HALLOWEEN | Fort York After Dark Lantern Tour
If unusual but interesting sounds like your kind of Halloween, scrap the slutty cat costumes and clubs and take a lantern lit tour through Fort York. Running tonight through Saturday, the tours will take visitors from the legendary haunted lighthouse to the site of the Battle of York during the War of 1812 with stops at two military graveyards, like Victoria Memorial Square, the oldest European burial ground in Toronto, in between. Pre-registration is required and the tours are not recommended for children under 8 years old.
Fort York National Historic Site (250 Fort York Boulevard) 7:30PM $12.50
PHOTOGRAPHY | Distillery District Photo Safari with Blurb
Online photo publishing platform Blurb invites photogs out to the Distillery District this afternoon to be guided around the neighbourhood by documentary photographer Dan Milnor. Dubbed a photo safari, this three-hour session will offer advice on lighting, composition and timing from Milnor, whose work is in collections at The Los Angeles County Museum of Art and The George Eastman House. The group will meet at the security booth at north end of Trinity Square and will regroup after the session for drinks and appetizers at Café Uno (42 Gristmill Lane) at 6PM. Registration is required through eventbrite.
Distillery District (9 Trinity Street) 3PM Free
FILM | Witness Within
With the 3-day Rebels With A Cause Film Festival now underway, an evening of documentary short films highlighting social injustices and community intervention embodies what the festival is about. The Witness Within program features six films that range in topics from unjust interrogation to tenant rights to the G20 arrests, all taking place in Toronto. As with all of the RWAC films, the screening is free as is the panel discussion to follow, which will feature documentary filmmakers Owen Sheppard, Aliyyah Fazil, and Amar Wala. The festival closes October 25th.
