As the Crow Flies
Directed by Tess Girard

We adore this doc about a group of wannabe Royal Canadian Air Cadets who are soaring for their wings. They’re just seventeen, if you know what we mean, but the way they dream is just beyond compare. Director Girard has transformed what might be a […]

Porcupine Lake
By Ingrid Veninger

Festival darling, Ingrid Veninger returns to us with her reliably strong work, this time a coming-of-age story that pulls you right into its central drama.

A Better Man
Directed by Attiya Khan, Lawrence Jackman

When the festival programmers keep talking about a film long after we’ve watched it we know we have to share it. A Better Man will get you talking. It’s a bold documentary that situates the filmmaker herself at the centre. Motivated by a need […]

Wexford Plaza
Directed by Joyce Wong

Another 2017 Slamdance entry, this unconventional feature by Toronto-based Joyce Wong charmed the festival programmers for its deft handling of its subject—a painfully awkward encounter between a security guard and the guy who serves the drinks at the bar at a shopping plaza. This is Scarborough, Ontario, […]
