In 2016, the 24th Rendezvous With Madness will present 50+ films in 20+ programs over 10 days at four venues including our new main cinema Jackman Hall at the Art Gallery of Ontario! Rendezvous also features a day long FORUM entitled GAME/CHANGE with discussions about the upsides and challenges of video games and screen culture.
