Today marks the 10th anniversary of the Laser Blast Film Society.
For those who haven't been following the journey, the LBFS was created by a couple of Toronto cinephiles to celebrate the underappreciated and eccentric side of cinema. It began with screenings inside an indie video store before rotating around a few members' residences before settling into monthly screenings at the Royal Cinema about seven years ago. It has lied dormant during Covid, but founder filmmaker Justin Decloux has been keeping it going with intermittent 24-hour Twitch marathons (the next of which is October 16th!)
I miss those guys terribly and hope to be attending live LB events soon. Until then, check out the LB site and maybe you'll spy something to track down.
