Sense of nervousness setting in

I always get the "Out of town" package, b/c I'm in Dallas. It's almost like Christmas when the truck pulls up with the new book and schedule and I get to rip it open and start making my picks.

Usually, the package is here before I wake up. It's supposed to be delivered by 10:30 a.m. It has always been early. This year, it's still not here.

I'm trying not to panic. I've already done my research on the website. I have a set plan already in place. But it's not here. It's so cruel. 10:45 and no package.

I check the email confirmation to make sure the address is correct. Yes. Make sure I paid for OOTS. Yes. Make sure the thing says by 10:30 a.m. Yes. Aaaargghhh.

I'm not good at patience, but it's not time to panic yet.

Any luck yet?!

Thanks for your thoughts on planning a schedule. Really helpful for a first time festivalgoer.

Quick question, if I didn't do advanced ticketing (long story), do I have ANY chance of getting tickets on 9/6 online to anything that has "Buzz"? Are there "scalpers" at the festival or other ways to get information? Just curious.

Keep up the good work!

There will always be "Rush" tickets. Two years ago, I didn't get "Crash" in my initial package, but I was dying to see it. So I got to the Rush line about 1.5 hours before the show, with a box and supper, sat down, got in the show no problemo. It's just a matter of how badly do you want to see the movie and how long are you willing to wait in line. The bigger the auditorium that the film plays in, the more RUSH tickets will be available.

Thanks for the advice. I appreciate it.

Good luck with the Out of Town Package! I've read about several people who have had the same issue, but sounds like TIFF is working on a resolution.

Thanks again!
