18 films over 11 days, besting last year’s count of 14. Mommy, The Imitation Game, and Wild, were my top 3, with special mentions to 1001 Grams, Elephant Song, What We Do in the Shadows, The Voices, and Force Majeure. #tiff14 was a solid year and I’m already counting down the days to #tiff15!

A fist-clenching speech from the luminous Kate Winslet with director and co-star Alan Rickman at the world premiere of this year’s TIFF closing film, A Little Chaos. #tiff14 #alittlechaos #katewinslet #alanrickman (at Princess of Wales Theatre)

Mommy is magnificent. It might have just toppled Laurence Anyways as my favourite Xavier Dolan film. #tiff14 #mommy #xavierdolan #suzanneclement (at Princess of Wales Theatre)

Calling it: Nominations for Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actress, and Best Adapted Screenplay come awards season. See you then Wild! #tiff14 #wild #jeanmarcvallee #reesewitherspoon #cherylstrayed #nickhornby #lauradern (at Roy Thomson Hall)

The cast and director of While We’re Young showed up at the second screening of the film. My favourite of the festival so far! #tiff14 #whilewereyoung #noahbaumbach #benstiller #naomiwatts #adamdriver #amandaseyfried #ryanserhant (at Roy Thomson Hall)
