Reel Talk: Contemporary World Cinema provides a global snapshot of the best cinema from around the world, with a focus on non-English-language, art-house films that may not see wide release.
Part of the fun is the surprise: titles are not announced ahead of time, and all screenings are previews of films not yet released. Each event offers thought-provoking post-film discussion led by a critic or subject expert, and you are welcome to enjoy complimentary coffee, tea, and pastries before each screening.
This season's hosts are Cameron Bailey, Artistic Director of the Toronto International Film Festival, and long-time International Programmer at TIFF, Jane Schoettle. To give you an idea of what to expect: last season's lineup included The Stopover (France), Die Beautiful (Philippines), A Date for Mad Mary (Ireland), A Man Called Ove (Sweden), Mother (Estonia), Mellow Mud (Latvia), The Candidate (Argentina/Uruguay).
