Event: The MUFF Society Presents: Buffy The Vampire Slayer
Date: February 8, 2017
Time: Pop Up Shop + Photo booth at 8:00 PM // Film at 9:00 PM
Location: Toronto, ON, Canada
Organizer(s): The MUFF Society
This February, MUFF celebrates Women In Horror Month once again with a trip back to highschool: the classes, the crushes, the cheerleading, the…. vampires? That’s right—BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER.
Before Sarah Michelle Gellar brought Buffy to life on the small screen, Kristy Swanson was kicking butt on the big screen—directed by Fran Rubel Kuzui—in this 1992 classic. Oh, and BUFFY was Hilary Swank’s first film, too!
So, make sure your chicken is funky, your goose is loose, and your stake is pointy, because you’re in for one hell of a ride! Join us in the lobby starting at 8:00 PM for photobooth fun, a vampy playlist, and a vendor pop-up of Toronto women artisans ready to show you what they’ve got! As always, we will have some amazing prizes to give away before the screening, so don’t be late!
Our Mini MUFF selection this month, OLIVIA, comes from local filmmaker and animator Laura Vegys. Laura will be in attendance to introduce this WORLD PREMIERE screening!
Our pop up shop will feature:
Kim with Cursed4Life
Marla with Gloom Matter
Sara with Sara’s Soaps & Candles
Elize with Elize Frances Art
Richelle & Emily with ‘Slices’ Zine

ABOUT THE MUFF SOCIETY:
The MUFF Society is a feminist film series that is based in Toronto, but has seen monthly screenings in New York City and San Francisco as well. We aim to champion women in film both on and off screen by programming films that have awesome female characters and/or have powerhouse female players behind the scenes: female directors, female writers, female editors, etc. We are also an online community which aims to keep conversations about women in film flowing and which supports and promotes other film events and initiatives which are focused on women in film.
