MIFF Ticket Sales

Anecdotally, I've been noticing that the mid-week daytime ticket sales have been looking strong. Most of my screenings during business hours have been at the Forum, where the house has been very busy indeed. My analysis of sold out sessions also looks pretty strong. So far, 43 sessions have sold out compared to only 15 for the same period last year. I realise that sold out sessions don't give a complete picture, but MIFF has got to be happy with numbers like that. Apparently, last year 185,000 sessions were booked; it'll be interesting to see how that compares with the final figures for 2009.

Coincidentally, 43 sessions have sold out for the last week of the festival (tomorrow to Closing Night), which compares to 23 for the same period last year. And the number can only increase.

Are we getting more late-addition screenings too? These sessions being added to ACMI1, if we presume they will continue later into the week, it would seem like we are perhaps getting more screenings.

Does this seem to be the case?
In past, late-additions have just been on the final day/s, yeh?

Now Claire Denis isn't attending because she needs to finish her new movie in time for Venice LOL. Can it get any worse for MIFF? It seems like everything that could go wrong, has gone wrong; and not the best program to begin with.
