We talk to Alicia Fletcher, film archivist and programmer for the Silent Sundays series of silent films at The Revue, who this Sunday will screen comedies from silent film heavyweights Buster Keaton, Fatty Arbuckle, and Charlie Chaplin. We talk about her work as an archivist, the importance of music in silent films today and during initial release, and a bit about the diverging careers and films of Arbuckle and Keaton.
We take a look inside this years TIFF Kids showcase, including several of the films being screened and a look at some of the other great events for the whole family (and especially, you know, the kids) going down at the TIFF Bell Lightbox from April 9th to the 21st.
This Week in Dork is a new feature that will attempt to encapsulate all of the dorky events happening in and around Toronto every week. This week's highlights include a free Tim Burton Day at the Lightbox, a metalhead documentary, a classic monster movie and more!
