Sean Kelly

TIFF11: tiff♥r excellent scheduling tool.

The 2011 edition of the Toronto International Film Festival is only a week away and I have been working hard to come up with a film list in time for the sale of single tickets on Saturday morning.

As such, I thought that I would take the time to sing the praises of a tool that helped me create my schedule both this year and last.

tiff♥r is a website that allows you to create a shortlist of films directly from the TIFF website (using a bookmarklet you save onto your bookmarks bar).  These films are then placed on a schedule grid, where you can select the screenings you want to attend.

I don't know what I would do without this tool, since not only can I use the site to choose my main picks, but I can also see screenings at the same time that I use as alternates.  It's definitely worth checking out if you haven't already.
