Juno Awards with a week-long schedule of films about music. Each of these films will be introduced by a Juno nominee or winner, filmmaker or artist.
The screenings begin tonight at 7pm with Jonathan Demme's Neil Young: Heart of Gold presented by Juno-nominated musicians Suzie McNeil and Emm Gryner. This is followed by a screening at 9:45pm of Bruce McDonald’s This Movie is Broken presented by Stuart Berman, author of This Book Is Broken.
Other screenings in this series include the hilarious and outstanding documentary Anvil: The Story of Anvil by Sacha Gervasi, and another excellent rock documentary Rush: Beyond the Lighted Stage.
For jazz fans, you can catch Oscar Peterson: Keeping The Groove Alive which screens with the short film Begone Dull Care. Classical lovers and film lovers can look forward to the brilliant Thirty Two Short Films About Glenn Gould by François Girard, which appropriately depicts his life by mirroring the form of Bach's Goldberg Variations, the piece of music most closely associated with him.
The Juno Awards ceremony takes place Sunday March 27 and will be broadcast live by CTV from the Air Canada Centre in Toronto.
