Box #9 out of 78 is the Start of the TIFF Lottery

As I tweeted earlier, box 9 was drawn as the starting point for the 2008 advance order lottery process. The festival is reporting that there are 78 boxes in total (although it doesn't mention if that includes the donor boxes or not). The donor orders will be processed first, then the festival will start processing box 9, 10, 11, etc., until it gets to #78, then they will do boxes 1 to 8.

My friend dropped off the other half of our orders this morning at 10:30, and ended up in box #49. The Benefactor donor box looked to be about 80% full at the time.

As mentioned in a previous post, the festival will now start processing the advanced orders. If you provided an e-mail address, the festival will (usually) e-mail you once your order has been processed, letting you know which films you got, and which ones you didn't (for which they will give you vouchers to select other films). You pick up your actual tickets or vouchers this Monday, September 1 at the Toronto Life Square box office, starting at 10:00 AM.


I'm in Box 39. Dropped off around 9am this morning. Figure that gives me an okay shot at most films on my list, but you never know. Thanks for updating...great idea to use twitter for this purpose....Happy festival!
