My TIFF 2013 Schedule
Okay, okay, you got me, the title of this post is a tad misleading. Considering the likelihood of additional screenings being added to my festival schedule, this is merely the first wave. Now, for those who don’t know, TIFF tickets officially went on sale yesterday at 9:00am ET.
I was up bright and early, various internet accessible devices at my dispose, and a gentle, tingling excitement pulsating from my body. Then, not too long after the initial start time, I began to realize that certain films I had intended on attending were temporarily off-sale. However, one thing you come to realize about the festival upon attending numerous times, is to not get too discouraged when a couple of your preferred screenings go off-sale early on. The reason being, there are several, alternative ways to obtain tickets after the start-date. Each day during the festivities at around 7am, additional tickets typically go on sale. If you strike out again, you can always join the rush line which forms just before the screening you’re hoping to be apart of. Essentially, you line up, then roughly 10 minutes before the film’s start time, the empty seats are counted up and sold to those who are waiting in line…so don’t get too down.
I am not going to lie, it was a bit of a let down. I would loved to have gotten all my tickets from the beginning. Then, I would have nothing to worry about other than getting to the screenings and enjoying the films. Oh well, it’s all apart of the experience and to be completely honest, a lot of fun.
Alright, that’s enough of a summarization, let’s get into my initial schedule. Below you will find screenings in which I have tickets bought and ready to go. Click on the title of the film for all you need to know. For those wondering, Premium Screenings contain a red carpet, celebrity appearances, an intro by the filmmakers, and usually a Q and A. Midnight Madness takes place everyday during the festival at midnight, it is always horror films or thrillers.

Awesome line-up. You’re going to have a lot to digest!
I know! Going to take me a while to write-up these reviews!
Again, so incredibly jealous! Have fun and I hope you score those tickets!
Thanks so much! I hope I get them :).
I hate you so hard, Joseph. So hard.
LOL, it’s okay, I forgive you :).
Wow! You got lots of tickets there :) Totally jealous! BTW, I’m not sure where any of these places are but I’m at Scotiabank 9 on Friday 13th also *GASP* Its just that big Scotiabank, right?
Can’t wait to read your reviews :) Good luck on the other movies!
I do have a lot to take in and regurgitate, so to speak lol. I’m out now but I’ll try to get you information on locations and directions. What movies did you get?! Hopefully I can get the additional, necessary tickets I need ;).
Rigor Mortis and The Wind Rises! Its going to be crazy…Sunday morning at 9am for The Wind Rises..haha! My friend’s all like, you think you can handle watching a movie and driving 6 hours home. I think its just different theatres if it has the # after it. I know where Scotiabank is and Bell Lightbox (I think thats where they had the Burton exhibit).
Sounds good! Have a great time and be sure to let me know when you post reviews :).
Will do :) You have a great time too!
Nice! Looking forward to seeing your reports.
Thanks, I shall do my best :).
You get to see The Sacrament… you sorry bastard!!!
Just kidding, of course. I hope it’s EXCELLENT.
Lol, I hope it’s excellent as well!
