Key:
Features (40min. and up) are in bold
Shorts are in italics
★ - I have seen this film and feel that it is quite good (6.0 and higher)
✘ - I have seen this film and wish I hadn't (3.9 and lower)
● - I have seen this film and am more or less okay with that
○ - I am seriously considering making an attempt to see this film during the festival
☀︎ - I made this film
⌛ - This film is at least 150 minutes long
👓 - This film is stereoscopic
🍁 - This film is (perhaps secretly) Canadian
® - This film has a Canadian distributor
® - This film has a US distributor ( if it is currently scheduled to be theatrically released in 2019)
📼 - This film is with Netflix, Youtube, or other VOD-centric distributor, so may not receive a theatrical run
16mm, 35mm, 70mm - It'll be screened from a film print

Colour coding:
NYFF - Slate and Main
SUNDANCE - American factory
BERLINALE - Cinema is dead, but...
CANNES - On the crown of kings I write your name
LOCARNO - Films dramatiques
VENICE - Inversion intégrale
NOTABLE - Movies I am actively looking forward to, for whatever reason

(Colours trump whatever is below them, so e.g. a film that played both Cannes and Locarno will be gold, unless e.g. it ends up in the NYFF Main Slate in which case it will become purple)

Shorts are in italics.
★ - I have seen this film and recommend it (6.0 and higher)
✘ - I have seen this film and recommend you don't (3.9 and lower).
● - I have seen this film. It's okay.
○ - I am seriously considering making an attempt to see this film.
⌛ - This film is at least 150 minutes long.
👓 - This film is at least partially stereoscopic.
🍁 - This film is (perhaps secretly) Canadian.
® - This film has a Canadian distributor.
® - This film has a US distributor. (Will be  if it is currently scheduled to be commercially released in 2018.)
*vod* - This film is with Netflix, Youtube, or other VOD-centric distributor, so may not receive a theatrical run.
16mm, 35mm, 70mm - It'll be screened from a film print.

Colour coding:
NYFF - Main Slate only, sans Opening, Closing, and Centerpiece films
SUNDANCE - New Sara Colangelo, for instance

CANNES - Personae gratae
LOCARNO - The extra-humans
VENICE - Where stars are born
NOTABLE - Films that I'm actively looking forward to, for whatever reason

(Colours trump whatever is below them, so e.g. a film that played both Cannes and Locarno will be gold, unless e.g. it ends up in the NYFF Main Slate in which case it will become purple)
