WHAT THE FILM FESTIVAL 2018
March 24th + 25th (SAVE THE DATE!)
THE LASER BLAST FILM SOCIETY is proud to present the 4th edition of the WHAT THE FILM FESTIVAL, an annual celebration of contemporary eccentric cinema. Spanning March 24th – 25th at THE ROYAL CINEMA, this year’s festival not only promises five feature films, including two WORLD PREMIERES, but will also inaugurate the WHAT THE FILM BAZAAR, a market floor for VHS tape-traders, indie comic collectors, and vendors of obscure and cult cinema.
The WHAT THE FILM BAZAAR will precede film screenings daily, and take place at THE MONARCH TAVERN (12 Clinton St.), mere steps away from the ROYAL CINEMA, and will also feature live-podcast recordings, bizarre presentations, and fun social events.
If you are interested in being a vendor at the WHAT THE FILM BAZAAR, please contact [email protected] with the word “BAZAAR VENDOR” in the subject line for more details.
The complete film lineup will be announced on February 1st, but secure your All-Access Pass today* for an early-bird rate of $30 below!
An All-Access Pass ensures you:
– Access to all five screenings at The Royal Cinema
– Access to the festival market at The Monarch Tavern
– An limited print of the festival’s 2018 poster (illustrated by Shira Haberman)
*the link to buy an early-bird pass will appear very soon, stay tuned.
WHAT THE FILM FESTIVAL fills a gap in Toronto’s dense film festival landscape, showcasing outlier and outsider films that intersect definitions of both genre and avant-garde cinema and operate outside the traditional parameters of taste and convention. It is made possible in part by the funding support from the Ontario Arts Council, an agency of the Government of Ontario.
