Films We Like Presents the Canadian Family Classic "HOCKEY NIGHT", new 4K Restoration - Saturday Dec 17 at the Revue Cinema, Toronto

FILMS WE LIKE PRESENTS  THE CANADIAN FAMILY CLASSIC “HOCKEY NIGHT” NEW 4K RESTORATION!

SPECIAL ENGAGEMENT at the REVUE CINEMA, TORONTO!

SATURDAY DECEMBER 17TH, 4PM
Q&A WITH ORIGINAL CAST AND CREW INCLUDING YANNICK BISSON (Actor - MURDOCH MYSTERIES), JACK BLUM (Writer) 

ENCORE SCREENINGS: 
TUESDAY DECEMBER 27 + THURSDAY DEC 29, 2017

Following its World Premiere at the Whistler Film Festival, Films We Like presents the theatrical release of the beloved 1984 Canadian family drama Hockey Night, gloriously restored to 4K from its original elements.

What's a girl to do when her family moves to a small town where “fun hasn't been invented yet” and where there is no girl’s hockey team? For Cathy Yarrow (Megan Follows, Ann of Green Gables, Rain), the answer is simple: strap on her goalie pads and try out for the boy's all-star team.

Local broadcaster Bum Johnston (Maury Chaykin) doesn't think a girl's place is in a hockey arena. Nor does lumber magnate Bill Moss (Henry Ramer), the team’s sponsor. But Cathy stands firm between the pipes, helping the team win games while winning herself loyal allies in star player Spear Kozak (Yannick Bisson, Murdoch Mysteries) and coach Willie Liepert (Rick Moranis).

Hockey Night is an uplifting and rousing story of adolescent relationships, the struggles of small-town politics and of triumph over the expectations and pressures of the adult world.

FWL presents DON'T BLINK - ROBERT FRANK - Premieres at TIFF Bell Lightbox - Aug 26, 2016

The life and work of Robert Frank—as a photographer and a filmmaker—are so intertwined that they’re one in the same, and the vast amount of territory he’s covered, from The Americans in 1958 up to the present, is intimately registered in his now formidable body of
artistic gestures.

From the early ’90s on, Frank has been making his films and videos with the brilliant editor Laura Israel, who has helped him to keep things homemade and preserve the illuminating spark of
first contact between camera and people/places.

DON'T BLINK - ROBERT FRANK is Israel’s like-minded portrait of her friend and collaborator, a lively rummage sale of images and sounds and recollected passages and unfathomable losses and friendships that leaves us a fast and fleeting imprint of the life of the Swiss-born man who reinvented himself the American way, and is still standing on ground of his own making at the age of 90.

FWL PRESENTS Kasper Collin’s I CALLED HIM MORGAN - In TIFF Docs at TIFF 2016

Films We Like is pleased to present Kasper Collin’s new documentary I Called Him Morgan at the Toronto International Film Festival as part of TIFF Docs. 

Kasper Collin’s second feature-length documentary, I Called Him Morgan looks at one of the music world’s most shocking and talked-about murders. 

On a snowy night in February 1972, celebrated jazz musician Lee Morgan was shot dead by his wife Helen during a gig at a club in New York City. The murder sent shockwaves through the jazz community, and the memory of the event still haunts those who knew the Morgans. This documentary by Swedish filmmaker Kasper Collin is a love letter to two unique personalities and the music that brought them together. A film about love, jazz and America with cinematography by Bradford Young (DOP, Selma).

KASPER COLLIN, director/ producer
Kasper Collin’s first feature-length film was My Name is Albert Ayler (2005), in which he draws a portrait of American jazz saxophonist Albert Ayler’s life. It was among the most well received theatrically released documentaries in UK and US during 2007 and 2008.
