TIFF 2006: Early Picks

For the past two days, I’ve been working my way through the 440 pages of the programme book and have figured out ten films I’d like to see that fit into my schedule:

  • Saturday September 9, 2:30pm: The Way I Spent the End of the World (Romania, Director: Catalin Mitulescu)
  • Saturday September 9, 6:15pm: Indigènes (France, Director: Rachid Bouchareb)
  • Sunday September 10, 12:30pm: The Sugar Curtain (France/Spain, Director: Camila Guzmán Urzúa)
  • Sunday September 10, 3:45pm: The Host (South Korea, Director: Bong Joon-ho)
  • Sunday September 10, 6:30pm: Offside (Iran, Director: Jafar Panahi)
  • Tuesday September 12, 7:00pm: Renaissance (France/Luxembourg/UK, Director: Christian Volckman)
  • Thursday September 14, 5:30pm: Blindsight (UK, Director: Lucy Walker)
  • Friday September 15, 7:45pm: D.O.A.P. (UK, Director: Gabriel Range)
  • Saturday September 16, 4:30pm: Lake of Fire (USA, Director: Tony Kaye)
  • Saturday September 16, 9:00pm: Lights in the Dusk (Finland/Germany/France, Director: Aki Kaurismäki)

The next step is to hand in our choices (I’m splitting a 30-coupon book with my wife Brooke and my friend Jay) tomorrow morning and then pick up our tickets next Monday. If we don’t get all our choices, I have a few second choices up my sleeve. But I’m crossing my fingers we’ll get everything.
