Open Roof Festival Presents an Exclusive Screening of The Fits and Eclectic Beat Junkies Grand Analog
WHAT: Toronto’s Open Roof Festival (ORF), celebrating indie film and music, is part way through its seventh season with 10 weeks of #MOVIESMUSICBEER. The screenings are on Wednesdays for the rest of the summer through to the last week of the Festival. New this year, ORF wraps with two back-to-back screenings on August 23 and August 24 during its final week.
Grand Analog is a raw collective of seasoned record collectors, musicians and self-described beat junkies. Creator and lead vocalist, Odario Williams, describes the Grand Analog sound as “a beautiful mess of Rap’n’Roll, Dub & Soul.”
Following Grand Analog’s set is an exclusive Toronto screening of The Fits, on the tail
end of critically-acclaimed premieres at both the 2015 Venice Film Festival and 2016
Sundance Film Festival. The narrative directorial debut from Anna Rose Holmer, who
was named one of Filmmaker Magazine’s “25 New Faces of Independent Film” in 2015,
The Fits paints a psychological portrait of Toni, an 11-year- old tomboy who tries to
become a part of a tight-knit dance team. Captivated by the power and confidence of this
strong community of girls, Toni eagerly absorbs routines, masters drills, and even
pierces her own ears to fit in. When a mysterious outbreak of fainting spells and violent
fits begin to plague the team, Toni’s need to belong become all the more dangerous.
