We’d love you to come to our party! Raise a glass to a sneak preview of the short film Postcards from my Balcony.

April 22nd, 7:30- 8:45pm

Watch the film – all 10 ½ minutes – and tickle your ears with live music from special guests Deanna H. Choi and John Millard (what joy), artful conversation, and jokes (likely not artful).

Travelling, sneezing, writing and tweezing – Postcards from my Balcony follows blind writer Alex Bulmer as she returns from the UK to Canada while a pandemic erupts. She writes postcards under quarantine – little big thoughts sent out to the world. 

We suggest, if you have them, bring your best headphones.

Hosted by Richard Chan and Alexandra Simpson 

With Kesta Graham and Alex Bulmer

Screening Room 2 hosted by Becky Gold (access features)
