JUNE 5 TO 10 Movies don’t have to be epic to get their point across. The CFC Worldwide Short Film Festival demonstrates this fact with nearly 250 thought-provoking abbreviated-run-time films from more than 35 countries. Each 90-minute screening session features anywhere from five to 22 flicks, including some with big names attached—Pitch Black Heist starring Michael Fassbender, for example, or the animated Kali the Little Vampire, narrated by Christopher Plummer. Also this year, the CN Tower hosts a day-long Towering Shorts series, where viewers can watch movies with the Toronto skyline as a backdrop. Various venues, $10 per screening.
