TIFF12 schedule, first draft

With the help of invaluable site--I’ve scraped together a tentative schedule for the Toronto International Film Festival 2012. The hours of work that went into planning it are likely to be destroyed once it’s time for me to redeem my package tickets and find that half of my preferred choices are off-sale, but it’s a starting point. I’m publishing the schedule here because I thought it might be of interest, especially to fellow TIFF-attending friends, and to help me keep everything straight.

I’m sorely tempted to see Paul Thomas Anderson’s THE MASTER, but with it scheduled to open in Columbus on September 21, it’s hard for me to justify doing so, even if it will be projected in 70mm. Among those films of interest screening after I will have departed are Marco Bellocchio’s DORMANT BEAUTY, Hong Sang-soo’s IN ANOTHER COUNTRY, LEVIATHAN, MOTORWAY, and ROOM 237. While they aren’t currently on my schedule, I may--so help me--check out the new films from Harmony Korine and Rob Zombie.

Even if each ticket redemption were to fall in my favor, which it surely won’t, I’m likely to tweak this schedule, be it due to not being committed to all of these or hearing festival buzz. For now, these are the tickets I’ll be pursuing.
