I’ve had a short in TIFF for three years, and typically I have gotten a ticket that specific/single screening. This year I have a feature playing at TIFF.

I live/work in Toronto and I’ve asked the producer if I he could get me a free Press and Industry Pass (typically $700).

Is this bad mojo? What do you folks think?

Usually it's the director and producer that the big passes, I've heard of the DP getting a screening pass, but festival invites usually just cover the first two or even just the director.
