Restaurants are sites of self-expression — spaces in which status and distinction are performed and lines between class, race, and gender are reflected and reinforced.

Contributing producers Michelle Macklem and Zoe Tennant explore how we've gone from dining in to dining out, and what dining out reveals about our identities."

Some included films:
- The Game Changers
  (Fri, Apr 27 6:00pm TIFF Bell Lightbox 1, CC, ASL for intro/Q&A | Sat, Apr 28 10:30am Isabel Bader Theatre, CC | Sat, May 5 12:45pm Hot Docs Cinema)
  Quote: "Oscar winner Louis Psihoyos (The Cove) returns with another brilliantly constructed and remarkably persuasive documentary, this time examining how we fuel our bodies. In an uncommon approach, Psihoyos avoids ethical and environmental arguments for adopting a plant-based diet. Instead, Game Changers focuses on an elite cadre of mostly male athletes to explode the myth that animal protein is required for maximum physical strength, performance and, ahem, sexual prowess. Scientists and experts join Olympians, UFC fighters, weightlifters and ultramarathoners whose switch to vegetarian and vegan diets has achieved dramatically positive results. The evidence that the single most important thing each of us can do to save the planet is to stop consuming animals is secondary to this clever appeal to vanity, virility and better health. Chris McDonald"
- Ubiquity
  (Fri, Apr 27 5:30pm TIFF Bell Lightbox 3 | Sat, Apr 28 4:00pm TIFF Bell Lightbox 1 | Sat, May 5 7:00pm TIFF Bell Lightbox 3)
  Quote: "With plans to link every digital network on the planet by 2020, connectivity will soon become ubiquitous. People will no longer commute, they'll communicate, using technology that ties us all together, anywhere and everywhere. For some people, the expanding digital network is a tightening noose of health risks associated with electromagnetic radiation. Three "electro sensitives" who endure electro-hypersensitivity in Japan, Sweden and the Netherlands share their experiences evading connectivity, running out of safe spaces and making radical life choices that cause conflict with family and friends. Are these "electro sensitives" outliers or canaries in the coal mine of our modern world, warning humanity that the wireless technologies intended to promote ease are actually causing disease? What are the long-term consequences of constant computer and cell phone use? Ubiquity is a pressing reminder that sometimes going forward requires going back and reflecting on what we have invented. Angie Driscoll"
- Won't You be My Neighbor?
  (Sat, Apr 28 6:30pm Hot Docs Cinema | Sun, Apr 29 1:00pm Hot Docs Cinema | Sun, May 6 12:45pm Hot Docs Cinema)

- The Trolley
  (Sat May 5 3:00pm Ontario Place Cinesphere)
  Quote: "This larger-than-life IMAX presentation explores the rise and fall of public transit’s most efficient electrified vehicle. Ride through 34 cities worldwide and rediscover the invention that revolutionized city life—and may be the key to a sustainable future."
- Women of the Venezuelan Chaos
  (Thu May 3 6:30pm Hart House Theatre | Fri May 4 6:00pm Scotia | Sat May 5 9:30pm TIFF Bell Lightbox)

Quote: "It may be tempting to think human civilization is on the verge of collapse: environmental degration, the rise in authoritarianism, ballooning income disparities. But Harvard psychologist and linguist Steven Pinker is having none of it. He argues that the Enlightenment has given us so much that we can hardly see it anymore: longer lifespans, safer societies, entrenching human rights. And he believes it's now time to champion Enlightenment values once again: reason, verifiablity, and the ideal of progress itself." Info: http://www.cbc.ca/radio/ideas/features/schedule

Some included films:
- The Game Changers
  (Fri, Apr 27 6:00pm TIFF Bell Lightbox 1, CC, ASL for intro/Q&A | Sat, Apr 28 10:30am Isabel Bader Theatre, CC | Sat, May 5 12:45pm Hot Docs Cinema)
  Quote: "Oscar winner Louis Psihoyos (The Cove) returns with another brilliantly constructed and remarkably persuasive documentary, this time examining how we fuel our bodies. In an uncommon approach, Psihoyos avoids ethical and environmental arguments for adopting a plant-based diet. Instead, Game Changers focuses on an elite cadre of mostly male athletes to explode the myth that animal protein is required for maximum physical strength, performance and, ahem, sexual prowess. Scientists and experts join Olympians, UFC fighters, weightlifters and ultramarathoners whose switch to vegetarian and vegan diets has achieved dramatically positive results. The evidence that the single most important thing each of us can do to save the planet is to stop consuming animals is secondary to this clever appeal to vanity, virility and better health. Chris McDonald"
- Ubiquity
  (Fri, Apr 27 5:30pm TIFF Bell Lightbox 3 | Sat, Apr 28 4:00pm TIFF Bell Lightbox 1 | Sat, May 5 7:00pm TIFF Bell Lightbox 3)
  Quote: "With plans to link every digital network on the planet by 2020, connectivity will soon become ubiquitous. People will no longer commute, they'll communicate, using technology that ties us all together, anywhere and everywhere. For some people, the expanding digital network is a tightening noose of health risks associated with electromagnetic radiation. Three "electro sensitives" who endure electro-hypersensitivity in Japan, Sweden and the Netherlands share their experiences evading connectivity, running out of safe spaces and making radical life choices that cause conflict with family and friends. Are these "electro sensitives" outliers or canaries in the coal mine of our modern world, warning humanity that the wireless technologies intended to promote ease are actually causing disease? What are the long-term consequences of constant computer and cell phone use? Ubiquity is a pressing reminder that sometimes going forward requires going back and reflecting on what we have invented. Angie Driscoll"
- Won't You be My Neighbor?
  (Sat, Apr 28 6:30pm Hot Docs Cinema | Sun, Apr 29 1:00pm Hot Docs Cinema | Sun, May 6 12:45pm Hot Docs Cinema)

Canada History August 6, Monday. Civic Holiday / Simcoe Day. Quote: "The first Monday in August is a holiday all across Ontario. But the holiday is called different things in different areas. 1968 - Toronto City Council officially called the civic holiday 'Simcoe Day' after Major-General John Graves Simcoe, who was appointed the first Lieutenant Governor of Upper Canada on September 12th, 1791. He convened the first Legislative Assembly and established York (now Toronto) as the capital of the province. One of his crowning achievements was to begin the phasing out of slavery in Upper Canada, which officially ended in 1810 - 23 years before it was abolished in the British Empire and 55 years before the Emancipation Proclamation in the United States."
