Get Feedback On Your Quickie - Raymond Helkio - MyGayToronto
Get Feedback On Your Quickie 4 April 2018.
The Toronto Feedback Film Festival returns this month with an eclectic collection of the best of LGBT Films and shorts under five minutes. The films are selected from entries all over the globe with Argentina, Israel, Sweden, Turkey, UK, USA and Canada making it into the programming. Expect to be intrigued, provoked and pleasantly surprised with the calibre of work and stick around afterwards for the best part, the feedback. With the filmmakers in attendance, the post discussion allows the audience to ask questions and provide valuable feedback about how it was received. The last time I went to one of these programs it was with a group of friends and we had a blast, both watching the films and participating in what became a lively discussion afterwards. This coming program will be moderated by Kierston Drier and it's a good idea to arrive a few minutes early to grab a beer and some popcorn before you settle in.
