Toronto European Union Film Festival

One of the things I enjoy most about large cities like Toronto is the variety of options, in terms of things to experience on a budget or for free. One of these events is the European Union Film Festival ( I first heard about this festival in 2010. I had missed it that year and have had performances or been away from Toronto during the festival dates over the last two years, but I'm looking toward attending some of the screenings this year. Among the ones I plan to attend are:

1) Oh Boy (Jan Ole Gerster, Germany) - Friday, November 15 at 6:30 pm

This seems like a fun film. BlogTO mentions among the top 5 films to watch out for at this year's festival: (

 Also, the date coincides with my birthday, so I've made it part of my planned birthday activities for the day (followed by dinner/drinks in the area).

2) Bajari: Gypsy Barcelona (Eva Vila, Spain)- Sunday, November 17 at 6:00 pm

This seems to be the only dance-centered film in the festival. Also, as someone who has always been interested in the politics of representation of different communities and social classes within dance, I look forward to watching this.
