National Canadian Film Day: Stay the Night

Join us for a free screening of Renuka Jeyapalan’s Stay The Night for National Canadian Film Day on April 17, 2024, at 6:30PM at the Carlton Cinema. Following the screening will be a Q&A with editor of the film, Tiffany Beaudin.

Grace (Andrea Bang) and Carter (Joe Scarpellino) are both having a rough night. Carter, a centre for the Tampa Bay Lightning, has just been told by his coach that he’s being demoted to the minor leagues, and he’s desperately hoping to get traded. Meanwhile, after being passed over for a promotion then ditched by her roommate and exiled from her apartment, Grace is forced into a night out against her will. When the two cross paths, they seem to be exactly what the other needs, and they set out on an all-night journey through downtown Toronto.

Previously presented during the 26th edition of Reel Asian, Stay the Night is a quiet and touching adventure that showcases both the beauty and the loneliness of Canada’s biggest city.

This film is co-presented by Toronto Reel Asian International Film Festival and Breakthroughs Film Festival. Thank you Ontario Creates for sponsoring this screening.
