TIFF venue infested with bed bugs?

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Last week, I joked on Twitter that I might start calling the Toronto International Film Festival the Scotiabank Theatre Festival. It looked like I would be spending the bulk of my time in Canada at that multiplex, as it was hosting almost every press screening.

So yeah, this news worries me just a little.

A customer at Toronto’s Scotiabank reported bites they believed came from bed bugs after attending a screening at the theater, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

This prompted TIFF co-director Cameron Bailey to hit Twitter and start calming visitors planning to cover the fest.

“Before bed bugs becomes today’s meme: We’re on it, we’re talking to Cineplex and are planning for an itch-free (festival),” Bailey tweeted.

The good news? There’s more than enough time before the festival launches on Sept. 9 to treat the little buggers if, in fact, the Scotiabank is infested.

The bad news? Press and industry folks might be inhaling toxic fumes for the duration of the festival’s run. At least we now have good excuses if a film puts us to sleep. “It’s not your movie … it’s the chemicals!”
