TIFF 2012

Can’t forget the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF), which opens on September 6 and runs until September 16. I seldom get out to this, since I’m usually pretty booked up in September – especially with theatre-related stuff – and often I’m working on a show (which I am, but not till a bit later this month – more on that soon).

Two movies that caught my attention this year:

The Lesser Blessed (based on a novel by Richard Van Camp, adapted & directed by Anita Doron): http://tiff.net/filmsandschedules/tiff/2012/lesserblessed

Here’s an interview with the three young stars of the film, courtesy of Spartan Youth Radio:

Stories We Tell (personal documentary by Sarah Polley): http://tiff.net/filmsandschedules/tiff/2012/storieswetell

Here’s the trailer:

I was able to get a ticket for The Lesser Blessed for this Sunday’s opening screening, but not quick enough to score one for Stories We Tell – so I’ll be looking for that film’s release after the fest.
