Shorts That Are Not Pants
Beat the heat with some shorts as the Shorts That Are Not Pants screening series returns to the Carlton in Toronto this Thursday.
Returning to the Bloor for it's first big screen appearance in Toronto since 2010, NY Export: Opus Jazz is a dazzling dance film you probably wouldn't believe was made by one of the co-directors of Catfish and the last two Paranormal Activity films and the cinematographer of Martha Marcy May Marlene working together. It's a real hidden gem and a true big screen dance experience.
Programmers for two Toronto based film festivals and series, Chris MaGee from the Shinsedai Japanese Cinema Festival (at the Revue through Sunday) and James McNally, curator of the short film series Shorts That Are Not Pants (Friday night at the Revue) talk about their co-existence in the city's landscape of cinema culture and attempt to put to rest the question asking if there's simply too much going on in the city.
