FilmSocial is a collective of Toronto-based cultural critics, workers, organizers, educators and activists sponsored by the SP’s Cultural Committee.

We aim to contribute to the cultural Left within and beyond Toronto by bringing together community members for screenings, interpretations and discussions of the politics of popular films.

Venue: select locations

Time: 7:30pm-11:00pm.
