If you hear an explosion, without a doubt it’s from the Liberty Village area!
I just had the best Chicken Pesto Flatbread and Goat Cheese Salad with Marj, at No Regrets lounge… My favorite café in the area… Thank god my break was not long enough; otherwise, I would have gone for the second order!
If you are in the area, don’t miss on them or you will regret it!

- Half Moon Directed by Bahman Ghobadi
- Mainline Directed by Rakhshan Bani-Etemad & Mohsen Abdolvahab

The dates are yet to be announced… Hopefully will get to see few of them… Especially #3, from my favorite directors.
Will be sharing more soon… Till then, bon soir!
It’s finally here! The full list of films screening at the 2006 Toronto International Film Festival is now online. Limited passes and coupons are on sale until tomorrow, Aug 25, 2006.
