一年一度的多伦多电影节(TIFF),匆匆上映,匆匆下映。

今年,虽忙婚事,也忙TIFF自愿工作,我还是有办法硬抽出时间看了七部电影。

在这七部中,我的最爱是 : 善.恶.怪 (The Good, The Bad and The Weird) 。这是一部韩国西仔片,也是有史以来花费最贵的韩国电影。 以上是有英文字幕的电影预告片,可是我比较喜欢另一个没英文字幕的预告片(如下)。

这部戏真的是好看得不得了。刺激,好玩,又好笑。有很多次,我真想站起来大声欢呼尖叫。当然,我不可这么失礼,只有大力捉捉坐在旁边的Ed的手,以告诉他 ‘我很喜欢也!’ 我想,在戏院中很多观众与我同感,因我常听到有人忍不住’wow’, ‘wah’ , ‘ah ‘ 地轻呼。

戏后,导演金知云 (Kim Jee-woon) 上台让观众问问题。其中一个是,‘身为韩国导演,你为什选拍这种较冷门的西仔片呢?’ 他说:…‘because it is cool…’

他真的做到了! 这部电影真是太cool 了!

This year Toronto International Film Festival, comes and gone. Though I was very busy with TIFF volunteering work, as well as preparation for the wedding, I still managed to squeeze some times to watch seven films !

Out of these seven films, the one I loved the most, is the western movies made by a Korean director, Kim Jee-woon – The Good, The Bad and The Weird. It is also the biggest-budget Korean film ever made in the history so far. The above is its trailer with English subtitles. I also posted another trailer without subtitles (as below) which I like better.

This movie was just fantastic ! Awesome, funny, lots of adrenaline and weird ! I was so hyped up and nearly wanted to jump off the seat and shouted ‘I love this !’. Of course, I could not do this in the cinema. The only way to show my mad love to this film was to squeezed Ed’s hand tightly. Poor Ed ! 😉 I think there were many audiences felt the way because I could hear many ‘wow’, ‘wah’, ‘ahh’ in the cinema.

After the movie, there was a Q & A session with the director. Someone asked, ‘ as Korean director, what make you wanting to make a western genre movie? ‘ Kim Jee-woon answered coolly, ‘ …..because it is cool…’

And he did just that !

一年一度世界有名的多伦多电影节(TIFF)又要来了。

因去年曾参与TIFF的自愿工作,所以,今年我收到特别通知,被邀请去只限有经验的自愿工作者的第一个招收会。我知道接下来的日子空闲,早已决定参与今年的自愿工作。

招收会在Roy Thomson Hall举行。我鲜少在这一带逛,也想细心欣赏一下这座有名的演奏厅。于是,招收会当天,我提早40分钟到。还以为有点时间吃晚餐 – 街边的热狗。嘻嘻!

怎知,我一走出地下铁站已见到了长长的人龙。不用问,我已知道是要参与TIFF自愿工作的人龙。我记得多伦多人怎样为TIFF而疯狂,没想到原来自愿者也这么热情。

DAY TWO (Sept 7th, Fri)

早上六点,在闹钟还未来得及吵醒我时,我已自动醒来。朦松间,心里有点诧异 :我怎么这么疯? 在药剂行上班时也没这么早起床!

我七点钟已到达Cumberland 戏院,竟早到半个小时。有一,两个volunteers也已到了,人人都有点似醒非醒的。

今天,我是一名ACE volunteer, 即是紧急工作人员。依常规,ACE 要到自愿工作人员的休息室报到。在值班的时间,如果接到任何一个部门或戏院请求帮忙的电话,ACE 工作人员就会马上被分派到该地工作。听说,如果在值班的时间的头两,三个小时,没接到请求帮忙的电话,ACE 可以提早放工。

在还没回多伦多前,我已听说多伦多国际电影节 (TIFF)的自愿工作。那时心里想,我在墨尔本的电影节看电影看了那么多年,也只是一名观众。现在,反正,我在多伦多有空闲时间,尝试一下自愿工作该是一个新的体验。

可惜,我赶不及回来出席在七月中举办的自愿工作者招收会。幸运的是,我回到多伦多的第二天时,刚好有一个last minute 的招收会,我就出席了。

那时我才了解到原来除了戏院工作者,还有许多幕后工作的机会。 例如:营销 (marketing) ,交际联系 (communication), 机场接待员,IT 人员,等等。我其实很希望参与营销和交际联系的工作。在这个国际水准的电影节,应该会学到很多东西。可惜的是,我回来迟了,那些工作已够人手。我只好做戏院工作者,这也是他们需要大量人手的部门。

他们鼓励我们做至少四个值班 (shift) ,因为做至少四个值班的人会分派到一件自愿工作者的T衫和可以参加自愿工作者的派对。我当然不在乎这些,可也签报了四个值班。除了做戏院工作者, 我也报名做ACE, 即使紧急工作人员。例如,任何一个部门或场地不够人手,就会派ACE 去帮忙。这样,我就有机会学到不同的东西。

值得一提的是, 在每一值班完成后,每一名工作人员会拿到一张粉红色的纸票 (简称 Pink)。以这张Pink, 工作人员可以换取一张戏票 ,有时甚至两张( 如售票不太理想的电影)。以这张Pink, 工作人员也可以以 Rush 的方式换取 Gala (即首映礼)或 Press and Industry Screening 的入门票。Rush 的方式即是如果在电影放映前的十五分钟有空席的话,就可以进场。

这个Pink嘛,倒是我很在乎的。嘻嘻!有机会看多些电影很好啊!Ed总是笑我傻,怎么为了这个Pink这么高兴。一张戏票才值约二十元。即是说,我要工作六至七个小时才有二十元的酬劳。哎啊!Ed不明白。 都说是自愿工作啦。我没要酬劳。我意想不到的是,他们会给我一张戏票。我已很满足了 ! 知足就会长乐 🙂
