TORONTO--(Marketwire - November 12, 2007) - Toronto Pictures Inc. (PINKSHEETS: TPICF), a publicly traded film development and production company has engaged California investment bank iCapital Finance, Inc. as its investment banking firm.

"Over the years, Toronto Pictures has proven to have the right amount of perseverance, talent and initiatives. Its management is known for taking calculated risks, in the interest of the company and its shareholders and in order to achieving global Brand recognition and respect for its quality of film product. We strongly believe that the company is on a clear path towards becoming one of the world's leading media and entertainment Studios in the development, production, and marketing of non-violent, ethical and social films to a global audience. We intend to assist Toronto Pictures' management in terms of providing the required financing at this final stage in the company's capitalisation and before revenue is expected to be earned. Furthermore, our function is to assist, advise and push forward Toronto Pictures towards achieving its real market value in today's competitive stock market," said iCapital Managing Director Randall Letcavage.

We have a very strong belief in our product and we have put years into developing and producing the type of films we believe in. We have no doubt that the films will have a great impact, both financial and artistic, once properly released onto the world market. We also know, however, that in order for a film company such as ours to prosper and grow, the proper capitalisation must be available. This is why we went public and this is why we now entered into this collaboration," declared Toronto Pictures President and C.E.O. Bruno Pischiutta.
