Uh-oh. It seems that today’s issues of Now Magazine and Eye Weekly have both run cover stories on the same event- the first time it’s happened in, well, three weeks. But the double-coverage on Sept. 7 coincided with the Toronto International Film Festival (see here and here). Where as TIFF is said to be the most important film festival in the world, this time the publicist’s wet dream is over… Nuit Blanche? Apparently it’s a “luminous citywide happening” or “all-night art party” (guess who said which).
Even better, Eye’s cousin, The Toronto Star (both owned by Torstar), gets taken to task in Now’s “Up Front” section. Just to keep everything nice and insular.
Also, we didn’t want to mention this- and we certainly won’t quote them- but Stillepost called this less than two weeks ago.
