I just received an email from TIFF, confirming that my Out-of-Town Package
is on the way will be shipped tomorrow. Only a few more hours a little more than a day until Christmas morning, when FedEx will show up at my office, program book in hand. Let the obsessive package-tracking begin.
Over lunch today I finished working through the film list and have done just about all of the research I can do before the full descriptions go live. Here are a few smaller films that have caught my eye.
- Teza - Haile Gerima, Germany/Ethiopia/France
- Shakespeare and Victor Hugo's Intimacies - Yulene Olaizola, Mexico
- Hooked - Adrian Sitaru, Romania/France
- Winds of September - Tom Shu-Yu Lin, Taiwan
- Sea Point Days - François Verster, South Africa
With a lineup like TIFF's you have to take some chances. Any other suggestions for potential hidden gems?
