Poll: https://www.imdb.com/poll/araJeqBEqes/

What do films like La La Land, Moonlight, Arrival, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, Ladybird, and The Shape of Water have in common besides being Oscar Best Picture nominees? They were all launched at the Toronto International Film Festival, one of the most important events of the awards season, which is generally considered to start with the kick-off of TIFF. This year, TIFF opens on the 6th of September and with it, the anticipation of fresh, exciting films. Which of the TIFF "Gala" films do you most hope to be able to see in the coming months?

Ruby,

Since the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) is an annual event and this poll suggestion only includes 2018 films that appear at TIFF, you may wish to change the title from:
TIFF Gala Movie You Most Want to See?

To:
TIFF 2018 Gala Movie You Most Want to See?
or
2018 TIFF Gala Movie You Most Want to See?

This would allow for a future poll regarding TIFF films.

- - -

It is common practice in technical writing to define an acronym or initialism in place when it first occurs. You may wish to change this portion of a sentence from:
They were all launched at the Toronto International Film Festival, ...

To:
They were all launched at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF), ...

- - -

Minor typo for 3: First Man (2018). There is a missing space before a parenthesis. Please change:
Ryan Gosling and Claire Foy star in Damien Chazelle's('LaLaLand', 'Whiplash') depiction of the life of the first human to walk on the moon, Neil Armstrong.

To:
Ryan Gosling and Claire Foy star in Damien Chazelle's ('LaLaLand', 'Whiplash') depiction of the life of the first human to walk on the moon, Neil Armstrong.

The poll is still under construction but I probably would not have thought to add 2018, nor would I have caught the typo, probably, so thanks.

There are also several inconsistencies that I'll always standardize.

I think I'm going to bring my students into my polls and, when I make a poll this semester, ask them to write the introductions, then workshop them in class until they're as good as possible. I figure they deserve something fun since they're only first years and they're going to be reading, and writing about, Foucault. : ) 
I might also have them proofread my polls under the guise of training their eyes for editing, lol.

Ruby,

That sound intriguing, a class of copy editors for one or more polls.

Is your class on French philosophy or literature?

Neither, actually. It's an English composition course but the text, to which they will respond with a lot of writing, is quite challenging but also really wonderfully diverse and includes essays by authors from John Berger (visual art / feminism/ culture studies) to Michael Pollan (food culture / agriculture and ethics) to Foucault. 'Poor kids, lol. I think IMDb polls will be fun for them.
