    Hello,

    The topic really says it all. Anyone going to the Toronto International Film Festival. I'll likely be there from the 7th through the 12th.

    Anyone local going or anyone else from out of town?

    Mark

    I'm going. Got a Day Pass like I did last year. 25 Movies in one week. Tomorrow The program book becomes available and it will be time to pick which to see. So hard as there over 300 to choose from.

    Anyone planning to see The Myth? I'd be interested in a spoiler-free review.

    I went to my first film ever of the Toronto Film Festival. After having lived here for 2 years I finally went to a film yesterday. I went to see the world premier of Oliver Twist. There were a couple of exec producers there, but none of the cast or director.

    The film was solid and is worth seeing, but I think it will be the last mainstream film I'll see there. I enjoyed the film, but I'm not bothered about seeing them first so paying $23 for a film I can see in a month of so for $10 without any of the queuing on a bigger screen then I'll do that.

    I will be looking down the schedule and I'll try and get out and see some of the films that are unlikely/will not get a general release here.

    I decided to make the trip to Toronto this past weekend, and it was definitely worth it. It was my first time attending the festival, and I tried to make the most of it while I was there... I saw 6 films, though I really wish I'd stayed longer.

    - Shanghai Dreams
    - L'Enfer (Hell)
    - Capote
    - Brokeback Mountain
    - Breakfast on Pluto
    - The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada

    I also took a few photos:
