TIFF 2015: My Updated Schedule

TIFF_Sep6

When I say that buying TIFF tickets is incredibly stressful – this is what I mean. The sale started at 9am, and I entered the website and got into the queue. I had to wait for about 45-50 minutes before I could get into the website (you see my number in the line). I didn’t have high hopes, as previous years the queue didn’t work properly, I was kicked out more than once, etc.

This year they must have made some major improvements, because this queue actually did work! I got into the website and I even managed to purchase tickets! Of course, The Martian, Legend and first 2 screenings of The Danish Girl, as well as Black Mass were off sale. No surprise there. But I got the ticket for the third and final screening of The Danish Girl which is better than nothing. I also got a ticket for Freeheld, which is a gala!

I made adjustments to my schedule and this is how it is going to look like. Yes, I will have to rush three movies (The Martian, Legend, Black Mass), but I already have 2 vouchers (unused from my package) plus those screenings are at rather convenient times, so I should be able to get to the rush line 2-3 hours before the screening. (It does not guarantee that I would get in, but it is a fair chance.)

I admit, I am not sure how I am going to manage this crazy schedule. I will probably need lots and lots of coffee.
