There’s an old saying that all film journalists are just frustrated filmmakers who couldn’t break into the business. And while I certainly think directing a film would be an awesome experience, to be totally honest, I’d rather have Colin Geddes‘ job. If you’re a horror nut like me, and love Midnight Movies and the Toronto International Film Festival, Geddes is the guy you’re going to want to get acquainted with. Having held the job for over a decade, Geddes has helped bring films like Martyrs and Hostel to appreciative festival audiences. As he prepares for yet another TIFF (you can keep up to speed with the event by checking out the official Midnight Madness blog — where you’ll find interviews, details about the films, and more … ), Mr. Geddes was kind enough to take time out of his busy schedule to chat with us about what it’s like to program for one of the greatest film festivals in the world.
