My TIFF 2012 Schedule

To the Wonder

TIFF 2012 will be my 11th year attending the festival but it feels like the first time all over again. First off, I purchased a package that was different than what I normally would buy. While it made immense sense for me from a financial standpoint, the flip side of the coin is that I had to wait until everyone else got first crack at the tickets before selecting my films. It was a tough but fair trade that taught me patience if nothing else.

Another first for me this year is that I will be finally meeting several film bloggers from the United States, Australia, and the Caribbean who I converse with regularly online. This will definitely be the biggest highlight of TIFF this year outside of the films. Speaking of the films, here is what I will be seeing at the festival:

Friday, September 7th
The War of the Volcanoes: Bergman & Magnani preceded by Stromboli

Sunday, September 9th
Loin du Vietnam
The Sessions
Gangs of Wasseypur – Part One

Tuesday, September 11th

    1. Neil Jordan is a director who I can usually count on to deliver a good film. The fact that he is going back to the world of vampires is an added bonus.
