TIFF Next Wave Film Festival: May 10-12

Hey everyone!

I'm sure many of you have heard of TIFF, the Toronto International Film Festival, but for the first time ever, an event is being put on for the younger movie-loving generation. The TIFF Next Wave Film Festival features films geared towards - and even made by - youth, as well as workshops and panels for teens to gain insight into the movie-making industry. I will be covering some of the festivities for Faze Magazine, but was fortunate enough to get to see some advance screenings for some pre-festival coverage.

Check out my reviews for 17 Girls and Fat Kid Rules the World:

17 Girls - a French film based on the true story of the Gloucester pregnancy pact

Fat Kid Rules the World - Directed by Matthew Lillard

As well, the festival wouldn't have been made possible without the help of the TIFF Next Wave Committee. Check out this Q&A with one of it's members, grade 11 student, Emma Seligman:

On May 12, I'll be attending the TIFF Next Wave Set Design Challenge, which takes place all day at the TIFF Bell Lightbox. Looking forward to seeing some talented young filmmakers in progress!
