I went to my first TIFF premiere with Whedon’s Much Ado About Nothing, which similar to Matt Brown, I thought it was absolutely great and I was surprised at how funny he managed to make it without being able to change the dialogue, just visually. Sounds like Sunday’s screening was a bit more intimate with a longer Q&A, but I had managed to get tickets Saturday morning at 7 am and wasn’t sure if I was going to be able to pull off the same for the Sunday screening.

Personally, while I may enjoy an actor’s performance, I’ve never really cared about meeting any of them or gotten that whole star hunting thing. That said, directors and writers, I get more fanboy-ish over as I’m a lot more interested in the hearing what they have to say. Plus the really good writers tend to be quite entertaining in person during the Q&A or whatever they are doing. If I get a chance to talk to them, occasionally I have a question for them but most of the time I just say thanks for making such great art that I love.

As for the Argh during the piracy warnings, at the Much Ado premiere they were pretty loud, but perhaps it was in part the size of the crowd. That said, I still come across TIFF newbies, who get a big kick out of it, despite the fact that it might be dying with the long time crowd.

Also, I have misstated the length. It’s not THAT long. But it is pretty damn long, nonetheless.
