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.

MUFF TO: Death Proof

Pop-Up Shop + Photobooth: 8:00 PM

Tickets: $10!!!!!! (Get advance tickets here!)

Fair ladies and gentlemen, your chariot awaits. And it is 100% mother f*cking death proof. Join us on June 14th for a screening of Quentin Tarantino's explosive DEATH PROOF, where every seat in the theatre is death proof (we promise).

You may be wondering, "Why a Quentin Tarantino film?" Well, we have two words for you: Sally Menke. She worked with Tarantino editing every single one of his films up until her death in 2010. Tarantino often described Menke as his "only, truly genuine collaborator." Last year we celebrated another badass editor/director relationship (GOODFELLAS, edited by her majesty Thelma Schoonmaker) and it was high time we did the same for Sally. (Hi Sally!)

And you may also be wondering, "Okay, well why DEATH PROOF then?" Well, we have two more words for you: Zoë Bell. Tarantino wrote her role especially for her after being blown away by her stunt work on KILL BILL. And, damn skippy, you haven't lived until you've seen that car chase scene with her strapped to the hood of the car.

So come and celebrate Sally Menke, Zoë Bell, all the other badass women in this movie, feet, and Kurt Russell getting beat up by said badass women with us.

We normally match our short film with our feature but as this month is also Pride Month, we decided to celebrate it with our mini MUFF selection: You Say Good Morning at Midnight directed by Sarah Rotella.
