As previously announced, TIFF and Bell Media’s Crave are bringing Canadians together to experience film from the comfort of their own homes. The next installments of Stay-at-Home Cinema will take place on Wednesday, April 8, Friday, April 10, and Sunday, April 12.
On Wednesday, April 8, Academy Award–nominated actor Viggo Mortensen takes over the @CraveCanada Instagram page for a virtual Q&A with TIFF Artistic Director and Co-Head Cameron Bailey. Following the chat, audiences are invited to screen Captain Fantastic on Crave.
On April 10, audiences can enjoy the multiple Academy Award–winning film Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, (Best Foreign Language Film, Best Original Music Score, Best Production Design, and Best Cinematography), with guest to be confirmed.
And on April 12, Bailey will interview director and TIFF Share Her Journey Ambassador Amma Asante before inviting audiences to screen her film Belle on Crave.
All three Stay-at-Home Cinema experiences begin with a virtual Q&A on TIFF’s Instagram (@tiff_net), featuring the guest of honour and Bailey (7pm to 7:20pm EDT) via Instagram Live. At 7:30pm 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 respective 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. For a limited time, the one-time-only offer is for first-time, direct-to-consumer subscribers, and can be accessed now on the Crave app or Crave.ca.
