This year's Doors Open Toronto explores the theme of "Film: The Great Romance". I don't know of any other place in the city that loves films more than the TIFF Bell Lightbox which apparently houses a free film reference library. Who knew?! I was delighted to spot one of my favourite books there!🤩🎥📚
See the role that made Albert Finney an international star and earned him the first of five Oscar Nominations. Tom Jones (1963) is our Janus Criterion Collection premiere tonight on HS70. ⠀
French director Laurent Canet brings life to Joyce Carol Oates' classic novel Foxfire in his 2012 adaptation following a girl gang in the 1950s. It premieres tonight on HS00. ⠀
I visited Toronto recently for #Tiff#BooksOnFilm and sat down with Eleanor Watchtel at CBC...
Repost - Today on Writers & Company, Eleanor Wachtel talks to filmmaker Amma Asante about Jane Austen, growing up in a London and her latest film, United Kingdom. Head to cbc.ca/writersandcompany to listen to their full conversation.
Can't resist a pretty book. I've only finished chapter one, but the story, and Peter in particular, turn out to be way eerier than i've anticipated.
Когда увидела книгу, поняла, что не читала Питера Пена и моё впечатление о нём основывается исключительно на диснеевском мультике.
(На самом деле просто книжка была невозможно красивой и манящей, поэтому я была вынуждена забрать её с собой.)
"I don’t know if you have ever seem a map of a person’s mind. Doctors sometimes draw maps of other parts of you, and your own map can become intensely interesting, but catch them trying to draw a map of a child’s mind, which is not only confused, but keeps going round all the time. There are zigzag lines on it, just like your temperature on a card, and these are probably roads in the island; for the Neverland is always more or less and island, with astonishing splashes of colour here and there, and coral reefs and rakish-looking craft in the offing, and savages and lonely lairs, and gnomes who are mostly tailors, and caves through which a river runs, and princes with six elder brothers, and a hut fast going to decay, and one very small old lady with a hooked nose."
Want to make your Monday seem like a Friday?! We have half priced bottles of wine tonight in continuation with #booksonfilm so come in for some delicious food, or just some delicious (and cheap) wine, and we’ll help you forget about the rest of the work week! #luma#toronto#tiff#drinkspecials#halfpricedwine

W marcowym kinie Adriana Prodeus pisze o „A jak Araki” Natalii Gruenpeter @framestoframes „To co proponuje wydawnictwo Silesia Film nie ma jednak odpowiednika wśród rodzinych książek poświęconych kinu i chwała mu za odwagę promowania tak swobodnych form pisarskich.” Przypominamy, że „A jak Araki” dalej można dostać w naszych kinach i dobrych księgarniach.
