TIFF Blogs and Resources

Some other blogs covering the festival that are well worth reading are below. Some of the bloggers are in the industry, others are just fans, but they've all been covering the festival for a while now. I always look forward to reading them to see what other people like and don't like at the festival, see what's got good buzz, and find out what else is going on, since it's impossible to catch everything. These blogs are great because they provide a more personal view of the festival, which is a nice contrast to the professional media outlets.

Interestingly, everyone of them (and me) is using

Some additional resources you can use to help plan your festival include:

  • Very good way to search through the list of films by country, language, director, programme.
  • TIFF Reviews: Aggregates news from a variety of different sources, including both conventional media and blogs. Also has a good listing of all the films, and discussion forums.


Thanks for the link! The excitement level sure is rising the closer we get to TIFF time this year, I'm sure that next week it will be over the top once the full film list is announced!

Richard, thanks for mentioning (it's also nice to see TIFFreviews back, too... 8-)
We should have all the films (with synopsis) together in a PDF by Tuesday night -- no waiting for the Official Programme Book! ;-) -- and I'm planning to take Wednesday off work, to try to find reviews for as many of the new films as possible!

Hey Richard, great information here for fest-goers. Send me your email address, so I can invite you to a TIFF blogger get-together a few of us (including Shannon) are planning for Monday September 8th.
