Toronto Jewish Film Festival screenings

This year, the Toronto Jewish Film Festival has included 2 movies in its lineup which should be of interest to readers of this blog.

On Thursday, May 8th at 10 PM, the Bloor Cinema will be showing the documentary Will Eisner : Portrait of a Sequential Artist. To watch a trailer of the film, go to (MPG format) or (MOV format).

On Saturday, May 10th at 11:30 PM, the Bloor Cinema will be showing Wristcutters, the adaptation of the Etgar Keret graphic novel Pizzeria Kamikaze.

If you're unfamiliar with the work of Will Eisner or the graphic novel Pizzeria Kamikaze and want to familiarize yourself with them before (or after) seeing the films, I would recommend that you drop by my favorite comics shop, The Beguiling. It's a short walking distance from the Bloor Cinema, so you can buy some graphic novels to have something cool to read while waiting in line. In addition to books by Will Eisner, The Beguiling should have books about Will Eisner, e.g. Will Eisner : A Spirited Life.
