Enter for a chance to win one of three copies of the Canadian made documentary Skull World on DVD, courtesy of Dork Shelf and Unstable Ground.
This weekend brings a pair of documentaries about strange forms of notoriety to the Carlton Cinema in Toronto: Slaughter Nick for President and Skull World. Both films are hilarious and inspiring looks at people who love what they do and deeply appreciate the efforts of those around them. One of them just happens to be a down on his luck actor who finds out that a character he played on a crappy TV show has become a folk hero overseas, and the other is a Clutch loving metalhead who uses his creative side to create all out cardboard carnage.
We talk to filmmaker Justin McConnell about following around his buddy Greg Sommer, creator of the battle-tastic Box Wars for his documentary, Skull World, opening in Toronto this weekend.
No DVD column this week, but we'll return with it next week. Instead, we take a look at a whopping FIVE film festivals kicking off in Toronto this week: the 7th annual Canadian Film Fest, the Canadian Music Week Film Fest, Water Docs, the 13th annual aluCine Latin Film Festival, and Creepy Christian Cinema.
