The Open Roof Festival returns for its 7th year

The Open Roof Festival returns to Toronto for summer 2016 with its seventh season of outdoor fun. The festival, which celebrates indie film and live music has announced this year's lineup, which starts June 21 and closes shop with two back-to-back screenings on August 23 and 24.

How does it work? Once a week there will be a musical performance followed by a film screening once the sun has set. Tickets are $15.
