Here are some pictures of the pick up line for TIFF this morning. I arrived at 9:30am, which was only 1/2 hr prior to them opening and I'll admit that isn't all that early. However I did not expect it to take 6 hours and 15 minutes between 2 line ups to get my tickets. There was a bit of a mix up in my order and just processing it took a long time, but the box office guy was truly lovely as we got my order sorted.
I really got a chance to chat with my fellow 'linemates' and the woman ahead of me called us. The initial pick up line took 1 1/2 hrs, and the exchange line although substancially shorter took 3 hours to get through from the back (At Yonge & Gerrard) to the box office. I kept saying to myself, and others, that my goal of the day was to leave with all 45 hard tickets. I happily can say that I did succeed. The likely sunburn and tired feet were not on my list today, but in the end it was worth it.
Upcoming tomorrow will be my finalizied list of film, including why I choose them.
