    As a TIFF first-timer, I found the whole experience of picking up the booklet, ‘dropping’ off the selection and picking up the tickets (if you’re lucky) is extremely ridiculous.

The greatest irony that I found was there were two line-ups, one for the advance order drop-off which stretch from King to Front St,and the other for purchase line which is completely empty. Go figure!

I’ve boycotted TIFF since I arrived in Toronto in 2003 because of this bullshit hype and fake buzz they try to create. It’s immensely disrespectful to the audience. Except, this year, my favourite Indian actor Aamir Khan will probably be here and I’m trying to get tickets to his film Dhobi Ghat Premium Screening. &#^^@#$%$
