Topic: Toronto After Dark Film Festival - Oct 20-24, 2006 - Thread

Hey Everyone, it’s Adam here in Toronto, working with a bunch of other film fanatics on launching next month’s Toronto After Dark Film Festival. Big thanks to Michael (Meh) for posting on us in the past and having Horror-Movies.Ca and Moviesonline.ca as our official online supporters!  It's just 38 days to go, so I thought I'd start an official thread where I can keep you all updated on the fest.

First a quick recap: we’re screening 13 kick-ass new horror, sci-fi, and fantasy films over five nights on the Big Screen in Toronto, Canada, October, 20-24, 2006. We recently announced our first seven feature film premieres.   Have a peak at them below. If you like what you see, please tell your horror and fantasy film-loving friends about us, as we’re trying to make Toronto After Dark a big fun annual event! You can get the full scoop at our website, www.torontoafterdark.com where you can also join our mailing list for festival updates.  We’ll be announcing our final slate on September 29. In the meantime, hope you like the stills and trailers to these seven:

There are some really interesting looking movies there. I wish this was a little closer.

Re: Toronto After Dark Film Festival - Oct 20-24, 2006 - Thread

Thanks Greg:  I wish Canada was a smaller place sometimes. So many fans would love to come to our event, but of course it comes down to location.

Re: Toronto After Dark Film Festival - Oct 20-24, 2006 - Thread

Yeah, I wish I could get to this one as well.  Unfortunentally, I'm to far away.  I'd go just for Behind the Mask...

Re: Toronto After Dark Film Festival - Oct 20-24, 2006 - Thread

we will try to arrnage to do plenty of coverage at the event since our sister site is a sponsor and has done alot to promote this even. Then again so have we. smile

The plan will be to head down in force, give away a shitload of dvds, pick up some babes and take over the TDot. dun dun dun.

Re: Toronto After Dark Film Festival - Oct 20-24, 2006 - Thread

Awesome.  Sounds like a good plan, wish I could come and help with my beyond belief good looks.

Re: Toronto After Dark Film Festival - Oct 20-24, 2006 - Thread

Yeah same here Vander, but if i had the time or the money I'd find a way to get up there. I'm sure it's going to be awesome.

Re: Toronto After Dark Film Festival - Oct 20-24, 2006 - Thread

I'm SO pumped up to see Behind the Mask.  I cant til' I get to see it.

Re: Toronto After Dark Film Festival - Oct 20-24, 2006 - Thread

Yeah Behind the Mask rocks - it may well get distributed next year at some point after it finishes its Festival Run. (Fingers Crossed).  There's rumours that Lions Gate have snatched it up!

Re: Toronto After Dark Film Festival - Oct 20-24, 2006 - Thread

Yea I can't wait to get a glimpse at Behind the Mask, Re-Cycle, and SL8N8.. I've really been looking forward to those movies for quite some time..

Re: Toronto After Dark Film Festival - Oct 20-24, 2006 - Thread

Thats awesome.  Thanks for the info projectionist.  I think Behind the Mask has potential to be a classic IMO.  Re-Cycle is another one I'm looking foward to as well.
