Canadiana + Clarence Castle Hostels will act as our
base camps for the 4 days in downtown Toronto. Even though we will
attempt to view films together as a group, we want to make sure you have
the freedom to take in films that interest you. And don’t worry, there
will also be free time for you to take in the sights and sounds of
