Meanwhile, I enjoyed my first day of my 'between jobs' vacation time. In getting prepared for my 10th consecutive Toronto Int'l Film Festival (Sept 5-15), I have applied for media accreditation. The process is very detailed and it's quite exclusive. I realize I have a snowball's chance in hell in getting a media pass, but I had to try. For all this time that I have been going to TIFF, I have written movie reviews, and wrote about my close encounters with celebrities, and my delightful time in Toronto. I created this blog for the very purpose of one day qualifying to apply for media accreditation. But after going through the application process, I followed the instructions and submitted samples as they requested, but, I just don't know if it's good enough. The first criteria was to submit a letter from 'my editor' validating my purpose in Toronto, on company letterhead.

For the remainder of this week, I will be watching DVDs that I checked out from the library. I'm still thinking about my wonderful trip to Paris, so I find myself renting films about that city. Just the other day I watched the 2008 movie 'Paris', starring Juliet Binoche, and it was very good. It was like a darker French version of the British film 'Love, Actually'. And today, I rented 'Paris, Je T'Aime'. Along with those, I got the Irish thriller 'Five Minutes of Heaven', 'The Paperboy', and I finally got my hands on the 2012 flop 'John Carter'. I really wanted to see this movie to see for myself why it failed so badly at the box office, I think I will like it. And just yesterday, I went to the library at EMU to check out a book I've been wanting to read for a while, and I have the time now and again, the timing is perfect.
