NXNE x Reel Asian Film Festival

Jake Shimabukuro: Life on Four Strings

Get that uke tuned up – NXNE is happy to be teaming up with Reel Asian Film Festival for the co-presentation of Jake Shimabukuro: Life on Four Strings.

The documentary gives a look into the life of a ukulele virtuoso – from upbringing to international stardom.

It makes its Canadian premiere at the Reel Asian Film Festival on Saturday, Nov. 10 at 6:30 pm at The Royal. For those interested in catching a show + learning to play the instrument, a live performance by Toronto’s Adrianne Chan conveniently follows the flick.

And what do you know? We’ve got a pair of tickets to give away – stay tuned to the NXNE Twitter for details on that.


Daylight Savings

If that’s not enough for you movie buffs, we’re also partnering with the fest for Daylight Savings (which is appropriately titled, all things considering.) The film made its premiere at SXSW and is the hit sequel to Dave Boyle’s Surrogate Valentine.

Daylight Savings shows an indie musician’s harsh breakup and the (literal) road to recovery, care of a promising rebound. The film’s leading man, San Francisco’s Goh Nakamura, will be in Toronto for the festival and has three performances lined up while in our fair town.

It screens at the Reel Asian Film Festival on Thursday, Nov. 8 at 5:40 p.m at Innis Town Hall. NXNE will be giving away a pair of passes to see the film – once again just follow us on Twitter for details.
