TIFF 2011 - day 2

Day 2 of TIFF is officially the first full day of screenings and activities.

Things got off to a bad start on the industry side though with the first press conference of the day. The new location for the press conferences on the 6th floor of the TIFF Bell Lightbox which was inconvenient because it could only be accessed by two small elevators and because its smaller, narrower room filled too easily resulting in dozens of press being turned away, a first.

Overflow press were sent to the Press Louge to watch the press conference on a single monitor.
