We will also be hosting in the Palais our annual Future of Cinema Blockbuster Panel that brings together nternational voices around the table, plus a special hands-on demo of some of the most innovative works coming out of Canada, including Late Fragment a critically-acclaimed dramatic interactive feature film which premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival.
