While the bulk of our attention may be focused on the silver screen this weekend, don’t forget about all those other guys competing for notice (I’m looking at you, paintbrush). So think of the Junction Arts Festival as an alterna-TIFF. The five-day event melds classical art, community arts, and popular culture into one jam-packed sensorial extravaganza. Features include on-request poetry readings, live multimedia installations, and musical performances. For your little creative geniuses, don’t miss Whatz Up With Broccoli: A program that inspires young people to express themselves using visual arts and poetry. For more, visit junctionartsfest.com.
