With themes ranging from the reinvigoration of democracy in the Baltic States, to music and ballet, to how a group of refugees banded together after World War II and created their own university, this year’s festival offers a stimulating mix of history and art.

Dinner and a Movie and . . . Maggots?

The first night of the festival features “dinner and a movie” at Tartu College (corner of Madison and Bloor Street West).  In a playful approach to the evening, the festival presents a film called “Journey to the Maggot Feeder” about the making of an animated film of an Intuit folk tale.  For $25, festival-goers can enjoy both the dinner and the movie for $25.  For the screening only, tickets are $10 (rush tickets).  Limited space, so get your “dinner and a movie” tickets soon!

And a special announcement about our Gala at HotDocs on Friday, Oct 16 – coming soon!
