TIFF 2011 - day 5

Monday was a big documentary day with me and so was dominated by the Documentary Conference. It was very busy, but I managed to squeeze in a few other things. Not the W.E. press conference, though. I was told that no photos were allowed during the press conference, which I've never heard before. So when there was a kerfuffle that Madonna had the volunteers face the wall so that they wouldn't look at her as she walked by, I had no problem believing it. I don't believe the publicists denials since she treated the press badly too. She's a diva and doesn't seem to understand the film world.
