On Now: Film Festivals Unite for 10 Day Streaming Event

Twenty film festivals from around the world have joined together to stream movies free on YouTube after the coronavirus pandemic shuttered movie theaters and forced the cancellation of annual events in Cannes and New York.

According to the organizers ‘Tribeca Enterprises’, the 10-day “ We Are One: A Global Film Festival ” will feature content curated by the Cannes, Sundance, Toronto and Tribeca film festivals, among others, starting on May 29th. The online event will showcase a host of films, documentaries, music, comedy and conversations

Also in film news: The organizers of the Oscars announced that films released only on streaming platforms or video on demand while movie theaters are closed due to the coronavirus pandemic would be eligible for Academy Awards next year.

The temporary change, which will apply only for the 2021 Oscars season and will lapse when movie theaters reopen across the country. The change was made by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.

Magical Moments

When we find ourselves in times of trouble music is a solace we turn to. It can uplift and relax us. The Toronto Star posts a new video each Thursday at the star.com/musicalmoments or YouTube. Pieces are no more than three minutes and each musician records at home giving us an intimate glimpse of their life off the stage.

The Toronto Symphony Orchestra has teamed up with the Toronto Star to offer an exclusive weekly Musical Moment — a new performance by one of the TSO’s musicians every week — a respite from the hard headlines and tough news we hear every day.

Some examples of these magical moments are:

  • Alastair Eng, and TSO's Cellos perform " Somewhere over the Rainbow"
  • TSO's principal violist perform the "Prelude" from J.S. Bach's Cello Suite No. 2 on his 300 year-old Viola
  • TSO's principal Clarinetist perform the first movement from "Stravinsky's Three Pieces for Solo Clarinet"

Hot Off The Press Film Review

‘Portrait of a Lady on Fire’, is a French film released in 2019 and one you might pass by because of the quirky title. But it is well worth watching. The film is set in 1760. It is beautifully filmed, each shot carefully lit and each colour considered. It reminds one of a Vermeer painting throughout. The pace is slow and thoughtful. According to Beverly, it was “entertaining to witness the drawing and painting techniques which are the thread through the film.” It can be rented from Apple TV or on Hulu. 

Artistic Ethiopian Textiles

The Arts and Culture Council highlights the story of Canadian Kathy Marshall and her website.

Sabahar is an Ethiopian company that produces uniquely designed, hand made cotton and silk textiles. In addition to scarves and shawls, they make table linens, cushions, throws and towels.

Kathy Marshall, is a twenty-year veteran of Ethiopia, who founded Sabahar in 2004 and now works as the General Manager. Her passion for preserving and celebrating the rich weaving tradition of Ethiopia combined with her desire to create respectful and ethical work opportunities for marginalized people have laid the foundation for the company.

Beverley of the ACC describes Kathy as “An amazing person and I am always thrilled to stay with her when I am in Ethiopia and to learn more about her company.”
