What We Do in the Shadows

Contest: Win a Free HighballTV Membership!

If you’ve followed That Shelf over the years, then you’ll know that we’re huge film festival fans. We’re lucky enough to be headquartered in Toronto – one of the most vibrant film cities on the planet – where the annual Toronto International Film Festival brings some of the best movies from around the world to our doorstep every year, but we also cover other major global film fests like Cannes, Sundance, Venice, New York, and Whistler.

You can always count on us to bring you reviews and interviews from these festivals, but what we can’t do is bring you the actual movies… until now. We’re teaming up with our friends from HighballTV (who were kind enough to sponsor our TIFF 2019 coverage) to bring festival cinema to you, that is, we want to give you the chance to win a FREE one-year subscription to the film festival streaming service. You’ll find some amazing films on HighballTV – great movies you absolutely will not find on Netflix – curated from some of the top film festivals around the world. You can start your 7-day FREE trial now and start watching on pretty much any device!

Contest details below!

Here’s the official HighballTV elevator pitch:

HighballTV makes it possible for you to bring film festival cinema to every screen in your life. We are actual, real-life humans who track down exquisite films for you from major festivals like Sundance, Cannes, TIFF, and Venice, and we hand-curate them in fresh and innovative ways, so we can constantly bring you fascinating films you’ll love. We missed that feeling of a video store and the in-person relationship shared by cinephiles, so we encourage our community to comment on films, and the film-curators and film-makers get in on the conversation with you. You’ll also find the kind of behind-the-scenes and Q&A special features that make you feel like you’re at the festival. We’re proudly algorithm-free, because we believe in the essential humanity of film. HighballTV is a community of film-lovers, and we’d love for you to join us.
