Oh, I think we will be having some overlap – yay! I’m going to wait until I get my picks back before getting to schedule-happy though.

Those actually seem nicely spaced out – rock on! I think I was a little crazier doing back to back to back with a few tight turnovers.

you get all your selections!


Me and you John, Rocknrolla!

seriously of your list I am seeing Rocknrolla, Public Enemy and the Wrestler at the same times… assuming we get even close to these seminal works of modern cinema.


nice selection of films there! alot of films are on my list as well (zift, waltz with bashir, tony manero, sauna, ashes of time… just to name a few).


Nothing says TIFF like having only 2 minutes to get from The Elgin to the Varsity by over scheduling screenings. I’ve never learned this lesson and continue to fail at doing this.

Wisely I don’t generally sched 9am screenings after the Midnight ones anymore..

Mad Hatter

Some solid choices on your pick-list…maybe I’ll run into you at one or more of these.

FYI, they pulled box #9 as the starting point for processing orders. What box was your envelope in?

2 min from the Elgin to the Varsity? Are you going to fly? Good luck!

Yay John for being in box #13!


Subway, pick the right end of the car, trot under the station to the bay exit, in the theatre, jog the escalator, and hope that the film starts late. This has happened more than once, I’m almost always lucky.

I missed the first 5 minutes of American Movie in an Elgin/Uptown run some years ago, but usually I can count on screenings starting a few minutes late, and all the TIFF-crap they show before each screening. Doubly so if it is a premiere and the director/whathaveyou has to intro the film. Suprising how may times I’ve made it just as the house lights go down (a mini flashlight on the keychain is a must). I saw Dirty Pretty Things sitting on the stone step at Uptown once because nobody could actually find an empty seat. Mental note, bring small cushion for times like those.

Wow, that’s pretty impressive!
