And the filmmakers were also celebrated by the audience at the world premiere of “1899” at the 47th Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) on Tuesday evening (local time). “We’re honestly pretty nervous after three seasons of Dark. This feels very fresh to us. It’s our baby,” Odar said in Toronto.
