In a couple of hours we’ll be boarding our flight, and then a short while later we’ll land in Toronto for the opening night of TIFF09! We’re just in town for a weekend this year but we managed to get tickets for 13 films, the big day being Friday when we’ll be in and out of the theatre all day seeing 6 films starting at 9:30am and ending sometime around 2:00am.
Tonight is the Diablo Cody written horror flick Jennifer’s Body starring Megan Fox. I have always loved the Midnight Madness series at TIFF, and I’m so glad to be able to catch the opening night flick this year. Actually, we’ll be catching all the midnight flicks while we’re in town, so I’m really excited about that.
I think we got a decent cross-section of films – some mainstream stuff, some indie, some Canadian, some international… since we were just buying individual tickets, obviously some of the more buzzed-about films were sold out long before we got to them. We didn’t get a lot of first screenings, so we may not see as many Q&A’s, but that’s ok. Most of what we got I’m pretty excited about regardless, and really it’s all about the films this week.
As I have in the past, I’m going to try to blog when/if I can, but will tweet throughout so be sure to follow me on Twitter. Below is the trailer for Jennifer’s Body again – can’t wait to see the Midnight Madness crew out for this one tonight!
