I'm heading off to the Toronto Film Festival today for a week's worth of sitting in the dark. Well, not completely. I actually don't plan to duplicate my six-to-seven films per day schedule from last year, not because I can't handle that many or there aren't enough films I want to see, but for too many reasons to list here, I have to focus more on the other elements of festival-going this time. I plan to mostly stay away from the New York Film Festival titles (as I can see them here in the coming weeks) and focus a lot more on the films that otherwise may not be coming to a theater near you in NYC, unless maybe we have some room for it in the Spring.
It's a busy September ahead -- Toronto, Independent Film Week and New York Film Festival press screenings, skydiving (uh huh), my birthday giving me official late-30s status, some parental visits ... I'm already exhausted and wish it was October.
Meanwhile, assuming there is some content that pops-up here as I stubbornly keep telling myself there will be, not everything over the next week will be Toronto related ... but we'll see how much time I have. Either way ... stay tuned ... if you want ... or something.
And if you're in Toronto too, give me a holler!
