I realised that a bunch of people I’ve interviewed over the years will be at TCAF this year. TCAF is one of my all-time favourite shows, and Toronto is one of my all-time favourite places largely because it is full of some of my all-time favourite people. Even if, like me, you can’t make it this year, check out these shows from the past few years.

Hopefully this helps you connect with and discover some great creators. If I’ve missed anyone, drop me a line and I’ll get it updated.
