Calling all film buffs! Toronto’s historic Distillery District will host the Lavazza IncluCity Festival this summer and will be transformed into a giant open-air cinema village under the stars.

The festival, which was held last summer as a drive-in event at Ontario Place, will migrate over to the historic district for 20 days of programming this June and July.

“Outdoor theatres and patios will line Distillery’s Trinity Street and a new innovative theatre space will offer a magical vantage point for festival goers,” the description says.

“The festival will showcase heartwarming films, captivating installations, visual art exhibits, panel discussions, gourmet tastings, and live performances – creating a unique cinematic experience.”

Some venues will have comfy couch seating and large digital screens for an upgraded experience.

The programming for this year’s festival will be a mix of Canadian and international short and feature-length films, with a special focus on diversity and Italian representation.

The goal of the festival is to showcase the “dynamism and richness of Canada’s multicultural society” through film in the gorgeous setting of Toronto’s Distillery District.

Early bird movie packages go on sale on April 20 and general admission tickets go on sale on May 26, the same day that the full festival lineup is announced.
