROM THE CUTTING EDGE OF RECORDED MUSIC, an upcoming eight-episode PBS series that explores the extraordinary impact of recorded music on the modern world. SOUNDBREAKING was the last project produced by legendary music producer Sir George Martin who passed away on March 8. The series combines unprecedented access to some of the most celebrated music artists, producers and innovators with rare archival studio footage and an extensive musical soundtrack, to deliver one of the most wide-ranging series on the art of music recording. SOUNDBREAKING will broadcast on PBS stations weekdays from November 14-23, 2016 at 10:00 p.m. ET (check local listings). The first two of its eight one-hour episodes will premiere at South by Southwest® (SXSW) in Austin, Texas with screenings on March 14, 16 and 17 as part of the Festival’s “24 Beats Per Second” line-up."
So be patient!!

YouTube trailer
yaccording to comments on the YouTube page for thar trailer the airing of the series has already begun on Sky TV
Having poured over the website I have sent the following message on the website's contact form. I'll report back if and when I get a reply.
Soundbreaking: Stories from the Cutting Edge of Recorded Music
As an avid fan of the iconic Canadian folk singer/ songwriter and poet Gordon lightfoot I was most interested to see his name plus two of his band , namely Barry Keane and Michael Heffernan listed on your page listing the artists featured in the series but on the individual episode song lists no Lightfoot song title is shown nor is there any other mention of Gordon in the full description of each episode.
Yet I clearly remember him and some of his band members somre years ago mentioning their filmed appearances for this project. Did they end up on the editing floor or what??
here are two screenshots made from the Featured Artists page onhttp://www.soundbreaking.com
