NATIONAL CANADIAN FILM DAY SCREENING! (Free Admission)

Boya, a sexy Gothic vampire rises after 25 years of hibernation in ‘90s Toronto. Overwhelmed by his new surroundings, Boya takes refuge in an all-night diner where he forms a close relationship with a charming waitress with a secret and an offbeat cabbie who’s in too deep with the local gangsters, lead by none other than Filmmaking Icon David Cronenberg. BLOOD & DONUTS is the hilariously morbid debut feature film from accomplished Canadian director Holly Dale (DEXTER, THE AMERICANS, DURHAM COUNTY).

"If you’re looking for a very Canadian horror film, or more importantly to most, a thought provoking twist on the usual vampire fare, sink your teeth into the drippy goodness of BLOOD & DONUTS."
