TIFF + BELL MEDIA’S CRAVE ANNOUNCE ADDITIONAL VIRTUAL CHATS AND SCREENINGS FOR STAY-AT-HOME CINEMA EXPERIENCE
TORONTO — TIFF and Bell Media’s Crave are bringing Canadians together to experience the film from the comfort of their own homes. The second and third in a series of virtual chats and screenings. Stay-at-Home Cinema will take place on Wednesday, April 1 and Friday, April 3. On Wednesday, April 1, audiences across the country can watch TIFF Artistic Director and Co-Head Cameron Bailey in a virtual Q&A with award-winning actor and director Sarah Polley before being invited to screen her 2007 award-winning film, Away from Her on Crave. In addition, on Friday, April 3 Catherine O’Hara and Bo Welch will join Cameron in a virtual Q&A to be followed by the award-winning classic, Beetlejuice on Crave. Catherine O’Hara delighted moviegoers with her portrayal of Delia, a character that lives on as a cult figure. Bo Welch is an award-winning production designer who worked on Beetlejuice, Edward Scissorhands and Men in Black. Both Stay-at-Home Cinema experiences will begin with a virtual Q&A on TIFF’s Instagram (@TIFF_NET) with the guest of honour and Cameron Bailey (7 pm to 7:20 pm EDT) via Instagram Live. At 7:30 pm EDT, audiences can view the film through Crave (app, web, on-demand) and continue the conversation on Twitter (@tiff_net) during their home screening. Additional movie titles — all available on Crave — along with special guests will be announced each week on TIFF and Crave’s social media channels. Crave recently announced that it is providing one month free for any new, direct-to-consumer subscribers with access to the internet, expanding the trial period during which Canadians can sample the service from seven to 30 days.
