Also, sure to be a hot ticket, the festival will be hosting the world premiere of I Am Big Bird: The Caroll Spinney Story.
Bloor Hot Docs Cinema
Watching the Academy Awards on the big screen at the Bloor has become a tradition. As usual, the event is free but there will also be plenty of distractions including trivia and prizes. And don't forget, the Bloor is licensed. Doors open at 6:30pm.
There is also a programme of short films to look forward to, and-somewhat bizarrely-the launch of the second season of the Irish sitcom, Moone Boy. The festival starts with the screening of the very Irish sounding film The Irish Pub. Check out the trailer below.
