As always, here is a list of the films I’ve requested tickets for. Depending on how the ticket lottery goes, I could get anywhere from none to all of these. Disturbing news this year: “donors” to the new Bell Lightbox facility will have their orders processed before the rest of us, in order of “donor level.” In other words, the rich will be served first. As if it doesn’t cost enough for the average person to attend this festival. Oh well, every year they give us something new to complain about, but they also bring us some amazing screenings. Let’s just hope I can get to all the ones I want to see.

What (and how many) are you planning to see this year?
I’m working during TIFF this year (the horror!) so I don’t think I’ll be able to catch more than 20 films. (I’ve seen a few already, thankfully.)
I’m really looking forward to catching a screening of the work in progress on New York I Love You.
Huzzah! I got everything I picked and so did my wife, so that means no lining up for four hours tomorrow to make substitutions. I can use the day instead for watching more screeners and hopefully posting more pre-TIFF reviews!
