Surprisingly, or not so surprising, depending on how much you’ve been reading my day-to-day Toronto-related posts, my schedule for this year’s 2013 Toronto Film Festival has changed quite a bit since I posted that preliminary schedule about two weeks ago.
For starters, The Fifth Estate will no longer be my first screening of the fest as I hear it’s not yet completed with some temp music still in place at this time, but they’re hoping to have it completed and ready in the 9:30 PM slot on the opening day. Either way, it will still play, but there just might be a disclaimer before it does. I must admit, they push these things to the wire, but thankfully it’s nothing to do with the editing, just some last minute touches.
The great thing about the change means I now get to see Don Jon, which I otherwise would have had to miss. If you also remember, I was going to have to miss Kill Your Darlings on the opening day, but fortunately it screened here in Seattle early so I’ll be able to bring a review to you shortly.
In addition to that I was also able to see Rush before heading off to the festival, which opened up September 6th for me a bit and I’ll now be able to see Ralph Fiennes‘ The Invisible Woman followed by Xavier Dolan‘s psychological thriller Tom at the Farm.
I have also had to pull the trigger and decided to see The Railway Man instead of Parkland considering the latter already has a distributor and release date and I won’t be seeing Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom unless the Weinsteins hook me up with a ticket for the Gala screening.
I was able to score a ticket to the late night screening of Dom Hemingway, which opened up more time in my schedule, but does pack my September 8th with five films.
You’ll also notice a few gaps here and there where I might be able to fit a few other screenings in, and I’ll update this post with my complete schedule as the festival goes on, including adding links to my reviews as they post.

The 38th Toronto International Film Festival runs from September 5 to 15, 2013 and I will be there through the 13th.
