FILM | WILDsound Feedback Film Festival
Possibly the cheapest and shortest film festival this city has to offer, WILDsound Feedback Film Festival offers a showcase of short films for just $4. Taking place every last Thursday of the month from here on out, WILDsound features five short films in tonight's screening, including the Jonah D. Ansell animation Cadaver, voiced by Kathy Bates and Christopher Lloyd. Order tickets online or buy them at the door and be prepared for 2 hours of short films and an audience feedback segment following the screening.

THEATRE | InspiraTO Festival 2013
Short seems to be the theme tonight and InspiraTO brings the brevity to the stage. A ten-minute play festival that runs from today until June 8th, InspiraTO make every minute onstage count in its 28 short plays. There are five shows running on a rotating schedule throughout the festival with each containing six plays within. The 8th annual festival, this year's inspiraTO will feature a mentorship project as well as site-specific plays (check out the "White Show" on the schedule to find out how the "safari approach" applies here). Tickets are available through inspiraTOfestival.ca.

ART | Paint The Halls
A hospital becomes a battleground and the walls canvasses at Paint The Halls, an extreme art battle that takes place at Women's College Hospital tonight. A live painting competition with 75 participating artists, the exhibit will feature interactive art installations, music, dancing in operating rooms and signature cocktails. Attendees will also have the opportunity to vote on a winning artist of this art science event. Tickets will be available at PaintTheHalls.com and at the door.

ART | Quick & Dirty
Looking for affordable, original artwork? Quick & Dirty will give it to you just how you like it. Featuring the always-meticulous artists Nimit Malavia, Dave Murray and Darryl Graham, this exhibit forces the normally slow-paced painters to create original pieces in a limited time frame of 3 hours. All artworks will be available for $300 or less so sales really will be quick and dirty. Come by tonight to join in on the festivities and have a few drinks--other dirty surprises may await.
