TIFF07: Wrap-Up

Alright, it is now time for be to sum up the films that I saw at this year’s festival. This year, I shattered my record of the number of films I saw. I was a grand total of 11 ticketed films this year, plus one film I kind of saw while being stationed in the […]

TIFF07: Volunteering finished until next year

Before I continue with this log, I just want to make a quick note that because I have been leaving early and coming home late all week I didn’t have time to post my thoughts on films as I saw them. As such, I will post all my thoughts at once during my festival wrap-up […]

TIFF07: My (nearly) Final Film List

Alright, after visiting the box office this morning I now have put together 90% of the films that I will be seeing this year at the festival. The only ticket I have left to buy is one for a second film on Saturday (using a voucher from my final volunteer shift on Friday). With that […]

TIFF07: My exhausting first day

My first day volunteering at the Film Festival left me very exhausted. I did some tasks that I was familiar with from last year, however about half of my time today was spent outside the theatre at the Rush line (a line-up for people to get last minute tickets). Some celebrities actually showed up at […]

TIFF07: My tour of the Film Reference Library

In an interesting pre-festival event, I took part in a free tour of the film reference library today. According to it’s website “the Film Reference Library, with more than 17,000 book titles and 60,000 film files, holds the world’s most extensive English language collection of Canadian film-related material plus the unique archival collections of Canada’s […]

The Festival is Nigh

Festival Time!

Later today I am going to, once again, sign up for volunteering at the Toronto Film Festival. Like last year, I plan on logging my experiences in this blog. Keep an eye out for that.
