The 2016 line-up is as diverse as Toronto itself; expect powerful, engaging, and thought-provoking films that explore issues of the past and present. A few of this year’s highlights include League of Exotique Dancers, featuring a brilliant cast of vintage burlesque dancers; Brothers in the Kitchen, a site-specific live documentary filmed inside a fully operational restaurant, which explores the issue of refugees and resettlement through the lives of Tamil men working in Toronto’s restaurants; and Hip-Hop Evolution, in which Canadian rapper Shad travels to the Bronx and Harlem to speak with hip-hop’s originators and biggest stars.
Festival tickets are $17 (regular screening) and $22 (special events). Tickets, packages, and passes are now available for purchase.
