Toronto: Win Tix to See Gala Screening of “WHAT WE DO IN THE SHADOWS” at ImagineNATIVE


One of the most celebrated and diverse film festivals in Toronto is the ImagineNATIVE fest, a film and media arts festival that celebrates the film, video, radio and new media works of indigenous people. The four-day festival includes screenings of films by national and international aboriginals that speak to various cultural and social events.  

For their Gala opening on Wednesday, October 22nd at 7 p.m., the festival will screen the critically-lauded, satirical New Zealand horror comedy WHAT WE DO IN THE SHADOWS and FANGORIA has a double pass for you to be there!

Deep in the heart of Wellington, New Zealand, lies a house like many others, but within lives a group of housemates unlike any you’ve seen. Join a documentary crew as they’re given unparalleled access into the lives of a posse of vampires – the sweet Viago (Waititi), badboy Deacon (Jonathan Brugh), the lust-filled Vladislav (Clement) and the 8,000-year-old Petyr (Ben Fransham) – as they quarrel over dirty dishes, discuss fashion and hit the party circuit. When Peytr turns hipster Nick (Cori Gonzales Macuer) into a vamp, the guys must show him the ropes – and rules – of eternal life.

WHAT WE DO IN THE SHADOWS is directed by Taika Waititi, one of indigenous cinema’s most acclaimed filmmakers.
