On Sunday evenings from June 24th through August 19th, 2018, Toronto Outdoor Picture Show (TOPS) will present a weekly programme of outdoor screenings titled “Cinematic Cities” for the 8th summer season of Christie Pits Film Festival (CPFF). This series showcases cinema that engages with cityscapes in their various and complex facets. “Cinematic Cities” will be a celebration of iconic screen cities at home and abroad. This programme also features a unique focus on the city of Toronto.
The entire shorts programme will be rooted in our hometown this summer, as a special homage to our own vibrant metropolis – highlighting the diverse people, neighbourhoods, and cultures of Toronto – and an opportunity to explore how Toronto filmmakers are exploring their realities onscreen. Join us for a journey to cities around the world – from Baltimore to Rio de Janeiro, Paris to Hong Kong – over the course of this summer!
