TIFF 2011: My Schedule

Well, it’s that time of year again. For the 17th year, I’ll be attending the Toronto International Film Festival. Alas, even though I applied this year for the very first time, I was not successful in obtaining press accreditation. Nevertheless, I’ll still be seeing my normal ten films, which I’ve listed below. I was also fortunate to be able to attend a number of pre-festival press screenings, so you’ll see those reviews posted during TIFF as well. Special thanks to the geniuses behind Tiffr, an online scheduling tool that becomes more indispensable each year.

In addition the above, I’m hoping to catch the entire 15 hours of Mark Cousins’ documentary series The Story of Film: An Odyssey which is showing for free. I’m going to try to see it in five 3-hour segments, screening at 10:00am each day from Monday September 12 through Friday September 16. It’s also being shown in two parts on the final weekend of the festival, but that sounds a lot more exhausting.

    I’ll be there for Shame and Damsels!

  2. I know a few others who will be sharing that particular double-bill on Tuesday. Interesting pairing, I think.

    Yeah, it seems like Shame is a must-see for most of the people I talk to. And I’m glad to see Whit Stillman getting some love. It’s been so damned long since Last Days of Disco.
