At 5pm this Wednesday September 19th, at the Bloor Hot Docs Cinema, we’ll lose an important part of the city’s cinema scene. The Canadian Film Centre’s monthly shorts series A World of Shorts will screen for the last time (see the full September lineup here). This is an additional blow to the news that the CFC’s annual Worldwide Short Film Festival is going on hiatus.
If you’re a fan of short film (and if you’re reading this, I’ll assume that you are), please come out to show your support for the great people behind A World of Shorts and the Worldwide Short Film Festival, all of whom have worked very hard for a very long time to build their organization into something short filmmakers and film lovers around the world admire and respect. Hopefully, this is just a temporary farewell, and we’ll have them back in some form soon.
If you were a fan of A World of Shorts, I invite you to join us on Thursday October 11th, at 7pm at the Carlton Cinemas, to share our appreciation for the art of short film. Although this will be our last screening of 2012, we have lots of things planned for 2013, and we hope you’ll come along with us as we grow.
