ATTENTION CINEMA STUDIES STUDENTS!

If you missed it last semester, you can now enjoy a rare and exclusive opportunity to go behind-the-scenes of one of Toronto's most popular cultural landmarks - The TIFF Bell Lightbox, home of the Toronto International Film Festival. On Thursday January 16th at 6:00 PM, students will be treated to a FREE, one-hour tour of the TIFF Bell Lightbox, including the Film Reference Library, the Archives, and the digital extension of the new David Cronenberg Evolution exhibition, Body/Mind/Change, in the CIBC Gallery. Don't forget to check out the BMC webpage in advance of the tour to register for, and create, your very own "pod"! Students will learn all about the architectural design of the building, the screening rooms, as well as how to conduct research at the Film Reference Library.

From 7:00 PM to 8:00 PM, the tour will continue into the Major Exhibition for David Cronenberg's Evolution (located in the HSBC Gallery on the main floor), which will be open until 10:00 PM for your viewing pleasure. Students are required to have an admission ticket to the exhibition, but CINSSU tour guests will receive a special 2-FOR-1 promotion that enables them to split the $12 individual student rate with a friend for ONLY $6. The tour guides will distribute the 2-FOR-1 promotional vouchers at the conclusion of the building tour.

The tour group will be capped at 30 people maximum and divided in half with two docents to ensure the best and most intimate experience, so reserve your spot in advance by completing the Google RSVP form at https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1vT57T604ou8EP1F0qt0pmXkBnVxqsekxRmT-20Y_iwM/viewform

All guests in attendance must meet their guides on the 4th Floor at the entrance to the Film Reference Library, where the tour will begin, at 6:00 PM SHARP.
