As a special TIFF edition of The Seventh Art Live Directors Series, we screened Don McKellar‘s classic Toronto film, Last Night, in honour of its 15th anniversary. The end-of-the-world dramedy was accompanied by a live commentary from McKellar himself. The event was hosted at our gallery space (OCADU’s Graduate Gallery) and allowed for an intimate atmosphere which featured audience interaction and very candid stories about the film’s production ranging from hilarious to touching. The screening was followed by a brief reception where McKellar had a chance to mingle with his fans over beers.
The live screening was preceded by an hour-long video interview we shot with McKellar discussing his entire career. Watch for that interview to be released in a future issue of The Seventh Art.
