TIFF 2013 Survival Guide: How to Avoid TIFF

If you haven’t heard that the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival begins this Thursday, then congratulations! You have no need of the rest of this post. Many Torontonians look forward to the annual 10-day extravaganza of star-stalking, party-going, and popcorn-eating (and some really, really look forward to it). Not everybody does, though.

TIFF 2013 Survival Guide: Picking Films and Getting Tickets

The hugeness of the Toronto International Film Festival is its defining trait.

A 2013 Fan Expo Postmortem

Thursday: It Begins The show started off bumpy. Volunteers were having trouble getting into the convention. It turned out that, for some reason, there simply weren’t enough passes printed yet.

Sound Advice: I by Fresh Snow

Anaesthetics and painkillers are so omnipresent in modern medicine that it’s easy to forget how important they’ve been to the advancement of surgical science.
