Luck Of The Draw

Gulp.

Earlier today the TIFF website announced that Box 48 was selected in the lottery draw as the first box to be processed for the public Advance Order Procedure. There were 54 boxes in the draw.

I dropped my ticket selections off this morning and my box was number 44. Ugh. This means that I won’t be able to see a lot of the films I selected and will have to choose some alternate screenings. At 7 AM on Thursday morning I’ll be standing in line at the TIFF box office, hoping that I can find some alternate films in my schedule.

This happened a couple of years ago and I had to select a bunch of films that I didn’t know very much about. The suprising thing is that I saw a lot of really good films like Pan’s Labyrinth that won a few Oscars.

I’ll be seeing approximately 21 films during the festival and hopefully a few advanced screenings this week. I’ll post my final list of films in a few days and hope to see a few of you in line at the screenings.
