What if there were movies made the same way as suits, custom fitted, each one tailored for one person? Some of the brightest stars from Toronto's fringe film and video scene--including OCAD alumni Midi Onodera, Jubal Brown, Su Rynard and OCAD Professor Richard Fung--will show dazzling and mysterious short films, and then discuss the genesis of their projects with Mike Hoolboom, editor of the collection, Practical Dreamers: Conversations with Movie Artists (Coach House Books).
