Local filmmakers find an audience thanks to craft beer

Bloorcourt Screen ShotThe Bloorcourt hood is about to get an injection of cinematic display and prowess. On July 15, the Bloorcourt Screen Shot will put on its first screening, sponsored by Tallboys Craft Beer House. The Screen Shot is set up to be a regular event showcasing the work of local artists, with the goal of giving filmmakers a new platform for discussion. The first film they show will be the premiere of the film Shoe Shine by Dar es Salaam-based Canadian filmmaker, Amil Shivji.

Screenings will be free to the public, but all events are 19+ due to the hoppy nature of things. There will be music by Paula Perri at 8 p.m., and the film begins at 8:30. The film's director of photography will be in attendance as well, leading a Q&A session following the film.

The Bloorcourt Screen Shot goes down at Tallboys Craft Beer House at 838 Bloor St. W. Check out full event info on their Facebook page.

Thanks for the posting Sarah, however just want to confirm that I am a Tanzanian filmmaker based in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. Hopefully that can be corrected.
