The 6th Annual Open Roof Festival Kicks-Off with a Screening of Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck
Toronto fans of indie film and music will get another chance to watch their favourite stars under the stars, as the Open Roof Festival (ORF) returns for its sixth season, running weekly from June 17 through to August 19.
The opening night of this year’s Festival starts with singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Tomi Swick, who learned to play the bagpipes, military drums, piano and guitar by the age of 13. Once the sun sets, Brett Morgan’s authorized documentary Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck will shed some light on the late Kurt Cobain’s life. Using material from Cobain’s personal archives, the documentary, which earned rave reviews coming out of its world premiere at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year, examines his music career, from his early days in Aberdeen, to his success and downfall with the grunge band Nirvana, until his untimely death.
This year, the on-site caterer, Cashew & Clive, will present a unique, accompanying menu each week— the perfect pairing for a refreshing beer from ORF’s long-standing partner Amsterdam Brewery.
