Last weekend I had the chance to finally go to the new TIFF Lightbox Theatre here in Toronto. The past week was Canadian Music Week, and as part of the ongoing events, the festival put on a showing of AN ISLAND, a movie created by filmmaker Vincent Moon and one of my favorite bands, Efterklang.

It was such a beautiful movie. It follows the band around to different locations on an island off the Danish coast, to homes of residents, grade schools and through forests creating music with the sounds around them. The soundtrack of the film included music from their newest album, Magic Chairs.

After seeing the film, we found out that you can send a request to the filmmaker to hold a private screening. They send you a digital file of the movie and set up a time and location to hold a screening for your friends. If you get the chance before the deadline (in a week or so?), I highly recommend you contact them for a copy!
