1. THE TRASH ON WHEELS FILM PARTY
Sept 10-26 - shows in Hamilton, St. Catharines, Ottawa, Kingston, Montreal and London!! (local info below)
Trash Palace - "Toronto's Classiest Cinema" - is proud to present THE TRASH ON WHEELS FILM PARTY – a back-to-school touring show of classroom films, cartoons and more from the files of Canada's most demented film fanatics!
Hosted by Trash Palace programmer Jonathan Culp, TRASH ON WHEELS brings a full evening of lost, forgotten and undiscovered gems from the celluloid dumpsters of our nation to your town. Armed with their trusty 16mm film projector, a trunkload of film reels from the 60s and 70s, cold drinks, and a fully stocked snack bar (including handmade vegan truffles from Boardwalk Chocolates!) Trash Palace will give you a taste of the madness that we've been dishing out at our home base for over two years.
With a constantly changing lineup of titles - partially selected by the audience via the "Trash Palace Applause-O-Meter" - every screening is a whole new ballgame. Will you see angry puppets smacking around their friends? Evil dancing cigarettes? Washed up pop stars ranting about LSD? Christian college students partying with the Virgin Mary? Animated sex ed lessons? Or masked headmasters wielding lawnmowers?
This is no stinkin' film festival - it's THE TRASH ON WHEELS FILM PARTY!
TRASH PALACE, named "the 11th best place to watch a film in Toronto" by Blog TO, shows shorts and features every Friday at their secret location. The Toronto Star writes, "It lives up to its seamy potential...the fun is pure, untainted by cynicism, high expectations or irony."
And the National Post observes,"Trash Palace's screenings promise the best in films that somebody out there was desperate to get rid of."

2. UNBELIEVABLE ARCHIVAL DVD!
GRIMSBY SECONDARY SCHOOL
1989 VIDEO YEARBOOK
20TH ANNIVERSARY EDITION
Just in time for school kiddies - and even though anyone visible in this DVD has long since graduated (I hope!!), we can all recall the dread. And now, you can SEE it as well!
This hour-long video (available for the FIRST TIME on DVD) captures the student life of Grimsby, Ontario at a remote but resonant historical moment - the 1988-89 school year.
It's the first movie I ever made, and it's still watchable, funny, and highly evocative whether you were there or not!
In gritty, unpredictable fashion, this volume delivers the stuff of yearbooks past, present and future - sports, drama, music, familiar faces, telling personal details of every sort. And then it goes further:
YOUR yearbook never had a 'smoking up at the school dance' section. Or a questionable juxtaposition of pacifist Remembrance Day speech with various students beating each other up. Or a 'people saying inexplicable things' montage. There's a surprise around every corner folks.

See you soon kiddies!
But where the hell is 'Grimsby', and is it any more obscure than 'Balgonie'. The 'Saskatchewan Perfume' used to be named 'Evening in Balgonie', and you can guess what it smelled like.
