June 19-22: Generation DIY

Generation DIY

Ron Mann and Gary Topp’s Filmswelike is presenting “Generation DIY” from June 19-22 at the Bloor Cinema. This is perhaps the biggest collection of “mumblecore” films ever screened together in Toronto and I’m seriously excited about seeing a bunch of these, some for the second time (and all for the first time on a big screen). This is a no-brainer if you want to see what’s been happening in the American indie film scene over the past few years. Here’s the jam-packed lineup:

  • Nights and Weekends (dir. Joe Swanberg and Greta Gerwig) (review)
  • Quiet City (dir. Aaron Katz) (review)
  • LOL (dir. Joe Swanberg) (review)
  • Frownland (dir. Ronald Bronstein)
  • Funny Ha Ha (dir. Andrew Bujalski) (review)
  • Dance Party USA (dir. Aaron Katz) (review)
  • Four Eyed Monsters (dir. Aron Crumley and Susan Buice)
  • A Simple Midwest Story (dir. Blake Eckard)
  • Orphans (dir. Ry Russo-Young)
  • The Guatemalan Handshake (dir. Todd Rohal) (review)
  • The Death of Indie Rock (dir. Rob Fitl)
  • Backroad Blues (dir. Blake Eckard)
  • Mutual Appreciation (dir. Andew Bujalski)

Festival passes are just $25. Even better is that the mini-fest is travelling to Winnipeg, Edmonton and Vancouver after its stop here.

  1. This looks like a great festival, I just found out about it yesterday. I really wish it wasn’t playing at the same times as ReelHeART!
