Today is the opening day of TAAFI, the brand-spanking-newest animation festival in the world, right here in Toronto! A back injury is going to side-line me for a lot of it, but I’m taking part/moderating a couple of panels, and will do my best to let you guys know how it shapes up. That all being said, if any of you attendees would like to send me some play-by-play of your experience at the festival, we’re interested in your coverage. You can send me write-ups to email@example.com!
I know the guys behind this event have been working tirelessly to get it up and running. It’s no small effort to host an event of this scale. The opening night party is tonight, along with a gala screening of Ronal the Barbarian. The Charlie Bonifacio event is sold-out, along with the career panel I’m co-hosting with Ben McEvoy. It’s going to be a busy weekend! Best of luck to all involved, and everybody else, ENJOY!
