TIFF ’10: Diving into The Book on the night before the fest

By Sean O’Connell

Hollywoodnews.com: This is my first official report from the 35th Toronto International Film Festival. Some posts will be short. Others will be long. This one will remain brief because, well, the festival doesn’t start until tomorrow.

But this evening, I’m hunkering down with The Book.

Though this is my fifth time in Toronto for the fest, I’ve never once received The Book. When I mentioned that to a friend of mine, he was shocked. The Book, apparently, is The Bible for TIFF attendees … and thumbing through it, I can see why.

At 448 pages, the official TIFF guide tells you EVERYTHING you need to know – and more – about the films and filmmakers at the fest. There’s a smaller, pocket-sized calendar to help you plan your day, but even that publication directly references back to The Book. The Book is sacred. The Book is holy. The Book is heavy, and so I’ll likely leave it in my room!

But for tonight, it’s all about the potential in each film I’m hoping to see while up here. So I’m hitting The Book. Hard. And tomorrow morning, I’ll hit the ground running. Be sure to check back often and read what I have to say about this year’s Toronto International Film Festival.
