Get your soft clothes on and post up for some serious screen time with our fall must-see suggestions.

This weekend is the Canadian Surf Film Festival (canadiansurffilmfestival.com) at Park Lane Cinemas, where local, national and international filmmakers with a yearning for the waves document their muse. It's $90 for an all-access pass (available on the website) or you can buy individual tickets through ticketpro.ca. Check page 44 for a story on rocker Matt Mays' surf movie. 

The Atlantic Filmmaker's Co-op is offering a series of film-related workshops this fall, for members and non-members. Consider the First Exposure workshop series, which includes the Film History Crash Course--- dates are available at afcoop.ca. Or how about The Guerilla Film Lab, an eight-week immersion into handcrafted, DIY filmmaking? It starts October 27 ($335 for members, $365 for non-members), and there are workshop pre-requisites which you can take earlier in the month. All the information is on the website, or call 405-4474. 

Starting tonight, Carbon Arc Cinema at the Khyber (1588 Barrington Street, khyber.ca/carbon_arc) starts a new season ---screenings every Thursday at 7pm until December, as well as screenings on most Fridays---beginning with Michael Winterbottom's The Trip. Some fall highlights include: New young director Jessica Oreck's documentary Beetle Queen Conquers Tokyo, Lars Von Trier's highly anticipated Melancholia, a double feature of two short documentaries---Andrea Dorfman's Sluts and A Summer of Dance by Stéphanie Anne Weber Biron, along with partner events such as the NFB's annual best short animation program, Get Animated, a Nocturne film installation by Dustin Harvey, a music feature with CKDU and a screening for the sci-fi and fantasy convention Hal-Con. Women in Film and TV events will continue through the fall with Eva Madden-Hagen, Jan Miller and Sylvia Hamilton.

And don't forget, Picnicface has a new TV show running for the next dozen or so weeks on The Comedy Network, every Wednesday night at 11:30pm. If the debut episodes are anything to go by, the show is like their internet videos on speed, with an added budget for bells and whistles like costumes, music and cheesy-cool effects. Miss it and you won't have any idea what people are talking about Thursday morning. (For example: Pootie party!)
