TVIFF: WRAP-UP

I just want to thank everyone at TVIFF, and in particular Annette Brown, for allowing our little media outlet to attend this year’s festival. While the sick bug prevented me from attending the final day of the festival, I still feel like we have a nice array of films for me to write up and present to you.

The thing that’s great about TVIFF is the same thing that might turn people off to it. It is a small festival… but one that makes up for lack of size and star power (as compared to other fests) with charm and accessibility. Most importantly though, they screen films that a lot of other fests won’t. The talent in this festival is such that many filmmakers here could easily become huge talents in the industry. However, without fests like TVIFF, they may never get an opportunity. Which brings me to my next point…

If you’re a film lover, you can’t just see films like Get Low or Sideways and think you’re supporting independent filmmaking. You need to help find the diamonds in the ruff out there and give them the support they need to survive. TVIFF provides a great opportunity for this so, if you have the time, drop by their website and try and attend in the years to come. You can do that by CLICKING HERE!!!

Now, unfortunately, films at TVIFF typically only get 2 screenings. It makes seeing everything just impossible. So, here’s a link to all the films that played this weekend. Most of these can be found on IMDB for more information. Enjoy:

Stay tuned for the next episode of MILFcast where I’ll pick my best of the fest! Until then, we’re taking the week off to recuperate but there’s plenty of posts for your reading enjoyment so… ENJOY!!!

  1. Though I might like to attend Sundance just once, I think I vastly prefer going to a small festival like this over a big one. At the smaller ones, there’s still plenty of quality filmmaking to be seen, but the filmmakers are likely present, and grateful to have you there sampling their wares. In other words, it feels less like a commercial for their future box office and more like, you know, a film festival. Films like 127 Hours might benefit from added buzz at TIFF in the form of more box office, but do they really need the press attention? No one is going to forget about a Danny Boyle flick.

    Sounds like you had a great time in spite of being sick. So…you gonna cover it again next year?

  2. Awesome coverage of TVIFF Kai, sorry to hear you got sick, the weather is turning and everyone is getting a bug lol.Hoping for a fast recovery soon! 🙂

  3. Great coverage, Kai. I love it when bloggers do this sort of grassroots thing. It’s just a great way to spread the word on films that we wouldn’t really hear of otherwise.

  4. Small festivals certainly need more attention and I’d love to cover one myself. Great job, Kai!
