The best Canadian films we saw at TIFF 2019!
The best films of TIFF's Platform Competition!
That Shelf contributor Barbara Goslawski examines a stylistic trend showing up in TIFF 2019’s slate of feature films: the close-up.
The guys behind MDFF return to Double Double Land in Toronto tonight for a free screening of a pair of films from Brooklyn microbudget filmmaker Nathan Silver.
Screening for free tonight at Double Double Land in Toronto - courtesy of MDFF filmmakers Kazik Radwanski and Dan Montgomery - the French coming of age drama My Blue-Eyed Kid takes a thoughtful and nuanced look at youthful obsessions and the fall out from divorce. Also, a few words about the Canadian mid-range feature Fogo and the short Stray, both of which take place in the Maritimes and play as part of the evening's programming.
Toronto director Kazik Radwanski's Tower is a distancing look at personal neuroses and crushed dreams told almost through the lens of a cinematic dissassociative disorder, and it's every bit as electrifying and quietly unsettling as it sounds.
Enter for the chance to win one of five pairs of run-of-engagement passes to see the Toronto made Tower at The Royal starting on Friday, February 22nd courtesy of Dork Shelf and College Street Pictures.
With opening day of the 2012 Toronto International Film Festival now upon us, Dork Shelf's coverage rolls on with looks at Stories We Tell, On the Road, The Hunt, Peddlers, Tower, Lore, 90 Minutes, and Blackbird.
