My fifth and last day at the cinematic wonderland that is DIFF consisted of three documentaries. The films are very diverse - two were made by Western filmmakers and the third one is by an Iranian who was stopped from filming his latest film and this doccie was smuggled out of Iran on a flash drive hidden in a cake! I kicked off my day with Semisweet: Life in chocolate that focuses on 4 different stories about chocolate - the top chocolatier in France, a spiritual couple's chocolates fro...

Hot Docs Divvies Awards

user
Leave Them Laughing. It's the film that took the Special Jury Prize – Canadian Feature at the May 7 awards bash for Toronto's Hot Docs Canadian International Documentary Festival (April 29 to May 9, 2010). And it could be the motto for the 17th annual fest, which played to packed audiences even as business slackened at its annual market. The film, by Oscar-winning director John Zaritsky, is about laughing in the face of terminal illness. How to live despite tough odds is a challenge the d...

Princess of Nothing

Director: Karsten Pruehl.
In a modern metropolis, a young woman is living a safe life, fulfilled with entertainment and music. But when she starts to feel a threat of her pride, she is beginning to notice an alienation in this engineered world. Thus, she is searching for leadership and indeed: she finds integrety in a new kind of church. A new spirit drives her. Her world-view seams to become slightly more fulfilled, her relationships change for the better. But the man who impersonates the new belief, emerges as a coviting hypocrite. Finally she falls back into her technophilia and experiences relief in devotion to reproduced electric music.

Toronto Student Film Festival

Your Voice, Your Story, Your Impact 

Youth culture is bursting with creativity and energy, and now, more than ever, young people are exploring their world through the lens of a camera. Enrollment in media arts courses continues to grow and the proliferation of multi-media and film expression on the internet has exploded.

The Toronto Student Film Festival was created to celebrate, support and inspire our youth and their artistic expression via short film. Since its inception in 2006, the Toronto Student Film Festival has received hundreds of entries from students around the world --- a true testament to its goal of promoting youth expression through film.The TSFF aims to:

Promote student expression and artistic development of multi-media skills through film-making, on issues and topics of interest to youth and without interference.

Provide a venue for young film-makers to screen their work and interact with industry professionals.

Stimulate student confidence and innovation through official recognition of their artistic achievements.

Brazil Film Fest

4 DAYS OF BRAZILIAN MULTICULTURALISM For more than 500 years, Brazil has been melting cultures, skin colours, races, traditions, tastes, flavours, histories and everything else into a very large and welcoming pot, and this year the hottest film festival in Toronto will bring this diversity to the Royal Theatre, at the heart of the vibrant and artistic Portuguese/Italian community in the central-west side of the city. Brazil and Canada have more in common than you can imagine. They are both relatively young nations where immigration played, and still plays! -- a very important role. Did you know that Brazil has the highest population of people of African descent outside the African continent? As with the Japanese community established there; it?s the biggest outside Japan. And there was also a time when there were more people speaking Italian on the streets of São Paulo than Portuguese, the official Brazilian language. Everywhere in Toronto, you can feel, see, hear and taste this same multicultural atmosphere. You can sit in a Vietnamese restaurant in the heart of the Caribbean area, reading a European newspaper and overhearing conversations in three or four different languages at the same time, while the radio plays songs from the Middle East... And this is why we decided to have Multiculturalism as our theme for this year, in our screenings as well as the business networking we promote during the festival. So come and celebrate with us the great and diverse Brazilian new wave of cinema. It's our third year and we will love to have you with us!
