After making plans and biting my nails for most of the weekend, the TIFF folks finally emailed me on Sunday afternoon. I got 17 out of my 20 requested movies, and one of my alternates, so I’m flying high. The following is my schedule (minus the two movies that I’ll have to figure out once I get to the festival). If you’re going to attend any of the listings below, send me an email so that we can be sure to see each other in Toronto.
