Programming for the Festival since:
The Lord of the Rings trilogy
The Princess Bride
Your favourite Festival programmer who is not you:
Jane Schoettle—great taste in and out of the cinema.
What do you do for the rest of the year when you aren’t programming for the Festival?
Work at TIFF Bell Lightbox on all the programming for children, youth and families, including the TIFF Kids International Film Festival each April.
Too much work and not enough time!
