The top 5 free events in Toronto: November 16-22 2015

The top free events in Toronto this week will have you heading to film festivals. Both the European Union Film Festival and Regent Park Film Festival offer free general admission to the public. If you want to get in on the festive spirit, the Toronto Christmas Market kicks off on Friday. Expect to find carollers, choirs, and plenty of places to window shop.

Here's what to do if you just invested in a new iPad.

European Union Film Festival (November 14-28)
The European Union Film Festival is in full swing and offering free general admission tickets to all its shows. The lineup this week includes The Enemy Within, Wild Life, and The Keeper of Lost Causes. If you want to reserve tickets early, you can opt to pay a $10 fee.

Dave Bookman's Nu Music Nite (November 17)
Shoeless Monday may have been cancelled this week at the Horseshoe, but you can still get your fill of free indie music on Tuesday. Parlour Tricks, Step Echo, Goodnight Sunrise, and Glory Glory will take the stage.

Regent Park Film Festival (November 18-21)
The Daniels Spectrum will be taken over by the Regent Park Film Festival starting on the 18th. At the event, you'll see local and international independent flicks that relate to our inner-city communities. Peppered between the films are a few workshops and discussions. See the detailed schedule here.

Toronto Christmas Market (November 20-December 20)
The European inspired Christmas market is returning to the Distillery District for another year on November 20th. If you don't have any cash to spare, get into the festive spirit by watching carollers and window shop. Go on Friday if you want to get in free, otherwise you'll be paying the $5 weekend entry fee.

North York Really Really Free Market (November 21)
Everything is up for grabs at the Really Really Free Market; no strings attached. Do some "spring cleaning" of your own and donate all your excess bits and bobs. You may stumble on a treasure or two worth way more than nothing.
