October Movie Round Up

BUSTED! So I didn’t actually watch anything in the last week. Toronto felt like several surreal movie sets strung together by hoards of people over the weekend at Nuit Blanche by which attending left very little time or desire to see a film.  As the chill of fall accompanied the art on the street here’s a look forward to what October has to offer.

5th: GREEN SCREENS presents FORCE OF NATURE: THE DAVID SUZUKI MOVIE – NFB Mediatheque (Free Screening)

12th – 16th: Planet In Focus – The twelfth night sees the twelfth annual Environmental Film Festival kick off.  Fellow photojunkies might stand a chance of winning two all access passes by submitting your favourite Toronto city landscape with a brief description.  http://planetinfocus.org/contest/

18th: Little Terrors – Projection Booth East – 9 shorts to get the blood pumping & following with the Toronto premiere of Aussie short Axed.

19th: A WORLD OF SHORTS presents FRIGHT NIGHT – NFB Mediatheque – Ninjas was the scariest WTF movie at the CFC World of Short Festival earlier in the year. I Dare you to see it!

20th – 27th: Toronto After Dark Film Festival – Toronto Underground Cinema
The 6th wicked year of horror/sci/gore gets a little closer to hell in a new home.

21st: Reel Asian presents Night Market Hero – Innis Town Hall (Free Screening)
Missing the atmosphere from the T&T Waterfront Night Market? Looks like it’s captured on film with a crazy action story to go alongside instead of smelly tofu.

27th: Film School Confidential presents Shivers – Revue Cinema (Free Screening) – Horn inducing Canadian parasites, the perfect date movie. Is that a pierogi in your pocket or are you just pleased to see me?
