CONTEST: Win Passes to see SETH’S DOMINION at Hot Docs!

Seth's Dominion_Le dominion de Seth poster

The Toronto Comic Arts Festival is pleased to partner with the HOT DOCS Festival in presenting Seth’s Dominion, the award-winning Documentary on the life and work of Canadian cartoonist Seth! Directed by Luc Chamberland, and produced by The National Film Board of Canada, Seth’s Dominion has been highly-anticipated by comics fans and makers since it was first announced, and we’re thrilled to be a part of its premiere Toronto screening as part of the Hot Docs Festival.

The film will screen three times as part of the Festival: Friday April 24 @ 8:45pm at TIFF Bell Lightbox; Saturday April 25 @ 1:00pm at The Royal Cinema; Thursday April 30 @ 9:45pm at Scotiabank Theatre. Tickets are now available for all screenings, via the Hot Docs website: http://goo.gl/rJUxdj.

Here’s the description from the Hot Docs Website:

“Memory and how it moulds us rests at the heart of Luc Chamberland’s delightful film Seth’s Dominion, which celebrates the Canadian cartoonist known as Seth. “You’re not aiming for the detail so much as the overall feeling,” Seth says of his artistic process. Through moving animated vignettes that are narrated by Seth himself, the stillness of the comic book page is brought to life as we are given a window into Seth’s inner world. Childhood moments are captured with emotional vividness, while a late night stroll lost in thought is evoked with intimate attention to detail. We also learn of Seth’s manifold side projects, including his 1950s city of Dominion: an idiosyncratic cardboard creation 10 years in the making. Dotted with warm testimony from cartoonist friends Joe Matt and Chester Brown, Seth’s Dominionprovides a thoughtful portrait of a man who, like so many of his comic character creations, wrestles with a present that’s constantly moving into the past. ” – Description by Justin Mah

Win Passes to see HAPHEAD on Jan 22

haphead-poster-874x1295

Hey Toronto! There’s a new webseries by Jim Munroe and the rest of the folks behind the film “Ghosts With Shit Jobs,” launching NEXT THURSDAY, JANUARY 22ND! It’s called HAPHEAD, and if you’re in Toronto you can win passes to an exclusive screening of all 8 episodes!

ABOUT HAPHEAD

Haphead is the story of a girl who’s literally empowered by videogames.

Ten years from now, a new haptic peripheral makes videogames so immersive that people learn skills just by playing. Maxine makes less than minimum wage at the factory where they make them, so she decides to become an unofficial beta tester by stealing one for herself. At home, her favorite rabbit-ninja game gets a whole lot more punishing, with the haptic feedback loop beating lethal skills into her muscle memory. Which is good: she needs to level up quick once her employer discovers her on-the-job theft.

Luckily, she’s not alone. There are other hapheads out there, with a variety of game-trained abilities. But while some of them are kindreds, one of them brings death…

Haphead is a new webseries, but you can win one of three double-passes to an exclusive screening of the whole thing on the big screen at The Royal on Wednesday, January 22nd, at 7pm. Keep reading…
