We can't actually tell you which movie this still is from, because its identity is a secret until it screens at the Hidden Film Festival.

When was the last time you went to the movies without knowing what was on? Probably never.

Indeed, these days, because of the power and reach of multimillion-dollar movie promotion campaigns, you’re lucky if you don’t know the plot from start to finish before you get comfy in your theatre seat.

The Hidden Film Festival, coming to Toronto on July 27, turns convention on its head by asking audience members not only to come see a movie without knowing anything about it in advance, but also to become critics by tweeting, blogging, and telling the world at large about what they’ve seen. With screenings in Dublin, Paris, London, and Toronto during July, it’s hoped that the daring, experimental nature of the festival will attract attention to largely unseen flicks.
