Free Guy Maddin Film Series Next Week

Sorry for the short notice, but just found out about this today (hat tip to my friend Judy Gombita). The University of Toronto is holding a weeklong series of events entitled, “Confession and the Cinema of Uninhibition” featuring films, lectures and a roundtable discussion of the work of Winnipeg filmmaker Guy Maddin, who will be in attendance at all events. Here’s the schedule:
