    Toronto International Film Festival Question? I’ve never been to TIFF before, but it has always intrigued me. I looked at the lineup for midnight madness, they all look like solid flicks, I’ve even been anticipating the release of a couple of them for quite some time. I was wondering how midnight madness works, is it a marathon, is it 10 days of midnight releases, what is it? Thank you.

    • Curator says:

      It’s 10 nights of midnight screenings.
      Which is tough on people that have to be up for work in the morning, but oh so worth it.

      Since you’ve never been to the TIFF before, here’s some handy info about Midnight Madness:

      “Tickets to screenings for this programme will be available for individual purchase as well as through the Midnight Madness Pack, which includes all 10 screenings for $156, or $100 for students and seniors. Purchase Festival ticket packages online 24 hours a day at tiff.net/festival, by phone Monday to Friday from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. ET at 416.599.TIFF or 1.888.599.8433, or visit the box office in person from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. ET at TIFF Bell Lightbox.”

    Do You Know How To Get Tickets To The Toronto International Film Festival ? I really want to go.

    1) How to get tickets
    2) Do u stay in tents like a music festival or would u have to sort out your own acclamation. If so what type of accommodation is available near the festival

    Thanks. Never been to a film festival before. So excited.

    • Curator says:

      You can buy tickets online now, or at the box office just before and during the festival. Accommodations are entirely up to you. There are many hotels in downtown Toronto within walking distance of the festival venues.

    Why Is Natalie Portman So Hysterical About Taking Out Syria? The “humanitarian hawks of Hollywood” are at it again and this time their target is Syria. Natalie Portman ranting about “President Bashar al-Assad’s ongoing brutal attack on the citizens of his own country” and posting a picture on Facebook with a note that says, “Unite For Syria. Stop One Year of Bloodshed.” Portman’s hysteria has been followed by singers Annie Lennox and Nelly Furtado, as well actress, Susan Sarandon.

    What separates Natalie Portman (real name: Natalie Hershlag) from the other “humanitarian hawks of Hollywood” is that she is Jewish, “Israeli”-born, with a strong Zionist identity, the daughter of an illegal settler from occupied al-Quds and is very much connected to the Jewish kinship networks of international Zionism. Syria of course, is a major adversary of the Jewish supremacist entity which has long sought to overthrow the Bashar al-Assad government and colonize Syrian land as part of “Greater Israel.”

    A fluent speaker of Hebrew, Portman is very much attached to the usurping Jewish entity, once stating, “I really love the states, but my heart’s in Jerusalem. That’s where I feel at home.” And also, “Anytime anything happens to anyone there, it’s like a limb’s been ripped off. I’m very protective of Israel, obviously, but I’m more protective of humanity than of any of my own personal desires .” This, as it will be demonstrated by the evidence, is a blatant and purposeful falsehood; the only humans that Portman cares about are those of Jewish origin.

    It is typical of the mentality of the Judaic supremacist to feel coziness on land that they, their parents and/or their ancestors criminally usurped from the indigenous people. And speaking of usurpation, the Zionist actress also studied for 6 months at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem , an institution very much tied to the ethnic cleansing of the Palestinian people during the (ongoing) Nakba. From May 1948 to February 1949, Jewish National Library and Hebrew University Library officials entered the West al-Quds homes of Palestinians driven out or massacred by Zionist terrorist forces and stole 30,000 books, newspapers and manuscripts, half of the total number of written works stolen by the Jewish occupiers in the aftermath of Plan . Assuredly, Portman, who went to the occupation school to“learn more about the situation there ,” learned nothing of this terrible and tragical crime against humanity.

    Nor would she want to know about it even if it was presented to her for Natalie Portman is a Zionist, through and through, lock, stock and barrel. She has starred in an “Israeli” propaganda film called “Free Zone”, centered around the ugly Jewish paradigmatic concept of “Palestinian terrorism” and has visited “Israeli victims” in Zionist occupation hospitals hurt by Palestinian Resistance responses to the Zionist entity’s aggression.

    True to her tribalism, when 1,000 actors, directors and academics raised their voices against the 2009 Toronto International Film Festival for being “complicit in the ‘Israeli’ propaganda machine” and slamming the usurping Zionist dragon as an “apartheid state,” Portman was right there to affirm her support for “Israel,” becoming a signatory to a counter-protest in defense of the Jewish “state (9).” She did say that she was very protective of the genocidal entity.

    During her studies at Harvard, Portman displayed her “protectiveness” again by lashing out with absurdity at a fellow student who rightly condemned the Zionist regime for the crime of “apartheid,” as well as its egregious racism. Her warped argument is as follows, “This {the aforesaid student’s observation of Zionist apartheid} is a distortion of the fact that most Israelis and Palestinians are indistinguishable physically.
    The Israeli government itself is comprised of a great number of Sephardic Jews, many of whom originate from Arab countries.” Stunning would not be an accurate enough term for the level of massive stupidity that this represents. This shouldn’t be so surprising however, as Portman also staunchly believes the age-old, monstrously moronic Zionist myth that “Israel,” where she says her “insides refuse to abandon”, is the place “where deserts bloom.”
    Someone should’ve told Portman then and someone should still tell her now that a similarity in physical characteristics is utterly and pathetically irrelevant. “Indistinguishable physicality” doesn’t change the fact that Zionist Jews have been illegally colonizing Palestine since 1881; that Zionist Jews have established at least 30 racist, discriminatory laws that deprive Palestinians of their basic human rights; that Zionist Jews have based the entireties of “Israeli culture” and “Israeli identity” on the theft of the traits from the indigenous Arab peoples that they colonized, mass murdered and usurped, from food to folklore and that while the Zionist regime practices apartheid, amongst other crimes, it is something far, far worse and far, far sinister.

      Why are you so hysterical about Natalie Portman. Should she be tried and jailed for war crimes. Should we get someone to finish what Hitler started to end the “Jewish Problem” once and for all. If you are so in love with Hamas why not go and help them shoot some more rockets into Israel.

    PIANISTS, What Are Your Youtube Accounts?!? Hi, I’m making a short film and I’d like some nice piano music for the ending credits. Preferably a song similar to this one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uGFuTYz60KI
    Right now, we are in the pre-production stage and I need your piano song for the credits ONLY. I have the rest of the music figured out. If you could send me your youtube account(s) with you playing your own composed song on the piano, I will consider it for my movie. I will be submitting to many film festivals including the Barrie Film Festival, Toronto Film Festival, Canadian International Film Festival and possibly Sundance Film Festival and Cannes Film Festival. I will give you complete credit for your song if it is chosen.
    Thank-you very much.

    Is Going To Toronto During TIFF A Bad Idea? Obviously, i do not want to go to enjoy the Toronto international film festival. I want to go for other reasons. would it be a bad idea to go during TIFF?

    • Curator says:

      No, It’s a great time to visit Toronto!
      Most of the TIFF traffic is in Yorkville and around the Bell Lightbox.

      As long as you’re not traveling for a quiet afternoon in Yorkville you’ll be fine.
