So Long, TIFF

I'm in the midst of post-TIFF malaise, where my body gets confused as to why it all of a sudden gets to sleep more than 3 hours a night, eat vegetables and hydrate itself with water and tea instead of white wine and vodka. I can't say I'm sad it's over... I always breathe this sigh of relief when the Toronto Film Festival is over in that I've survived it professionally, socially, mentally and physically. But I also can't say I didn't have a great time. The majority of the 17 films I managed to get see where good if not great ("Trigger," "Rabbit Hole," "The King's Speech," "Beginners" and "Meek's Cutoff" being my top five), the new festival geography was exciting and sort of surreal for a Torontonian (I kept forgetting what city I was in when I got to spent time in the fabulous Bell Lightbox), and a the 2010 awards season was officially and considerably launched (more on that later).

I now have 72 hours to detox, errand run and friend-and-family see before I head off to a questionably ambitious New York Film Festival->Reykjavik Film Festival->London Film Festival journey that will take me away from my home and native land for over a month, so this blog'll be more or less dormant until I head off. In the meantime, check out indieWIRE's main site for a slew of post-fest coverage and a new awards column, and look back at TIFF 2010 with a selection of links below...
