TIFF 2013 - This year...I'm killing it

After a few pre-fest festivities tonight, the 38th Toronto International Film Festival kicks off on Thursday - and I'm gonna be there every single day. This year I'm going full tilt and packing in a - at least for me - whopping 50 movies in the 11 days of the festival. This includes blocking off Monday night for a mid-fest pub rendezvous with local and out-of-town bloggers and writers, a quiet final Saturday due to family commitments and an early end to the final Sunday to do a post fest pub rendezvous.

I'm not sure it's all in the best interest of my sanity or my health, but I felt I needed to go whole hog at least once. Anyway, I know a number of people who have built even bigger schedules (including critics and press folks who actually started their fests weeks ago), so cut me some slack, OK? I don't promise I'll be doing it again next year...
