Summer Fun

5:00pm - 6:00pm

Today we started the show with an interview with Paisley Eva who is one of the founders of Dame Vinyl, an amazing organization that trains female identifying persons on vinyl DJing. They are performing this weekend at the Indian Summer Festival event: Conjuring the Future! Then we had an interview conducted by Margarita Galper of the Alt-Rock Band CIVILIANA, and we played one of their songs: Carry a Light! We followed these interviews with a review of Shakespeare in Love being put up by Bard on the Beach throughout the summer. Blind Tiger Comedy is offering free comedy courses throughout the summer for women-femme-trans people which we were sure to give a shout-out to. Another shout-out we gave was about how The National Film Board of Canada (NFB) and imagineNATIVE Film+Media Arts Festival are partnering to launch a call for Indigenous voice artists to apply for a Digital Project Prize. And last but not least, another shout-out to the documentary Because We Are Girls which is coming back to VIFF. We ended the show with an interview with Thomas Chan who is part of the ensemble of Mama Mia being produced by TUTS.
