The Documentary Show

TIFF Wrap-Up, and The Documentary Show

Lights at the EX, 2009 TIFFis over for another year.  It seemed so big this year I can't even imagine what the next will be like.

I got to see two more films, the first was a doc - The Art of the Steal.  Such an amazing film!  It was a fast-paced suspenseful thriller, telling the story about the Barnes collection in Philly and how it was "stolen".  My heart skipped a beat for sure at several point.  There is serious buzz around this film.

I also saw Tanner Hall, which was really great.  I loved the characters, and the film was shot so beautifully.  It has been described as a coming-of-age film, and I feel it does a great job at that.  It covered some tough subjects in a touching way--I loved how the filmmakers allowed you to see both sides of a story, or character.

Thanks to the TIFF organizers for such a great volunteer party. This is London was definitely an awesome venue!  I had a lot of fun, and can't wait for next year.

Okay, so with TIFF over, now onto concentrating on my doc, and also a new side project: The Documentary Show!  A new radio show hosted by me, on Ryerson's online radio network Spiritlive.  Broadcast details will be announced soon!  Email the show if you have any ideas for topics or whatnot, or if you'd like to be involved in some way. , or visit the twitter!
