I haven’t blogged in a while, and there are loads to say as to what I’ve been up to the past few weeks – they’ve been packed with meetings with people involved in organizing the Waterfront Night Market in July – but I won’t go too much into that today. Today, I am here to promote this amazing Belgian thriller that I just finished watching!
Tag: Toronto International Film Festival
TIFF ended 15 days ago, and I am just writing my TIFF experience blog now. Sigh. I’ve had such a hectic schedule since the end of August, I’m not sure why I decided it would be a good idea to start a brand spankin’ new blog. Perhaps I underestimated the workload for the first month of school… Though actually, it’s less about the “first month of school” but more “first month of the last year of undergraduate school”. I have always been involved with extracurricular activities at school, but because I am in my last year, I’ve felt greater pressure to add more to my resume to ensure I can start my career as soon as I graduate. This meant trying to juggle positions at two part-time jobs, one student group, four school courses, and briefly, a two-week volunteer position all at the same time. Chaos.
Having worked the Toronto International Film Festival this year as both a volunteer and a filmgoer, I often get asked about what movies I’ve seen at TIFF so far, and what’s been my favourite. I am watching two more movies tomorrow, Hotell and A Wolf at the Door, so while I can’t say this Korean movie has been my ultimate favourite, it’s definitely in my top three!
Regardless of the film or the response to the film you’re in, there will always be a love for the fact that you did something creative and that everybody is excited about it. I think that’s the spirit here.
