Onscreen/Backstage (previously the Femme Fatale x Rose Coloured Theatre Series) was curated in collaboration with Femme Fatale; a non-profit organization, founded in 2018 as a space for young femme and non-binary filmmakers to share their work on the big screen. 

Each event featured a film by an emerging filmmaker, followed by a discussion with the team.

This series was made possible with support from the Ontario Arts Council.

Upcoming Screenings

April 28th, 2022: Periphery by Sara Yacobi-Harris

Periphery is an evocative short documentary that explores ethnic diversity in the Jewish community in Canada through dance, poetry, and personal narratives. Following 10 Jews of Black/African, Korean, Iraqi, Indian, and South American ancestry, the film challenges perceptions of who is a Jew, exploring ideas of representation, intersectionality, race, and sexuality. Periphery invites us to appreciate the richness of Jewish identity and cultural expression while also illustrating what it feels like to grapple with a sense of belonging and to seek recognition within one’s own ethnic community.

Sara Yacobi-Harris (she/her) is a multidisciplinary artist, filmmaker, media professional and community organizer. Sara has been making films since 2016 with a particular interest in exploring and capturing intersectional identity and belonging using spoken word, movement and dance as forms of expression. Sara has worked at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) and CBC’s unscripted department. She holds a Masters of Education (M.Ed) in Social Justice Education from the University of Toronto.
