Membership has its privileges

This may well be the last year I can afford to be a TIFF member, and perhaps the last year I can take the week off work, so I’m very happy that once again being a member paid off. I got all my first picks, and received my notification in a very timely manner. Here’s the list:

9/18     Countdown                                         3-5                               TIFF

I’ve heard some negative reviews of Page Eight (it’s already been shown on the BBC). Not that it’s terrible, just not very original. Other than that, I know only what I’ve read in the TIFF programme book, and I’ll avoid all reviews from now on. The best part about TIFF is seeing movies in an atmosphere where everyone wants to enjoy it. That doesn’t save the worst of films, but it makes okay ones seem really good, and great ones seem amazing. Bring it on!
