Some of the things that popped out to me:
- Guy Maddin: Tales from the Gimli Hospital: Reframed (Thursday September 1, 7:30 PM) features members of Sigur Ros.
- Four Tet + Jon Hopkins (Thursday September 15, 8:00 PM) Hopkins collaborated with singer-songwriter King Creosote on “Diamond Mine” which is my pick so far for album of the year and one of the most gorgeous records I have ever heard.
- Phantom Limb: 69°S.: The Shackleton Project (Friday September 23 & Saturday September 24, 8:00 PM) What can I say? I love puppetry.
- Francis and the Lights: White Room (Friday October 28 & Saturday October 29, 8:30 PM) Rare performance by the acclaimed pianist and songwriter.
- The Eternal Return: Terry Gilliam’s “12 Monkeys” (Thursday November 17, 7:30 PM) If you haven’t seen a film yet on EMPAC’s Theater screen: let me just tell you that they showed “2001” last year and it was transcendent.
Best year yet? Possible.
