Saara Chaudry is just 13 years old, but she’s already got the charisma and intelligence of an actor twice her age, which might be why director Nora Twomey chose the young star to play Parvana in the animated adaptation of The Breadwinner.
Anne Winters surprised more than a few people when she dropped by The GATE’s Interview Lounge at TIFF 2017. Winters has stopped by to talk about the horror film Mom and Dad, but when I asked for a demo of her “horror movie scream” even I was surprised. Luckily no one called the cops on us.
The Hamilton Ventura is one of the most stylish, eye-catching watches ever made, and this year the iconic timepiece celebrates its 60th anniversary of turning heads.
For her sixth feature film, director, writer, producer, actor and all around DIY Jill-of-all-trades Ingrid Veninger takes filmgoers to Porcupine Lake (set to make its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival this week). A unique coming-of-age story from one of Canada’s most resolutely independent filmmakers, the latest from Veninger (MODRA, The Animal Project) represents both a departure for her cinematically and a telling of one of her most personal stories to date.
In addition to screening hundreds of feature films every year, the Toronto International Film Festival (kicking off on Thursday, September 7th and running to the 17th) boasts an exceptionally strong line-up of shorts. The Short Cuts Programme has become one of the most prominent showcases of short filmmaking in the world, but films functioning outside of the sexier, long-form norm can be found popping up throughout the festival in various sections, perhaps most notably in the daring, boundary pushing Wavelengths program.
Hamilton Watch, Sparkling Ice, Flawless by Friday, The Macallan, and Roku, join The GATE’s Interview Lounge at the 2017 Toronto International Film Festival.

Director Adam Smith sat down with me during the Toronto International Film Festival to talk about his film Trespass Against Us which stars Michael Fassbender and Brendan Gleeson as a son and his father who live on the fringes of society, and are spiraling apart from each other as the police start to hunt them for recent high-end thefts.
