Open Show multimedia series coming to Toronto

As Toronto gears up for a stacked arts weekend, tonight will see the launch of global event series Open Show here in Toronto at Belljar Cafe. The event, which has had wild success worldwide, brings photographers, filmmakers and multimedia producers in to interact directly with the public. Volunteer curators project image stills and short films before a period for questions and chats.

With events in San Francisco, Dubai, Detroit, London, Cairo, NYC, Havana, and our sworn rival city, Austin Texas, it's about time that Toronto launched its own Open Show. Liam Maloney (Texting Syria, Nuit Blanche) is helping put tonight's relaxed lecture together, and Nat Brunt, Chris Katsarov Luna, Laurence Butet-Roch, Thomas Dagg, and Chloe Ellingson will take part. Open Show will heat up the cozy venue tonight starting at 7pm.
