Picking a TIFF Flick

The Mister and I will be in TO during the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) this month and we have a free afternoon.  With no musicals that we (I really mean “I”) haven’t already seen, our thoughts turned to TIFF.  Actually I blame my friend Maureen (of TBB and MODECOR fame) who tuned me into TIFF.  She has a slight addiction to film.  But it’s OK, I still love her *mwah*.


So, off I went to the TIFF website to see which of the film would suit both our tastes.  You know – the hopeless romantic (in case you are wondering that’s me) and the logical realist (uh-huh – we are a great match *wink*).  Holy crap on a cracker! During our five-hour window there are 24 – yes TWENTY-FOUR – movies to choose from.

How the H-E-double hockey-sticks are we supposed to pick ONE film to see???  We are going to have to either 1) do some in-depth analysis of each film to decide which we would like, OR 2) throw them all in a hat and pick one!

My brain already hurts thinking of looking at all films – so … I’m off to get a hat!


Wish us luck!

  3. Enjoy!! I am sure what ever you see will be an event… there always seems to be such a buzz around TIFF. We have never been but it looks like a fantastic place to people watch!!

    Maybe there will still be a celebrity or two at their own film to gawk at?? Good luck winning, I mean picking, a movie ;)

  5. What a fun “date”…one for the bucket list. Would love to hear about your experience! Hopefully we’ll meet at Blogpodium too :)

  6. Very cool! I would just take my own time getting there, find parking without getting stressed out, maybe grab a bite and then have a look at the line ups and go see whatever! Have fun and let us know what you ended up seeing.

      I’m a little excited about it Katie! It will be the last weekend of TIFF (I’ll be in TO for BlogPodium) so all the celebs will have cleared out by then … DARN!

    Wow that many in 24 hours…crazy. Good luck. I’m curious to see which one you pick.

      Crazy Lisa! And what’s worse … the ones we would have said an unequivocal yes to, didn’t make the time cut! I’m sure we’ll be happy with whatever we choose.
