Upcoming Sandals-riffic Events: Face the Critic & Reel Artists Film Fest

It's a bit of a slow news day here at Unedit My Heart Central, so I thought I'd highlight a couple of upcoming events that I'll be speaking at:

1) Face the Critic - Drake Hotel - Thursday, February 25 at 7pm
The plan for this panel is for three critics—RM Vaughan, Andrea Carson and I—to show and talk about one work we loathe and one work we love. We will also prove we have faces! I'm looking forward to seeing the other critic's picks and responding to audience questions/comments/faces.

2) Canadian Art Reel Artists Film Festival - Traveling with Yoshitomo Nara - Friday, February 26 at 2:30pm
Traveling with Yoshitomo Nara is one of three free student screenings happening Friday afternoon as part of the Reel Artists Film Festival. I will introduce the flick, where I hope to make the leap beyond my typical experience of Nara's work, ie. fun products on view at Magic Pony.

Wow, that movie looks wretchedly Gravol-crunching terrible, but I really want to see it.

Hi Megan,
Yes, I agree. Even though Mr. Art Critic is quite rightfully *not* screening at the Reel Artists Film Fest, I have a desire to see it too. Maybe at an *Unreal* Artists Film Fest?
Pinchot! Can't believe it.
