Why Can't I be a Movie Star? D: Albert Nerenberg
Trailervision is known to be a pain in the ass for the Toronto International Film Festival. See why when you get your chance to experience Trailervision's peculiar brand of highly compressed cinema on the big screen.
This weekend at the Bloor, Trailervision launches a DVD of its feature film, a loose narrative stringing together a series of very funny slapstick movie-trailer spoofs, including J2K: Jesus 2000 ("Two thousand years ago a man died for your sins. It's payback time!") and American Booty.
Most of this material has been floating around on the Internet for a couple of years. What's new about this release is the inclusion of a mini-documentary about a clever hoax perpetrated by the Trailervision people at TIFF two years running.
It's short and scrappy, an excellent primer on how to infiltrate a festival green room using nothing more than some swanky duds, a rented limo and a handful of willing friends. A Q&A follows. (September 12, Bloor Cinema)
