a festival of their own

Toronto. From time to time,  my posts have mentioned the trend for smartphones to become the camera of choice for amateurs. These pocket sized marvels of technology have replaced the digital point and shoot cameras and are making inroads as video cameras too.

Back in 2012, the first “Toronto Smartphone Film Festival” (TSFF) was held. Initially the festival was for Korean film makers and held here in Toronto. Since then, the festival here has grown to become the largest in the country. The festival will go ahead this year with its 9th festival. Currently there is a call for film submissions on its web site. As a nod to the nasty COVID-19 virus, the festival dates are pending at present, but in past have fallen in the June time-frame.

Note. The title of this post is a riff on the 1992 movie “A League of Their Own” about a women’s professional league during the 2nd World War.
