TIFF KIDS 2015!!

Once again I am ecstatic to be a part of another amazing TIFF Kids! As always, it’s great seeing other kids film enthusiasts, chatting about new projects and ideas, and… SEEING ALL THE GREAT NEW FLICKS FROM AROUND THE WORLD!!! Great job Liz Muskala and her fantastic team for another great year!!

Some of my favourite flicks so far (warning I cried in all of them):

Opposite Field

Definitely one of the most moving docs I’ve ever seen!

Youssef is Complicated

Stealth

both Stealth and Youssef is Complicated are absolutely brilliant shorts that shed light on powerfully moving stories that too often go unnoticed and unheard.

 

Some films that I have tickets for and CANNOT WAIT to see!!

Antboy: Revenge of the Red Fury

because the first Antboy was soooooooo SUPER!

SHHHHHAAAAUUUNNNN TTTTHHHE SSSHHHEEEPPP … THE FEATURE FILM!! 

because I am Shaun’s absolute biggest fan!

and so SOOOOOO many more!!

TIFF Kids Jury

This spring I was selected to be one of three industry professionals to jury the TIFF Kids 2014 Jumpcuts selection. I saw some spectacular films by children in grades 4-6 and 7-8. Choosing a winner for both categories was incredibly difficult and required LOTS of deliberation between us. Overall I am amazed by the filmmaking skills of our country’s youth.
