FANTASIA 2018: The Final Week's Recap!

In this final week of the Fantasia film festival, I only had one free day. This meant that I had to see as many films as possible. Even though the festival is wrapping up, I hope to catch some of the other Fantasia films when they are released in the months ahead!

FANTASIA 2018: The Second Week's Recap!

My days off this week have coincided with the rain and grey weather. This makes for a great excuse to hide indoors and catch a few films at the Fantasia festival. I have made my master list of the films that I want to see this week, with the fact that I only have two days free. Here is my marathon of film viewings from week two.

FANTASIA 2018: The First Week's Recap!

It feels great to be back covering the Fantasia Film Festival for the CJLO 1690 AM team. Normally, the first week of the festival requires a light viewing as I try to balance my schedule. I also try to make a master schedule, so that I can make the final push to see what I wanted to see in the final weeks of the festival. Everyone, including CJLO DJ’s, is in my ears telling me what I need to check out. I am very happy that I got time to make it to my final Thursday screening of Under The Silver Lake. Check out the first week’s recap below!

Ontario's Progressive Conservative party secured a majority government, ending 15 years of Liberal power in the province on Thursday.

FRINGE 2018: Apocalipsync: Humanity Is a Drag

The end has come! Society as we know it has fallen apart, due to infighting from the queer left, as Peaches Lepage explains in the opening exposition. Our last hope rests on three “I-Will-Survivors,” who all have different ideas on how to overcome their current predicament: Dot Dot Dot wholeheartedly believes in the power of sustainability and that society can be restored through composting, veganism and yoga. Anaconda LaSabrosa is a self-described anarchist and wishes to destroy any remnants of the old world. Uma Gahd, on the other hand, is not taking the apocalypse well and wants to return to the way things were, when she had six gazillion followers on Instagram.
