Toronto Film Challenge: Closing Gala This Friday Night


Twenty completed films of the 48-Hour Toronto Film Challenge were projected at the Bloor Cinema this past Sunday. It was a wild, eclectic bag of genres and subjects, and, yes of course, varying degrees of quality and inspired creativity were on display. But as any marathoner would attest: it's getting to the finish line that matters most.

At the end, the twenty films were whittled down to the ten best, which will be competing for the big awards this Friday night for the Closing Gala at The Berkeley (315 Queen St. E). Doors open at 7pm for cocktail hour, and the awards start at 8pm.

We have a pair of tickets ($50 value) to give away. Want 'em? Simply email us: contests [at] blogto.com.
