http://tiff13.tiffr.com/schedules/simonec - there's only one film that we couldn't get, but besides that, I'm all set.
I will have complete focus on providing Fassinating Fassbender coverage on Michael's appearance at the Princess of Wales Theatre, next Friday, Sept 6th at 6pm for the world premiere of '12 Years a Slave'. I will post pictures at my FassFass twitter and Instagram. And I am trusting the 52 dedicated pinners at the popular FF Pinterest board to be on top of pinning images of Michael that they find while he's at TIFF. In the evening, I will update the blog with Fassy related news and information, but other than that, my Theatre of Zen blog will cover the rest of my TIFF activity.
Each year I attend TIFF, something changes about it, it becomes more popular, more movie fans come, more industry people come, more press come. Along the red carpet, star gazers with no desire to watch films clog the sidelines up by camping out all day, and developing an unfriendly attitude to boot. Paparazzi are in action and it's interesting to see them at work too. There are long queues to wait to enter theaters to watch the movie, and let's not talk about the run for life to get to the ideal seat once in the theater. But I love it all as a cinephile, and that's why I have gone there for a decade. I don't go to TIFF just because of Michael, that's pathetic, I go there because loving cinema is a part of my DNA and I love to review films and write all about my experience at TIFF. And for those of you who are primarily interested in just the Michael aspect of TIFF, I pledge to do my best to give you what you want from a fellow fan who is determined to cover the best actor at TIFF this year.
