TIFF 2007 Site Now Live

The Toronto International Film Fest has launched its new web site, and finally at their own easy-to-remember URL. Previously, the TIFF site was a subdirectory on the page of Bell Canada, our phone company, which always struck me as odd. Bell’s still the lead sponsor, but the site is much-improved, and they’ll be adding more blogs this year, which should be interesting. Not as interesting as this site, but…

My application for press accreditation didn’t even clear the first hurdle, so I’ll probably just be buying a ten-ticket pass. I’ll have to choose carefully. The first list of films were announced on June 26, and there are a few that I’d like to see, but I’m going to resist the urge to see stuff that will get wide release later. If you’re reading this, and planning to attend the festival, pipe up in the comments and let me know what you’re planning to see.

For the cash-poor but time-rich, TIFF always needs volunteers. If you want to help out, sessions begin on July 12.

    Hi James,

    I just found your web site from a comment you left on the 1stThursday blog…

    I’m going to attend my first TIFF this year (even though I’ve lived in Toronto since 88 – yeah, I know…), so I’ll be following your blog closely for any tips, etc. I expect I’ll be grabbing a ten pack and sticking with evening showings.

    By the way, I also wrote a few “reviews” on my blog of HotDocs films I saw this year (I only managed ten) as well as a couple of screenings of the Short Film Fest (my first trip too).
