The Toronto Film Festival turned its second day into a very welcome new holiday, Bill Murray Day, an honour the comedian received, naturally, with bemusement.

"I get to park wherever I want," said Bill, appearing for a Q&A following a screening of Ghostbusters.

Friday was officially dubbed "Bill Murray Day" by the festival, which screened a marathon of Murray classics (Stripes and Groundhog Day, along with "Ghostbusters) ahead of the premiere of his latest, the upcoming next-door neighbour comedy St Vincent.

Fans turned out outfitted in costumes of beloved Murray characters, from his ocean explorer Steve Zissou to his Army cadet from Stripes.
