    Next year? Buying the full Midnight Madness package of films – assuming that I can buy the not-actually-the-midnight-showings versions if I can’t use a week of vacation time for TIFF. Next year, if I take the time off, either the 50 ticket flex or the 30 ticket version plus the Midnight Madness pack.

    It confuses me that the lottery tickets are picked before the TIFF Choice pack lineups are announced. This means that if you have a TIFF Choice pack and a My Choice pack, you might end up getting one ticket in your lottery pack AND in the TIFF Choice pack. I’m assuming that you can then go trade a ticket in, but seems like a bit of a pain.

    I found out about TIFFR after I’d already done this mostly with pen and paper…

    TIFFR fills that hole TIFF leaves by only supporting the Blackberry for scheduling – my shortlist and my schedule backported from my lottery package. I’ll add in the other films I’m interested in as well over the weekend.

    YOUíRE NEXT

    (1) Films that I really do want to see, and will but tickets for if needed or if I don’t get them in my package
    (2) 2nd choices that would have been 1st choices had it not been scheduled against something good
    (3) Films that sound like decent choices that I might not otherwise go out of my way for, but sit between two films I’m seeing anyway
    (4) Likely opening a week after the festival in limited distribution
    (5) I didn’t even notice this the first couple times through the schedule, but it looks really good

      I totally understand you, there are so many movies I would love to see. However, sometimes it is so difficult to choose just a few, in such situation the best solution is perhaps just browse through all the films again and let some of the descriptions jump out at you.
