Shannon the Movie Moxie, I am so completely impressed by your coverage of TIFF. Absolutely amazing.

Shannon the Movie Moxie said...

Thanks Suzie!

Paul said...

Yay! Thanks for putting me there!

Your coverage was grand :)

Nicole said...

Your Vlogs added to my TIFF experience because I would check your site at the end of every day, and it seems we were at many of the same showings (One Week and Secret of Moonacre -- where the picture went out in both cases -- come to mind).
I'm also pretty sure that I almost ran into you, but thought it would be weird to say "hey I know you from the internet". Maybe I'll introduce myself next year...

Shannon the Movie Moxie said...

NP Paul! I'm glad you enjoyed the coverage :)

Thanks so much for your comment Nicole, it's really cool we were at the same screenings! Feel free to say Hi, I'd be delighted to meet you!
