xoTO House at TIFF
Once again this year, the City of Toronto will be showcasing the local industry during the Toronto International Film Festival at xoTO House, at 284 King St. W., from Thursday, September 6 to Sunday, September 9. The space is open to all TIFF industry delegates during the day, as well as invited guests for cocktail hour and special events.

FilmOntario is pleased to be supporting the Meeting Space at xoTO House, which will be open from noon to 5 pm from Friday through Sunday. The Meeting Space will be available for all industry delegates, as well as all FilmOntario members. If you are not planning to purchase a TIFF industry pass, but would like to use the Meeting Space, please contact me for access to xoTO House.

As part of our support for xoTO House, we also have a number of invitations available to the evening events happening while the space is open, including an opening night reception with Mayor John Tory. To be added to the invite list, please contact me by no later than 5 pm on Wednesday, August 22; note that spots on the invite list are available on a first come, first served basis.

Studio City Rentals to Operate Showline Studios
FilmOntario would like to congratulate members Studio City Rentals on being the successful proponent in the City of Toronto’s search for an operator for Showline Studios. The results of the City’s RFP process were announced in a press release from CreateTO, the City’s new real estate agency, on August 13. Showline Studios includes 32,000 square feet of studio space and in the past has hosted productions such as the Oscar-award winning Spotlight and current CBC hit Kim’s Convenience. We can’t wait to see what great shows come out of Showline next!

Work In Culture MakingItWork Survey
MakingItWork is an exciting new research project taking an in-depth look at the experiences of cultural workers, artists, and organizations (both for-profit and not-for-profit) in Ontario's arts, culture, heritage and library sectors.

With this survey, Work in Culture is aiming to get to the heart of what it's like to be an artist, a cultural worker and/or operate an organization in our broader cultural sector.

The MakingItWork survey, developed by Nordicity, is confidential and should take less than 20 minutes to complete. The survey is available in both English and French, and is accessed via this link.
