TIFF 2014 Line-Up

16mm, 35mm, 70mm - It'll be screened from a film print. (Probably only applicable to Wavelengths shorts from now on.)
Features (40min. and up) are in bold.
Shorts are in italics.
⚉ - I have seen this film.
★ - I have seen this film and recommend it (6.0 and higher)
✖ - I have seen this film and recommend that you don't (3.9 and lower).
♨ - This film can go to hell.
○ - I am seriously considering making an attempt to see this film.
ஃ - I made this film.
C - This film was made by a Canadian. If it's any good, Torontonians ought to be able to catch up with it soon enough.
FS - This film is available for me to watch on Festival Scope.
® - This film has a Canadian distributor.
® - This film has a US distributor.

Colour coding:
NYFF - Main Selection only.
SUNDANCE - Listen Up Cameron.
BERLINALE - Alfred Bauer or bust.
CANNES - I've seen maybe two of the Jury Prize winners and I really don't like one of them.
LOCARNO - 5 hours and 38 minutes.
VENICE - The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance.
BIGGIES - Films by name directors that I'm actively anticipating, perhaps ill-advisedly. Also, films with raves from the other major festivals (Rotterdam, BAFICI, SxSW, Tribeca, etc.).

(Colors trump each other hierarchically, so e.g. a film that played both Berlin and Cannes will be red, unless e.g. it ends up in the NYFF Main Slate in which case it will become purple.)
