We're so excited to kick off our 10th year with a special edition of TPFF's most popular summer event: TPFF Party in the Pits. We will screen our very popular closing film from the first TPFF - Slingshot Hip Hop (Directed by Jackie Salloum)
The party takes place on Friday, August 18th under the stars in Christie Pits Park. Join us for music, souk, food trucks, and fun in the park as we wait for the sun to go down (approximate screening time is 9:00 PM). This event is co- presented by Toronto Outdoor Picture Show #cpff2017
This event is free and open to the public. Check this event page for weather-related updates on the day of screening.
ABOUT Slingshot Hip-Hop:
Slingshot Hip Hop braids together the stories of young Palestinians living in Gaza, the West Bank and inside Israel as they discover Hip Hop and employ it as a tool to surmount divisions imposed by occupation and poverty. From internal checkpoints and Separation Walls to gender norms and generational differences, this is the story of young people crossing the borders that separate them.
