Yea I thought they were relatively small & non-proffit when I first caught wind of the festival, apparently that's not the case.Originally posted by el presidente Highsteppa
It's not as people and public friendly anymore Rob, I've seen it deteriorate since around 1997. Before I never really had much of a problem getting into the films or making contacts. It's become however a very "who do you know and what do I have to gain from it?" kind of deal.
This is unfortunately what happens when a film festival becomes the biggest right after Cannes.

I'm kind of annoyed at the festival people.. they're pretty singy. My GF was the postergirl for their campaign last year.. they sold her face (and body) on everything from t-shirts to to posters to books to mugs, and didn't give us not even one free open ticket. Also the guy who did the ad campaign for them did it for free to get exposure, and they barely put his credit anywhere.
Check out Clint Eastwood's line up for Mystic River:Originally posted by terrawrist III
just that acting force!...Will always think these 2 have the best to offer in whatever role they play because i know they take each one VERY seriously
I saw the Midnight Madness list a few days ago...it wasn't too impressive for me personally, based on what I could find out about the films. Offhand, I remember one is called Cypher with Lucy Liu, by the guy who did Cube. Another is Undead, an Australian zombie film. And Underworld, the Kate Beckinsale vampire/horror flick that is coming out in theatres anyway.Originally posted by el presidente Highsteppa
Will consider it if they don't gouge people as much as last year. I want to see what the midnight madness line up is like too.

My work is sponsoring MM and my boss said he'd take me so I'm going to go as much as I can anyway.

Again, does anyone know what the official site is with the schedules? Like I said, the google one is REALLY ghetto.
According to the site, the schedule will be up Aug. 26. All the pass books are sold out. And the box office is at College Park again...I was really hoping for the Eaton Centre (for selfish reasons).Originally posted by MoFo
Where is the schedule? How can people buy advance tix without knowing the times?
Jen, if you'd like, me and Bossypoo will be going to a Midnight Madness. Come with?
And also, are there any short films going on? ESPECIALLY Midnight Madness ones? Those are usually hardcore goodness.
