My TIFF 2013 Schedule

2013-Talent-Lab-Toronto-International-Film-Festival

Okay, okay, you got me, the title of this post is a tad misleading. Considering the likelihood of additional screenings being added to my festival schedule, this is merely the first wave. Now, for those who don’t know, TIFF tickets officially went on sale yesterday at 9:00am ET.

I was up bright and early, various internet accessible devices at my dispose, and a gentle, tingling excitement pulsating from my body. Then, not too long after the initial start time, I began to realize that certain films I had intended on attending were temporarily off-sale. However, one thing you come to realize about the festival upon attending numerous times, is to not get too discouraged when a couple of your preferred screenings go off-sale early on. The reason being, there are several, alternative ways to obtain tickets after the start-date. Each day during the festivities at around 7am, additional tickets typically go on sale. If you strike out again, you can always join the rush line which forms just before the screening you’re hoping to be apart of. Essentially, you line up, then roughly 10 minutes before the film’s start time, the empty seats are counted up and sold to those who are waiting in line…so don’t get too down.

I am not going to lie, it was a bit of a let down. I would loved to have gotten all my tickets from the beginning. Then, I would have nothing to worry about other than getting to the screenings and enjoying the films. Oh well, it’s all apart of the experience and to be completely honest, a lot of fun.

Alright, that’s enough of a summarization, let’s get into my initial schedule. Below you will find screenings in which I have tickets bought and ready to go. Click on the title of the film for all you need to know. For those wondering, Premium Screenings contain a red carpet, celebrity appearances, an intro by the filmmakers, and usually a Q and A. Midnight Madness takes place everyday during the festival at midnight, it is always horror films or thrillers.
