Filmmaker Don McKellar discussing The Red Violin via Skype
On the morning of April 23, 2012, over 450 students arrived at Bloor Collegiate Institute to find a front foyer dressed up to the nines with glossy student-designed film festival posters, salty popcorn popping, and a poem being read aloud by author and Bloor CI student, Amane Abdurhman.

The students had arrived to see HOW SHE MOVE and were in for a real treat; a live Q&A with actors Kevin Duhaney, Daniel Morrison, and Dwain Murphy! After the Feature Film, the Q&A, and a plethora of student paparazzi pictures with Kevin, Daniel, and Dwain, the students were ushered out of the auditorium for lunch and stopped in the foyer once more to watch Bloor CI's very own dance troupe perform! This was followed by an impromptu dance-off between Daniel Morrison and a Bloor CI student. The match ended in a draw and everyone dispersed for lunch.

When Grade 11 and 12 students returned to take their seats for The RED VIOLIN in the afternoon, they were met with a live, Violin Concerto performed by their peers! The RED VIOLIN sparked a lively Skype discussion with writer, actor, and filmmaker Don McKellar. The day ended on a very high note with Cineplex Ticket Giveaways to three lucky students. Special thanks to Ms. Evans, Sandy Macintyre, and the dedicated student volunteers from Bloor CI for all of their great work!
