Canada’s Moving Image Film Festival showcases commercial and art house films on an equal basis. The Festival aims to find new, innovative films that push the envelope by altering the way society views cinema. Special programming this year highlights genres and concepts from music to animation to noir. Films that have a blockbuster feel but are executed on a shoestring budget are recognized in the Blockbuster Bonanza: Big Dreams In The Making showcase; Canada’s ethnic mosaic is on display in the Across Canada: Foreign Works From Abroad showcase, and Toronto’s urban vibe is captured in the Toronto Nights: Big City Stories section, to name just a few.
Dates: October 16 – 18, 2009
Location: Toronto, Ontario – Canada
