Director John Cameron Mitchell and stars from his film Shortbus were at the 2006 Toronto International Film Festival. During a press conference for the film they discussed how the sexual dramedy was made, and how the couples were paired up for their characters.

Canadian actress and CBC talent Sook-Yin Lee stars in the film as Sofia Lin, a sex therapist with her own sexual problems who starts exploring alternatives at a social club known as the Shortbus.
