Full film schedule online!

Today marks the beginning of the best part of the pre-fest, the planning! With the full public schedule now online, and full descriptions too, there is everything needed to begin to shape the days ahead. For me, the wait is longer: the Industry schedule won't occur til later in the week. Today is the day that the program guide becomes available too at the public festival box office, and when ticket ballots can be handed in.

I am working on linking all of the programs and films at right - but it may take a while! In the meantime, here is my own personal film list: the movies I intend and/or hope to see. Although obviously I won't get to all of these! I have asterisked my ten top seeds.

Wow! Impressive and ambitious list, I've got a few of those one my list as well. It's so exciting (and challenging!) to work on the schedule.

Fingers crossed you get all your picks.

Thanks, Shannon! It's what I call the "rough cut" list. I have just indicated my top seeds. They are entirely personal choices but we all know those movies that we HAVE to see, no matter if they will get released, or may not seem as interesting as others. Good luck with your list too!
