Toronto Film Society Series and Seminars

Toronto Film Society programmes three regular series and one monthly special event each season. Below is a list of those programmes.

Sunday Matinee Series: Fall/Winter

This series, targeted at the film buffs in us all, is a series of 14 films in 7 double bills at University of Toronto’s Innis College. The screenings begin at 1:30 pm sharp, once a month from October through March.

Monday Night Series: Fall/Winter

If one series isn’t enough, TFS offers Monday film buffs, which also screens 14 films in 7 double bills at Innis College in downtown Toronto. Screenings begin at 6:30 pm sharp, once a month from October through April.

If you can’t come to all the films on either the Sunday matinee or Monday evening, we offer Pick 7, which allows you to choose 7 double bills from either of the two Fall/Winter Series.

Film notes are also provided to all viewers prior to the screening to give extra insight into the movies being seen.

Summer Series

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 follow a central theme picked by the society staff.  Screenings start at 6:30 pm sharp.

Film notes are also provided to all viewers prior to the screening to give extra insight into the movies being seen.

Kingsway Special Screenings

TFS has established a partnership with the Kingsway Theatre and our members are enjoying screenings in their beautifully renovated theatre.  Located at 3030 Bloor Street West, on the north side, west of Royal York Road, the Kingsway is easily accessible by subway, just steps from the Royal York subway stop.  Street parking is also available.

Film notes are also provided to all viewers prior to the screening to give extra insight into the movies being seen.

    Hello fine Canadian film buff neighbors. I have attended some of the Eastman weekends, through the last 15 years. I wish that I had been able to attend all of them. They were wonderful, and thanks to Caren Feldman’s encouragement, I returned when able. You have a fine group of Canadians who attend. I was at the last festival, for a specific reason. You had a wonderful line-up of mostly unavailable films, ALSO NOT SEEN ON TURNER CLASSIC MOVIES. I am hoping that when you choose, you PICK FILMS NOT ON DVD,VIDEO OR ON CABLE,(TCM). Please, when you choose, remember that for some of us American cousins, there are both the motel expense and travel expense, as well as time required to do such. But if the films were not items that are around, even some in our own libraries, there would be a strong incentive. But some of my fellow Yankees have indicated an interest if the 10 choices were all unavailable rarities. Eastman has many curios, silent and sound. I know that your staff takes much time to arrange/book such items. May someone who knows what is unseen, possibly make some suggestions? I would only suggest rare films that DO exist. Then one has to hope that they have said oddities or rarities, but they have many things that they don’t, shall we say, publicize.
