hi all,
Apologies to the list for continuing a very localized topic, but Moira, you
didn't mention the Japan Foundation library, on Bloor just east of Avenue.
Im sure you know it already, but just in case, they have oodles of films,
most on LD but viewable at the machines there - LDs are not usually
subtitled, though...
Cinematique Ontario also has a few available for viewing.
