Toronto Virtual Events for April
March 31, 2021
FITC Toronto is a professional celebration of the best the world has to offer in design, digital development, media, and innovation in creative technologies – three days that unite and transform the industry.
Our event explores the future of everything innovative, technical and creative to leave you informed, challenged and inspired. With hand-picked speakers from all over the world and from a variety of backgrounds; whether you’re after a highly-focused experience, or your interests are more interdisciplinary, we’ve got you covered.
Collision online is a two-screen experience – the web app on your laptop or desktop, and a mobile app in your hand. Our conference platform unlocks a world of networking opportunities for you and your company. Connect and chat with 40,000 entrepreneurs, startups, investors and media. Hundreds of thousands of messages will be sent over the course of Collision. Create your own schedule with talks from 400+ speakers, schedule meetings and make new contacts before the event starts.
Hot Docs, North America’s largest documentary festival, offers an outstanding selection of over 200 films from Canada and around the world to a global audience this year as all movies will be available to stream online.
A great way to get out of the house and safely enjoy the outdoors is on a hike. With the flowers blooming and the sun shining, all you need to know is the best hiking trails that suit what you’re looking for.
We may still be stuck staying indoors for a while and that is for our health and safety. Thank goodness there is a bunch of new movies and tv shows that we can binge watch on Netflix in April.
Once an Anglo backwater, today’s Toronto is the cultural and economic hub of English-speaking Canada. The city’s architectural beauty is supplemented by its historical richness, with some of the buildings dating back as far as the late 18th century. This self-guided tour invites you to explore the most prominent of them, such as Gooderham, Daniel Brook Building, Massey Hall and others, making up the historic heritage of Toronto!
Toronto is an incredible architecture destination, with some of the most striking skyline additions housing the city’s museums and galleries. Dramatic modernist buildings have risen alongside stately older buildings. Architects including Norman Foster, I.M. Pei, Frank Gehry, Daniel Libeskind, Will Alsop, and Mies van der Rohe have all left their marks on Toronto’s streetscapes. Follow this tour to explore Toronto’s dramatic arts architecture.
In partnership with Unison Benevolent Fund, City Hall Live Spotlight is a weekly live-streamed concert series, as part of ShowLoveTO, to support the local music industry and provide local residents with music experiences at home during the COVID-19 pandemic.
This series will feature Toronto artists performing weekly from iconic Toronto venues and spaces. You can catch the performances live on the City Hall Live Spotlight Facebook page and on Happin.App, where you can donate and buy exclusive Spotlight merch with all proceeds going to the Unison Benevolent Fund. Backline has been provided by Yamaha Canada.
There is no word yet on if High Park will allow visitors this year to see the Cherry Blossoms but you can keep up to date and watch the beauty unfold online. With an unusually warm Spring we could see these blossoms earlier than normal.
Get ready to kick it old school and see some great movies come to the Ontario Place Drive In all throughout April. We kick it off with Blade Runner, Ferris Bueller, Casino Royale and The Goonies the first weekend in April.
