There is an episode about this festival in our archives as we talk about the audience and all the great films we showcased at this event.

The theme of the August 2018 EXPERIMENTAL/DANCE/MUSIC FEEDBACK Film Festival in Toronto was “Beauty In Chaos”.

This was one of those festival that we got by with the skin of our teeth. Lots of shenanigans taking place behind the scenes where a small miscommunication between two cinema workers lead to us almost not being able to screen 3 of the programmed films.

That said, when the lights went on at 7pm, the audience got to watch 11 amazing short films and no one would have guessed that there was any issue at all. Like making a movie – there can be a lot of chaos and issues behind the scenes, but all that matters is what is shot by the camera in frame. If that is golden, then nothing else matters.

I loved this night. The films were all amazing and it was the perfect crowd in attendance to watch and talk about them.

See you at the festivals.
