Sadly I will not be able to review either Ammonite or The Father, two of the most anticipated titles of TIFF this year. The studio, Elevation Pictures, has chosen NOT to hold press screenings for accredited media, incredibly shocking considering the festival is to celebrate film, and build awareness and buzz. I understand Elevation is passing out screeners (very few), telling me obviously some media sites matter more than others, very strange, since we all received the same accreditation.

I have been told this was not the choice of the TIFF organizers, leaving me to question why the films were even included? Why let the studio dictate who sees what?
