OFFA, Fantasia, and Sail-In Cinema

(Via PRNewswire) Sail-In Cinema is back, and don’t worry, you don’t even need a boat. On August 18th through 20th, “the world’s first two-sided floating movie experience of its size” will appear on a barge in Lake Ontario, thanks to PortsToronto and partners. TO dwellers can watch from the water or from Sugar Beach, and it’s free. This year’s theme is Books to Big Screen, with the three films to be chosen by the public starting next month.

(Via Wireservice.ca) The Willson Oakville Film Festival, June 24-26 in Oakville, ON, has announced its lineup.
