A Little of This, a Little of That

A world without Spider-Man is quite nice, actuallyThe big deal in Toronto this week, film-festival-wise, is the Inside Out festival — but you won’t find me talking about it in this week’s NOW. Glenn and Susan tackled that while I pushed through the many discs of the Worldwide Short Film Festival for next week’s issue. (In my defense, there’s plenty of gay and lesbian content in the WSFF, too.)

Don’t worry, though — I’m still on the festival beat, with a piece this week on the Found Footage Festival, coming to the Bloor in Sunday. Watching a reel of terrible videos isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, but I find the FFF horribly fascinating.

Oh, and speaking of “horribly fascinating”, the Bloor is hosting the Canadian premiere of James Nguyen’s “Birdemic: Shock and Terror” tonight at 9:30 pm. So that’s … something.
