Open Roof Festival - The Lobster and Kayla Diamond
Toronto’s Open Roof Festival (ORF), celebrating indie film and music, has returned for its seventh season, kicking-off on June 21 with screenings on either Tuesday or Wednesday for 10 weeks. New this year, ORF wraps with two back-to-back screenings on August 23 and August 24 during its final week.
Kayla Diamond blends a mix of covers, mashups and original tracks, with a
show that promises to have something for fans of almost every musical
persuasion. Then, jump to a dystopian society that forms the backdrop for
The Lobster, where single people (Rachel Weisz, Colin Farrell, John C. Reilly),
according to the rules of the City, must find mates within 45 days or risk being
transformed into animals. The film was nominated for the coveted Palme d’Or
and won the prestigious Jury Prize at the Cannes Film Festival in 2015.
