Believe you us, darlings, if anyone tells you it’s easy launching a few new series, it is not. It is a lot of work. Just in case you were toying with the idea of developing a laugher or two, as Variety would say, in your spare time.
But, hey, the Toronto line-up, which has been trickling out in bits over the past few weeks, is now out in full and bewilderingly robust and divided into many programs. The complete list is here, and, since we’ve always been thrown off by the way TIFF divvies up their films, we’ll list the "Masters" program below:
Memory for Max, Claire, Ida and company, Dir. Allan King
Quite a bit of NYFF overlap, but that’s to be expected, given the timing of the two. Most of the big premieres and other fantastic stuff over on the "Special Presentation" program, but it’s much longer and we’re weary and sore of heart.
