TIFF. List '09

Update 9/10/09 - Added a few more short films to the list

Below is the list of films I will be seeing at the 2009 Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF.) beginning later this week. I originally had tickets to Drew Barrymore’s Whip It, Cracks, and Good Hair (Saturday screening) but traded them in for films from Israel, South Korea and the Philippines. TIFF. tickets can be purchased online until Saturday September 19, 2009. [Purchase TIFF tickets]
