Bill Murray gets festival honour

Bill Murray is to have a special day dedicated to him and his works at the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival.

September 5 has been named Bill Murray Day in honour of the Oscar-nominated funnyman.

On the day, film fans can attend free public screenings of three of his most-loved comedies - Stripes, Groundhog Day and Ghostbusters - ahead of the world premiere of the 63-year-old actor's latest film, St Vincent, directed by Theodore Melfi.

Those who attend all three screenings can win tickets to walk the red carpet of the St Vincent premiere alongside Bill himself.

In St Vincent Bill plays a grumpy, hedonistic war veteran who befriends his young next door neighbour who is struggling to cope with his parents' divorce.

The Toronto International Film Festival, now in its 39th year, runs from September 4 to 14.
