Every May, the Toronto Film Society hosts a weekend film seminar currently held at the Carlton Cinema in downtown Toronto. Each May seminar is organized around a theme or period in film history and provides an in-depth immersion for attendees.
Every August the Toronto Film Society invades lovely Rochester, New York, to pull a series of rare films (silent and talkies) from the George Eastman House archive and sreens them at the beautiful Dryden Theatre. All films are 35mm and include features and shorts. Silent films are accompanied live on the piano by Philip Carli. This is a summer must for all film buffs!
In order to satisfy our members desire for fantastic classic and vintage films, we offer a third series of movies during the summer months. Screened over seven Monday nights during the months of July and August the films generally follow a central theme picked by the society staff. Screenings start at 7:30pm sharp.
From time to time we have special guest speakers introducing the programme or the screening of cartoons and shorts before the main features. Film notes are also provided to all viewers prior to the screening to give extra insight into the movies being seen.
