The full film list should be online by 10 AM August 20th according to the TIFF site. Not sure how all the new content coupled with the additional images they have for films will be handled, but my money is on it being like a trip in the wayback machine to the world of dial-up. Hope I’m wrong considering that Bell is a lead sponsor – you’d think they could hook ’em up with some extra bandwidth during peak times. I plan to wait until everything is up at TOFilmfest and start the Google Notebook shortlist on the weekend.
Another important date – August 21. The Entertainment Weekly Fall Movie Preview will be available. Yes Twilight is on the cover, get over it. It’s a good cross-referencing tool when you are choosing between two films. If a movie has a North American distributor with a recognizable name and a release date within a month of the festival, you have to ask yourself if you think the experience of the film is worth the extra 10 spot vs the possible agro of seeing it with a regular audience.
