This year, from June 27th to July 18th, ICFF will celebrate two major milestones; the tenth-anniversary edition of the Italian Contemporary Film Festival and the second edition of the Lavazza Drive-In Film Festival, organized in collaboration with CHIN Radio/TV.

The Festival, in collaboration with the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, will also maintain its special focus on Italian contemporary cinema through notable screenings in several major Canadian cities and virtual experiences offered nationwide through the ICFF digital platform.

Both festivals will take place at Ontario Place in Toronto and in several other cities throughout Canada, including Vaughan, and Montreal.

The ICFF Festival will be a hybrid of in-person and online events available to viewers all across Canada.

The festivals are presented in collaboration with the Embassy of Italy in Canada, the Consulates General of Italy in Canada and the Istituti Italiani di Cultura in Canada.

Bloor News Announces a New Feature: live music guide

Bloor News Announces a New Feature: 

Check it out for all things music in Toronto, including Open Mic listings, maps to live music venues, featured local singers/musicians and music news and reviews. 

The entertainment and writing communities were saddened to learn of the passing of Gary Webb-Procter aka ‘Gary17’, widely respected musician, critic and Editor of East York Chronicle late last year. Gary’s death didn’t just leave a hole in the hearts of his friends, family, readers and fans, it left a hole in the music scene. Gary took the spotlight off the bands we had already heard of and gave the lesser-known acts a chance to shine. Without his reviews, the Linsmore Tavern wouldn’t be a mecca for up-and-coming musicians, and we would never have heard of or from some incredible talent. The talent of the future deserves the same recognition that their predecessors gained from Gary’s pieces. Reviewing live music isn’t easy nowadays, but as vaccination rollouts continue, there is a light at the end of the tunnel. We are proud to offer our services. These are big shoes to fill, but we hope we can honour Gary’s memory by doing it justice.

Water-Skiing Light Show to Kick-Off Media Preview Day at the Toronto International Boat Show

Plus: Catch the return of Twiggy, the world-famous water-skiing squirrel; treasure hunters with ancient relics on display; stand up paddleboard racing.

Summer has come early to the city with the return of the 62nd annual Toronto International Boat Show. Media are invited to preview highlights of this year’s show, at the Enercare Centre, including new activities across the million square feet of show floor and on the world’s largest indoor lake.

The Return of Twiggy the Waterskiing Squirrel Fans around the world go ‘nuts’ for Twiggy, the world-famous water-skiing squirrel, who not only entertains with her special talent but is also an advocate for water safety. Twiggy took a brief break after years of performing across North America, appearing in movies and music videos, and becoming an internet sensation — but is returning to the 2020 Toronto Boat Show by popular demand.
