Film Festivals in Toronto on Now

What are your feelings about seeing a movie on the big screen as opposed to watching it, say, on your iPod Touch? Well if you think it's worth going to the theatre there are two film festivals on now playing films that you could easily rent at any video rental shop. First there is the Digital Film Festival playing at ScotiaBank theatre from the 5th to the 11th, which will have classic films like The Godfather I and II, Terminator 2, The Shining, Shawshank Redemption, and more. As well, there is the Best of The Decade, art film festival being organized by Cinematheque Ontario, and being held at The AGO. Here you can find critically acclaimed foreign films that did not necessarily have a large North American release. Tickets are not full price, with the digital film festival costing $5 a show, and the art film festival costing $6.50 for students. I think it's totally worth the effort to see a film on the big screen, so check out the links if your interested:
