The official box is #9 for the Advance lottery for TIFF'08. There were a total of 78 boxes this year. I'm so excited, my order is in Box 10! After the line up I endured last year of 6 hr and 15 min this feels like sweet justice. I am so thrilled to be close to the beginning of the line. I hope you all did well! Pics and vid will be added later today.
To toggle your memory, last year the box selected was 66 and there were 75 boxes total.
Now it's a waiting game. The orders will be processed over the weekend and you will get an email once you package is processed. Last year you were also able to see your order online in the box office site once it was processed, just in case you don't get an email.
You can pick up your processed orders Monday Sept 1/08 (yes, that is Labour Day) at 10am at the Yonge & Dundas box office. People line up early, this is the longest one of the year. I know I've said this before but I'll reiterate that if you gotten all or most of your selections I would not recommend going Monday morning - there are so many people there!
