Toronto After Dark Film Festival

Toronto After Dark Film Festival

Yeah, I know. I should be completely film festivaled out by now, but this one looks interesting. The Toronto After Dark Film Festival features sci-fi, horror and fantasy films with a strong dose of Asian cinema. It runs from October 20-24, and I’ll miss the weekend section, but I’m definitely trying to get to the Monday screenings at the Bloor Cinema:

I’m bummed to miss the opening night film, Special, starring two of my favourite character actors. Michael Rapaport in a rare leading role, and Jack Kehler. Check out the trailer. Just the fact that the music in the trailer is “Popcorn” by Hot Butter makes me want to see it. But it looks equally funny and sad. Apparently there’s some problem with the film getting North American distribution, too, so this might be a rare opportunity to see it.
