We spent about a half hour this morning booking our tickets for this year's festival. We will see twenty films in eight days, and strangely it seems like a light load. I'm sure I'll feel differently about thing at 2 AM Thursday night after our fourth movie that day.
We got nearly all of our picks, a big improvement over 2011. The schedule (see pop-up calendar to the right or embedded calendar at the bottom of the blog) is up and current. TIFF did something a bit different this year: you make and receive your tickets real time - when you pick them, you know you have them. In previous years, you arrived, waited in line, listened to the drum roll in your head, and then found out what you got.
If you'd like to play along at home, you'll find a link in the contents of each calendar entry with details about the film.
Departure in 11 days!
