Stupidity and selfishness caused me to miss this year's Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF 2007). But I don't think it should prevent me from having to cover it.
At this point, the festival is basically over. Most of the people have left, except the diehards. There is still the closing night film on Saturday, but the closing film hasn't been stellar in any of the year's I've gone.
I've picked out the schedule that I would have picked had I gone. And since I'm picking films mostly at the Ryerson, I'm confident that I would have gotten tickets regardless of what box I landed in at the lottery.
I'm going to start presenting those films. With pictures, YouTube trailers, interviews and possibly reviews (from the Trades).
