It frustrates me that "Carol", "Steve Jobs", and "Suffragette" are skipping TIFF but showing at Telluride. I'm sick of all this behind-the-scenes politicking and jockeying and competition between festivals to secure premieres. There always seem to be big titles that Toronto loses out on because of whatever the reason may be. As an attendee of TIFF, the only premiere status that I care about is that they are new films that haven't shown in Toronto before. I don't care if it's World or North American, or even to some extent Canadian premiere but I guess there are people that do care and having that premiere status raises your profile and attracts attention to media and buyers.I couldn't agree more. Well, Telluride gets Steve Jobs, but not its main star, and Toronto got neither. I can deal with this and enjoy TIFF with extra relief this year. But surely, Michael's schedule in October will permit him to attend NYFF and most likely London too, so I look forward to seeing him there.
