So I am a volunteer at the “Toronto After Dark Film Festival” 2018, and I have to say after seeing one “short film” called Mimic by Patrick Delvin; I’ve been sold. Not to mention just being in immersed in the atmosphere of media, press, directors, filmmakers, ACTRESSES; this is the type of place where I belong.
The feature film. ExtraCurricular, was fairly good too! I might be biased because I can see how relatable this film is (murdering people aside, it’s the symbolism) to my own life, or rather what I believe is relatable to every males life; I can definitely say that it was better than a lot of mainstream horror movies.
Next year, I am definitely going to apply for a press pass, volunteering at the festival doesn’t really give me enough time to fully immerse my self in the movies. Also, I wanted to tweet that “Mimiic” basically put me into cardiac arrest, but these film dudes, they jump on you like white on rice. In closing, I applied for Blood in the Snow, another film festival held at the “Royal Cinema” in Toronto. I’m crossing my fingers, their acronymn is BITS; haha, I find that ironic for some reason.
So tomorrow is the Indie Week Media Launch Party!
I’m super stoked, I hope that the event is really good. There”s this band, The Crooked, and I’ve been friends with JC (Guitar and Vox) Sandoval for a good while now. Although we both have been busy doing our own thing, and I didn’t get to go out and see his band as often as I did, we’re all still buds.
Check out one of their latest music videos!
It should be a fun night! (And a long one at that).

I read about all this stuff on death, suicide, abuse, and I go watch horror movies, and rock concerts, dress in a lot of black and dark colours; but I don’t have a dismal view of the world and I do believe there is a point to life.
Sex, drugs and rock n’ roll.
