I know it seems counterintuitive, but I’ve been busy, okay? And here are the fruits of my labor.
Here’s yesterday’s episode of NOW What, in which Toronto city councillor Mike Layton and I talk about the cancellation of this year’s CNE, and what the Ex might look like when it reopens in 2021.
And here’s NOW’s brand-new streaming review digest, where I review Joey Klein’s Castle in the Ground and Shane Belcourt’s Red Rover, both of which I liked very much. It’s different from my weekly VOD roundup, mind you; that’s just a big list of releases with a physical media recommendation stuck in at the end. Both projects have value, you’ll see!
Also, here’s a look at an intriguing new short-film project, Greetings from Isolation, which challenges Canadian filmmakers to shoot something with the tech they have on hand … and has already produced some really interesting work.
And in the next day or so, I’ll have a thing about Hot Docs announcing its 2020 awards two weeks before the festival starts. No, I don’t understand it either.
Now you’re caught up. Enjoy the sunshine!
