TIFF 14: ‘Rosewater’ with Jon Stewart, ‘Wild’ & Benedict Cumberbatch

The Toronto International Film Festival did not slow down much this year after the first busy weekend, which was kind of a surprise. For as long as I've been going to TIFF, the first four days of the festival have always been blockbuster, while the week after kind of fizzles away. This year though, TIFF has kept the pace going, and it's kept me busy late into the week.

TIFF 09: A peek at the Canadian press conference

As my last post confirms, this is indeed my favorite time of year, hands down. That's because I just got back from the Canadian press conference for the 2009 Toronto International Film Festival, which takes over the city from September 10 to 19. It's like Christmas for film fanatics like myself, mainly because it gives me a chance to dine on my love of film for ten straight days, and meet a number of cool filmmakers who will be debuting their latest films.
