?Just wondering if anyone of you Torontonians have a good source for 16mm daylight spools.?
LIFT. We have a store selling everything you need for making films on film at artist-based rates.
To clarify is a late night Toronto inventory missing many collectives, venues and organizations:
Production on film (and post on all formats) at LIFT, on video at Trinity Square Video or Charles Street Video (all artist-run centres);
Lab at Niagara, Exclusive, Deluxe, Technicolor or handprocess at LIFT;
Transfer at Frames Discrete, Exclusive, LIFT, Deluxe or Technicolor (choice is based on format and what you're looking to do);
16mm Opticals with Ray Cook;
Presentation through Images Festival, Cinematheque Ontario, Pleasure Dome, Loop Collective, Inside/Out Festival, imaginNATIVE Festival, Toronto Animated Image Society, Wavelengths at TIFF, Reel Asian Festival, Rendezvous with Madness, 8-Fest, HotDocs and dozens of others;
Some venues for DIY travelers CineCycle (possibly the world's only full format micro-cinema and bike repair shop), Gladstone Hotel, Revue Cinema and others (contact the folks in the programming section for ideas).
Distribution is Canadian Filmmakers Distribution Centre (CFMDC) (film and video) and V Tape (video).
Other places of interest could be the LABO (a media arts centre for Francophone artists) and Interaccess (electronics and new media).
Another Toronto resource to check out is John Porter's website: "http://www.super8porter.ca/".
Lots I missed. It's a busy city to say the least. It's also looking at the visual arts centres in town as most program media-art (not the commercial galleries or institutions). You can always find more contacts and info at the national media arts umbrella website: imma.ca or at the Ontario Artist-Run centre equivalent if you're more installation or visual-arts oriented: http://www.arcco.ca/
Sorry to all I forgot, it's been a busy day and night.
"It is a society, and not a technique, which has made the cinema like this. It could have been historical examinations, theory, essay, memoirs. It could have been the film I am making at this moment." - Guy Debord

Hi all -
Just wondering if anyone of you Torontonians have a good source for 16mm daylight spools.
