Every year, York University’s Faculty of Fine Arts Film Program hosts an event called Cineseige where the best of the year’s films produced by York students are showcased. Amongst the nominees are a few Toronto Youth Shorts selections, including Emily Powell’s A Slice of Life, Trevor Chartrand’s Bad Movie, Earl Oliveros’ Loss Together and Luise Docherty’s Breaking Over Me, which won an Audience Choice award and the Festival Director’s merit of recognition award for strong acting. Cineseige takes place on Tuesday, October 23 at the TIFF Bell Lightbox.
Our Youth Emerging Artist Award winner, Ostrichcized, by Ben Brook will be playing at the Huntsville International Film Festival on Saturday, September 22.
Jessica Adams (winner of the Cinematography award for Uprooted) produced a short called Life Doesn’t Frighten Me that will be showcased as part of TIFF’s Short Cuts Canada Program #2. It’s already played today and will replay tomorrow (Sunday) morning at 9am in the TIFF Bell Lightbox.
Tune into Rogers TV from September 10-23 to see some of our award winners on TV. Kelly Paoli, writer of Breaking Over Me, will join myself on Daytime Toronto this Wednesday morning to talk about the film and the festival. It airs on Rogers TV at 10am and repeats at 3pm.
