Greetings film enthusiasts!
This year is shaping up to be another exciting year for the Toronto Youth Shorts Film Festival! As this years marketing coordinator, I will try my best to come up with some creative concepts for this year’s festival campaign to best represent all you film entrepreneurs. I am extremely interested in film and the visual arts. If I hear of any events taking place throughout the city and the GTA, or think of anything that might contribute to your film aspirations, I will be sure to share them with you.
For anyone with an interest in the arts, photography and of course film, there is a free screening tonight (Tuesday, Jan. 17) at 7:00pm of Hollis Frampton’s 1971 film Nostalgia, with voiceover by Michael Snow at the Art Gallery of Ontario’s Jackman Hall. (use McCaul Street entrance) The film deals with cinematic temporality and fragility and uses still images, which burn one at a time on a hot plate. The film will be screened on original 16mm film. There is also an artist’s talk by Pierre Leguillon and Annie MacDonell, moderated by Mercer Union’s Director of Exhibitions and Publications, Sarah Robayo Sheridan.
This could be a great way to start those creative juices flowing and provide some inspiration and ideas for those taking part in this years 2012 Toronto Youth Shorts Film Festival.
For those of you who cannot make it to the city for this screening and are still interested, it is also available on YouTube.
