today in Toronto

Today in Toronto: TIFF, New Groundswell, Yurumein, New Music 101: Bicycle Opera, Trampoline Hall

Today in Toronto TIFF continues its frenzy of celebs, parties, street fests, questionably-TIFF-related food & drink specials, and oh, some films. Roy Andersson's new one premiers tonight for its second festival showing ever - if you want tickets you'd better be standing around the Lightbox by 5PM. I've probably never been so excited about a movie.

New Groundswell Festival begins one week with PWYC productions by Nightwood Theatre, and the Music Gallery present New Music 101: Toy Piano Composers and the Bicycle Opera Project for free at the Reference Library. If you still want to see a film but you're not up to TIFF's glitz, head to the Royal for Yurumein, the "untold story of Carib/Garifuna resistance against slavery that deserves its place in the annals of the African Diaspora."
