Local Pals: Networking Party
From: 8:30 PM to 11:00 PM
Trinity Square Video,
all welcome. DJ, beverages, snacks.
A feisty fiesta celebrating the work and talents of Toronto-based Palestinian and Middle-Eastern artists and filmmakers, hosted at Canada's oldest media arts co-op. A chance for our communities to gather, share a beverage, get to know one other and share about new projects. At 10pm, Trinity and TPFF will together announce the winner of the inaugural Trinity/TPFF Local Pal Award, given to the best short film by an emerging Palestinian-Toronto artist, screened at this years festival -- and then we'll announce the launch of our new TPFF/LIFT Film Commission project, which will commission four new films ($10K each) in the coming year by Toronto-based Palestinian artists.
GENEROUSLY CO-PRESENTED BY:
TPFF, Vtape, Trinity Square Video, Liaison of Independent Filmmakers of Toronto (LIFT) and York University's Cinema & Media Arts (50th anniversary), A Space Gallery
