We're having a TIFF!

The rumours are all true.

Automatic Vaudeville Studios is going to the Toronto International Film Festival, which runs September 8th through the 17th.

I imagine many questions will be running through your mind right now... Will The Recommendations be the Opening Night Gala or the Closing Night Gala? Will the Schandkollektief be performing LIVE at the late night screening of Schandfilm?

Let me put your mind at ease. Automatic Vaudeville has opted not to screen any of its wares at the festival, as we do not want the other invited filmmakers to feel inadequate, like their life's work has been effortlessly trumped by those "koo-koo kids from Montreal." It happens all the time - people have a look at our work and they start sobbing, uncontrollably. Which is unfortunate, because much of our work is comedic in tone, and what we're really looking for there is laughter.


We are going to the Toronto International Film Festival. Why? Because we love cinema. Because we were raised there, which means we can probably get a load of laundry done on the cheap. Because, in a strange turn of events, we will be reporting from TIFF's red carpets and exclusive parties for a sinister cabal of boutique hotels and television networks.

So look for us there! We'll give you a DVD and an awkwardly long hug. And if you're lucky, we'll go see a movie with you and get to some hot n' heavy making out.

Check here for exciting updates, and see you at the festival!

Your friend in entertainment,
Automatic Vaudeville Studios

P.S. Here's a picture of us so you know what we look like.
