Sorry for the short notice, but there are two fine film festivals running this weekend, each featuring the cinema of one country.
The 2nd annual Toronto Romanian Film Festival (romaniancinemaNOW) is taking place from tonight through Sunday with screenings at the Bloor Cinema and Innis Town Hall. The programme includes a day of documentary shorts and features co-sponsored by Hot Docs. Tickets at the door are $15 for adults and $10 for students.
And if Australia is more your thing, OzFlix features a full programme of shorts and feature films and runs through Monday, with screenings at the Royal Cinema and the Royal Ontario Museum. Tickets are $10 except the opening night screening (The Black Balloon) at the Royal, which is $20, but includes admission to the opening reception at Bar Italia.
Unfortunately, I’m working on something film-related this weekend which I can’t talk about, so I won’t be able to enjoy any of these, but TSS correspondent Jay Kerr will be attending OzFlix and promises some reviews, so check back early next week.
