Genre Cinema From Our Canadian Ladies in Inagural Bloody Mary Film Festival!
The week after Halloween the inagural Bloody Mary Film Festival will haunt Toronto at the Carlton Cinema on November 3rd and 4th. The brand new film festival's mandate is to bring focus on our awesome Canadian women working in genre cinema.
The lineup just goes to show that there is no shortage of great short film work from female filmmakers here in Canada and over the next few years we should also see a bounty of feature films as well.
Tricia Lee's Silent Retreat returns to Toronto for another theatrical presentation. The other feature film this year is April Mullen's 88.
In amongst the short films I see shorts from ScreenAnarchy's friends Serena Whitney, Olivia Saperstien and Dre Boulet, Gigi Saul Guerrero, and Dara Jade Moats. I am looking forward to checking out all the other shorts as well.
Be sure to keep an eye out for ticket information and we can all stand in front the mirrors of the Carlton and say her name together.
The festival has yet to announce ticket information yet but you can keep tabs on them at the festival site.
It's coming! The Bloody Mary Film Festival is a screening series that will be held in Toronto, Ontario on November 3-4, 2016. Named after the legendary mirror ghost from slumber parties past, the festival seeks to spotlight the works of female-identifying Canadian filmmakers in genre films, specifically horror, sci-fi, and fantasy.DAY 1: THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 3BMFF Thursday Shorts ProgramDoors at 6:30 PM, show at 7 PMGrace (2015, 9 min, dir.
