Toronto After Dark Film Festival announces call for submissions
Although Gordon and the Whale isn't based in the land of poutine, two of our writers are, so we would be remiss if we didn't bring to your attention the fact that the Toronto After Dark Film Festival, one of Toronto's biggest and best genre film festivals, has officially announced their call for entries.
Toronto After Dark Film Festival has just announced its 2012 Call For Film Entries. The annual genre event, which expands to a record 9 nights this October 18-26, 2012, welcomes submission of all forms of international and independent thrilling cinema including horror, sci-fi, fantasy, animation, crime, action, cult, documentary and music videos both short form and feature-length. The final deadline for this year's entries is Friday, July 20, however filmmakers are strongly encouraged to save on entry fees and submit their films before the Early Deadline of June 8. Filmmakers can enter the fest at Withoutabox.com or directly at the festival website.
The festival will apparently be taking at its original venue, the Bloor Hot Docs Cinema, which has been renovated.
I've been to Toronto twice, and it's an amazing city. Were I not already committed to attending Fantastic Fest, Toronto After Dark, which is now nine freakin' days, would see me traipsing around, enjoying the best in genre cinema as I try to quell the confusion Canadian money creates for me. Fun fact: I went to a convenience store and, after a few seconds of deliberation, just held my hand out and let the clerk take the right amount. I am truly an ignorant American.
