Los Angeles premieres!
Director Ashley McKenzie in person!

Over the past half-decade, Canadian independent filmmaking has experienced a resurgence. Working outside traditional funding channels, a constellation of new directors from across the country have emerged with unique styles and sensibilities, distinct in their regional specificities while standing firmly at the vanguard of new cinematic storytelling possibilities.

Two of the most notable names to have arisen from this movement, Toronto's Kazik Radwanski and Nova Scotia's Ashley McKenzie, have each recently produced films that have earned an uncommon amount of international attention. Upon its premiere at TIFF, Radwanski's second feature, How Heavy This Hammer, a modest portrait of a Bulgarian immigrant who one day decides to leave his wife and explore the frontiers of middle-age dating and single-parent living, instantly solidified the filmmaker as this new generation's most gifted and empathetic curator of everyday domestic travails.

No less attuned to the subtle gradations of the human condition, McKenzie, with her feature debut Werewolfa vividly realized romantic tragedy following two young addicts living on the margins of New Waterford that has picked up numerous awards as its traveled across North America and Europehas announced herself as an equally uncompromising chronicler of emotional and psychological trauma. Together the work of these two young directors speaks not only to the exciting developments in Canadian independent filmmaking, but to the breadth of contemporary cinematic invention as a whole.
