MUFF TO x Bring It On (March 16)

Oh, HEY THERE. 

I feel like in my life I have probably seen Bring It On somewhere around 90,000 times. But watching it once more with a MUFF crowd was undoubtedly the best time of them all. We knew basically right from the start that at some point we had to play Jessica Bendinger's cheerleading classic because 1) It's got Kirsten Dunst in it and I don't know if you've noticed but that's a big plus from us, 2) This movie is fucking hilarious, and 3) It 100% generates some serious feels about female friendship. I totally cried a little during this viewing.

No shame. No shame at all.

This month the MUFF crowds got to show their support with red slushies for the Toros and green slushies for the Clovers, and of course I had to abstain because to pick just one would be ABSOLUTE. MADNESS. Or maybe I should have just combo'd them. I missed my chance. 

As we do every month, we had a serious blast in the photobooth, with quotes, pom-poms and even our very own spirit stick. (MUFFian Jennifer was very adamant that nobody drop it, so to avoid the curse. Obviously.) 

  Lots of close calls there, guys. Gotta be careful.

In case you haven't been to a MUFF event yet (which I will try to not hold against you, there's always time for redemption), one thing we do every month is our program Mini MUFF, where we play a Toronto short film before each of our movies which is either written or directed by women. This month, we were super excited to play Crystal by Chell Stephen, because it was ALREADY a MUFF alumni. It played in MUFF NYC before their screening of Death Proof, which also works perfectly because the dance-happy Crystal seems like a long-lost Tarantino hero. 

Here's Kate and Jennifer Stephen, the star of the film and the hair and makeup artist, who are also both sisters to the creator, Chell:

You KNOW we had a stacked selection of raffle prizes, like we always do, if I do say so myself. Check it: 

- 3 DVDs from us (all Kirsten Dunst movies directed by women) - Bachelorette, All I Wanna Do, and Marie Antoinette 

-3 woman-created books from The Beguiling (Girls With Slingshots Vol. 2 by Danielle Corsetto, The Guild by Felicia Day, and Scooter Girl by Chynna Clugston Flores)

- A prize pack of gorgeous accessories from Coal Miner's Daughter 

-Candy and gift certificate from The Candy Bar

-10 dance class gift certificates from The Underground Dance Centre. It bears repeating that they have a class called Beginners Beyonce. Too good. 

-Pair of tickets to Toronto Silent Film Fest opening night film WHY BE GOOD? which we are co-presenting! 

To show my appreciation and eternal love for all of you MUFF-lovers, here's Lisa and I just doing whatever this is:
