However, it you want to block out the holidays for now, and defer your shopping, baking, wrapping, panic attack until another day – just head on to one of the movies Toronto has on offer! Here’s what is happening on the scene for Monday, November 26, 2012.

TIFF Bell Lightbox  continues to host  Samsara , Holy Motors ,   Chasing Ice , and Inch’Allah , with multiple screenings throughout  the day.

The Bloor Hot Docs Cinema is having a fairly quiet night, with just a single screening of the excellent documentary The Fruit Hunters from Canada’s own Yung Chang (of Up the Yangtze fame) at 9:15 pm.
