The MUFF Society

A feminist community that celebrates women in film/TV.

The MUFF Society is a feminist screening series and community based in Toronto that aims to champion women in film both on and off screen. We do this through a variety of initiatives, including a short film program (miniMUFF), conversation series (Reel Girl Talk), documentary series (HER-Story), and blog.

This August MUFF’s getting nostalgic with Lesli Linka Glatter’s Now and Then, a slumber party staple about friendship, growing up, and buying a motherfucking treehouse.

The screenplay was written by Pretty Little Liars showrunner I.Marlene King. And just like Pretty Little Liars, this film is jam-packed with beautiful besties and more than a few secrets! Although bookended by the amazing Demi Moore, Rosie O'Donnell, Melanie Griffith, and Rita Wilson, the real heroes of Now and Then are their younger counterparts: Gaby Hoffmann, Christina Ricci, Thora Birch, and the late Ashleigh Aston Moore, who star as the spunky girl gang that we all wanted be! The plot may center around the girls’ attempts to raise enough money to buy their own treehouse, but the film is more about so much more: maturation, coming to terms with death, first kisses, loving your friends, and putting pudding cups in your bra! So, bring your besties and grab your tissues as we take this sweet journey back to 1970’s Indiana together. 

Join us in the lobby at 8:00 PM for photobooth fun, some slammin’ jams, and limited-edition Now and Then buttons for sale! Please hold off on the Red Rover though, we don’t think we have the insurance to cover that.

Our mini MUFF selection this month is the short film Penny's For Tea, from Vancouver filmmakers Sophie Jarvis and Kane Stewart!
