A TIFF virgin laments that the 2012 edition has departed the scene

The buzz is gone. King Street is relatively quiet, that is, as quiet as the main street of the Entertainment District ever is. The “red carpets” are gone, the TIFF box office in Metro Hall is empty, and the crowded line-ups are no more. However, I am no longer a TIFF virgin. I have survived my first experience with the festival and I am enjoying the after-glow. It was great!

I enjoyed the festival, my favourite move being “Zaytoun.” My second choice was the documentary “Showstopper: The theatrical Life of Darth Drabinsky.” Next year, I will certainly purchased a greater number of tickets.
