TIFF 2007 (Eric’s diary): Waking late, feeling great

TIFF 2007 (Eric’s diary): Waking late, feeling great

Today began, surprisingly, around 12:30 PM. Who knew I would require 11 hours of sleep after my 13 1/2-hour snooze-athon the previous night? It’s very, very fortunate that our first movie didn’t start until 2:45 PM, because it could easily have been a few hours earlier, and we would have..

TIFF 2007 (Vickie’s diary): Michael Moore, Joy Division, and sweltering theatres.

9-7-2007 It’s been quite the eventful Friday. I began the day with my annual TIFF haircut at the Aveda Institute (meaning I had to skip my 11:45am screening of Jodie Foster’s The Brave One), and had a wunderkind dynamo working her magic scissors on me. The result? Fantastic. Unfortunately, due..

TIFF 2007 (Eric’s diary): Opening night

I guess today is technically our first full day in Toronto, although Dan and I spent much more time awake and doing stuff yesterday, since we arrived in town at 6:30 AM and didn’t sleep until 9 PM. Kind of shockingly and kind of unsurprisingly, we slept for a whopping..

TIFF 2007 (Vickie’s diary): The lanyard-wearing festers flood the city as TIFF begins!

9-6-2007 Dear lord. It’s 1:34am, I have The Skulls on in the background and I am only just now starting this blog entry. It’s been a very long day… most of which was not spent TIFFing. I met up with Eric and Dan for dinner before a walking tour north..

TIFF 2007 (Eric’s diary): The beginning…

I’m writing this from my hotel room in Toronto, where I’ll be attending the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) for the next seven days. This has been a huge dream of mine since I started going to the Seattle International Film Festival (SIFF) in 2001. I’ve always wanted to visit..

TIFF 2007 (Vickie’s diary): Lamenting TIFF’s ticketing system

9-3-2007 Every year, something somewhere goes awry with TIFF’s ticketing system. We all know how I feel about their lottery but, random drawing aside, there is still an abundance of annual flaws with the way orders are handled and processed. This year, it seems, a number of out-of-town packages wound..

CINEFFABLE’s Lesbian and Feminist Film Festival – October 2006, Paris

Cineffable’s Lesbian and Feminist Film Festival (27th – 30th October 2006) all took place in Montmartre, the old bohemian quarter of Paris, which now is inexplicably full of fabric shops. It was also full of lesbians for the duration of the weekend. The Trianon, the festival’s main venue, is actually..
