Cats, at the Curious Minds Festival
One wild night. Two incredible hosts. Three terrifying words: Digital Fur Technology.
Hosts Sarah Hagi and Amil Niazi held the paws of a sold out theatre, guiding them deep into this jellicle nightmare answering the important questions, like: which one of these cats deserves to die? Is Rum Tum Tugger a pickup artist or does he just like attention? Are some of these cats wearing additional fur coats?

You've Got Mail
Hosts Scaachi Koul and Nelu Handa took a sold out theatre deep into a cinematic Chat Room to discuss Meg Ryan as an anthropomorphic daisy tasked with choosing between a droning, egotistical pundit and a lying, ruthless capitalist actively working to destroy her family history and livelihood. It’s a bouquet of freshly-sharpened terrible options!

First Wives Club
Have you ever been dumped for your ex's secretary, therapist, and/or Jessie Spano from Saved By The Bell? It's time to revisit mid-'90s feminism through the lens of upper-class straight white women. Hosts Sandra Battaglini and Aisha Brown tackled the tough questions:
-Can we critique patriarchal ageism without shaming women for getting plastic surgery?
-Which day is preferable for lesbians to come out to their shitty dads: Fathers Day or Christmas morning?
-How do you remove wine stains from an all-white pantsuit?

Yippee kiyay, mother-respecters! Back by popular demand, DFF tackled DIE HARD, which itself features a great deal of tackling. This movie truly has it all: Men trying to win back their exes through grand "romantic" gestures! Witty one-liners! Incompetent police institutions! Rugged masculine charm! Vintage Snape! Exploitative and reckless news media! Explosions!
