Filmport's Off Camera Art Exhibit

Over fifty artists in the Toronto film industry from costumer makers to scenic painters have gathered to present an exhibit of their 'off camera' creations to share with the public at the newly opened Filmport Studios.

The various mediums will surprise from the traditional painting, drawing, sculpture, and photography, to unique methods of screen printing, collage, film making, textiles, music, multi media assemblage and more.
The event will feature a silent auction, musical performances and a film screening.

We can see why Toronto film production is known for such a high calibre of work when you see this exhibit.

The Off Camera Group is organized by volunteers from the film workers community represented by IATSE local 873 and The DGC Ontario.

Runs October 3rd through 18th, 225 Commisioners St. Stage #7

Kick off your 2008 Toronto International Film Festival experience at the Bata Shoe Museum with a special exhibition of some of the lavish costumes and set pieces from the film El Greco, which is premiering at this year’s festival.

From the Set to the Screen: El Greco is a behind- the -scenes look at many of the costumes and set pieces used in the making of this film.

Costumed designed by Lala Huete and art directed by Damianos Zarifs and Oriol Puig, the sumptuous costumes and detailed props bring to life the story of the 16th century Greek artist and freedom fighter Domenicos Theotokopoulos, otherwise known as El Greco.

Running September 4th to 14th, 2008
