Overall TIFF 2011 was a year without any one particular standout Film for me and more disappointingly, Celebrity cancellations. And we're not talking minor cancellations. Names like Blake Lively, Jennifer Hudson, Jennifer Lawrence, Maya Rudolph, Michelle Williams, Carey Mulligan and more all failed to make time for their Premieres after committing to do so. Nonetheless it was a TIFF which will be remembered for its Star Power with major names like Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie, Bono and Madonna gracing the Red Carpets.
Something still needs to be said about TIFF's Single Ticket Ordering Process and ensuring measures are taken next year for the convenience of Festival Patrons ordering both online and in-person. That being said also, I myself did see some benefits in the centralization of Screenings and Events around Entertainment District, being able to walk it, cab it and drive conveniently from location to location.
Once again I'd like to thank Olympus for providing my E-PL2 for optimal clarity in my Photos and Acura for providing me with my ZDX for the duration of the Festival. I couldn't have made it without all that luxury, style, efficiency and class! Media Profile, you are amazing. Until next TIFF...
