2009 Toronto Film Festival

The TIFF this year will run from September 10 to 19 and will screen too many films in too many sections. Definitively those living in Toronto and nearby will have a great opportunity to watch fantastic films, especially those that come from Cannes 2009, in the big screen.

As most films are known to the blog, I’m listing the fest sections and each name has a link to the section in the fest site for those that want to check the movies and read movie information.

Canada First
City to City
Dialogues: Talking With Pictures
Future Projections
Reel To Reel
Short Cuts Canada
Sprockets Family Zone
Yonge and Dundas Square
Canadian Open Vault
Contemporary World Cinema
Gala Presentations
Midnight Madness
Special Presentations

To some of my known readers that live in Toronto I suggest to not miss Choi Voi (Adrift) in the Contemporary World Cinema section. If you haven’t seen the original Nathalie probably you will like Chloe; also Precious and The Private Lives of Pipa Lee in the Gala Presentations section. All are lesbian interest.

Sometimes too much is too much, as is the case with this fest that will screen 271 features in 18 sections (not counting the short section). You really get lost with so many sections.
