When Barb (Wanda Sykes) and Matthew (Hamish Linklater) both announce they’re moving out and Ritchie (Trevor Gagnon) leaves for science camp, Christine (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) tries to prove to everyone – including herself – that she’s capable of taking care of herself.

CTV is pleased to celebrate today’s announcement that 11 of the 40 short films, a whopping 28%, selected to screen at this year’s Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) were funded by CTV’s Bravo!FACT (Foundation to Assist Canadian Talent). As well, one of Bravo!’s upcoming documentaries, Genius Within: The Inner Life of Glenn Gould was also selected to screen at TIFF.

A one-hour version of the documentary, Genius Within: The Inner Life of Glenn Gould, is set to air on Bravo! in the 2009 – 2010 broadcast season as a part of Bravo!’s GREAT CANADIAN BIO SERIES. A collaboration between award-winning documentary director Peter Raymont and award-winning editor Michèle Hozer, Genius Within: The Inner Life of Glenn Gould explores these questions and humanizes the icon. An enigmatic musical poet, world-renowned pianist Glenn Gould continues to captivate twenty-seven years after his untimely death. Intimately revealing the man behind the myth, Genius Within: The Inner Life of Glenn Gould casts a fresh light on the mysterious pianist whose ideas were as controversial, and his private life as passionate as his music. Raymont’s previous documentaries Shake Hands with the Devil: The Journey of Roméo Dallaire and A Promise to the Dead: The Exile Journey of Ariel Dorfman have also screened at TIFF.

2009 marks the tenth year that Bravo!FACT shorts will screen at TIFF. Since 1998, a total of 61 shorts funded by Bravo!FACT have been selected to screen at TIFF. This year’s selections, which come from across Canada are: Danse Macabre (Pedro Pires), Tungijuq (Paul Raphaël, Félix Lajeunesse), Found (Paramita Nath), The Island (Trevor Anderson), Unlocked (Mio Adilman), Pointless Film (Peter Wellington), Record (Dylan Reibling), 5 Dysfunctional People in a Car (Pat Mills), fish in barrel (Randall Okita), Sixty Seconds of Regret (Ed Gass-Donnelly), The Armoire (Jamie Travis). Detailed descriptions can be found below.

In addition to the honour of being selected to screen at TIFF, the festival has selected six shorts to stream online at www.TIFF.net, including three Bravo!FACT-funded shorts (Pointless, The Island, Record). Finally, eight (out of only 25) Bravo!FACT grant awardees (past and present) will be participating in this year’s TIFF Talent Lab – Trevor Anderson (The Island), Annie Bradley (Tongue Bully, End of Nevermind), Jamie M. Dagg (Waiting, Her Disappearing Theme), Walter Forsyth (Old Saint Nick, How to be Alone), Sarah Galea-Davis (I Made a Girlfriend), Gloria Ui Young Kim (Rock Garden: a Love Story), Michelle Latimer (Choke), and Ayelen Liberona (Becoming).

Danse Macabre

This short film from writer/director Pedro Pires explores the intimate journey of a body after its death. Set to the Casta Diva from Bellini’s Opera Norma sung by Maria Callas, Danse Macabre is director Pedro Pires’s second Bravo!FACT-funded short. Concept: Robert Lepage; Performer/Original Idea: AnneBruce Falconer; Producer: Catherine Chagnon (Québec)

Tungijuq
From directors Paul Raphaël and Félix Lajeunesse, Tungijug is an epic encounter between hunter and prey. Computer-generated video mixes live action and computer animation for an organic expression of Inuit culture and traditional practices with music by throat singer Tanya Tagaq as she transforms from human to animal. Actors: Tanya Tagaq, Zacharias Kunuk; Music: Tanya Tagaq, Jesse Zubot; Producers: Stéphane Rituit, Igloolik Isuma Productions (Québec)

Found
Paramita Nath’s Found is an impressionistic journey told through old photos, text, animation, and home movies. It begins when Toronto poet Suvankham Thammavongsa discovers her father’s discarded scrapbook that documents the family’s escape from Laos in the 1970s. Poet/Performer: Souvankham Thammavongsa; Actor: Kevin Au; Animators: Tomasz Dysinski, Vincent Marcone, Producer: Ted Biggs.

The Island
Inspired by a piece of “fan mail,” that’s really homophobic hate mail suggesting “all you faggots” be shipped off to an island; this short film from Trevor Anderson explores the idea of a homo-utopia. With the help of animation, Anderson imagines his Northern Alberta home transforming into a whimsical paradise of sand, sun, cocktails, and gay men. Animators: Jeff LeDrew, Rat Creek Design; Producers: Julia Rosenberg, Tyler Levine, January Films.

Unlocked
In his directorial debut, Mio Adilman’s Unlocked is a series of three short films about a man, his bicycle, and his temper. Three times a man finds someone else’s bike locked to his own, and each time his reaction is different while his neurotic mother uses his anger as a jumping off point for a nervous breakdown of her own. Actors: Jean Yoon, Bobby Del Rio, Paul Hyung Sun Lee; Producer: Aeschylus Poulos.

Pointless
The latest short film from well-know Canadian film and television director Peter Wellington features a funny if frustrating negotiation over the sale price of a used futon. Tensions rise as the seller and buyer try to agree on a price. It’s a dramatization of a scenario of trivial stakes, so keenly observed that they become thrilling. Actors: Noam Jenkins, Oliver Dennis; Producers: Jennifer Weiss, Simone Urdl, The Film Farm.

Record
From writer/director Dylan Reibling, Record is based on the true story of a sidewalk record sale. Derek, an avid vinyl enthusiast, sells records in front of his house on weekends. Things take an emotional turn when he plays what he thinks is an appropriate album at the site of three Russian friends out for a Saturday stroll. Actors: Peter Pasyk, Daniel Matmor; Producer: Equation of Design.

5 Dysfunctional People in a Car

Everyone in the car has a secret: the professional woman dating someone half her age, the 13-year-old who gives herself hickeys with a vacuum cleaner, even Grandma. Written and directed by Pat Mills, 5 Dysfunctional People in a Car is a witty short about a dysfunctional family dropping Grandma off at a retirement home against her wishes. It’s Mills’ second short to screen at TIFF. Actors: Eileen Sword, Chantelle Wilson, Curtis Lazar, David Kinsman, Liam Stockla, Lori Read, Sarah Butcher, Shannon Ford; Producer: Julie Edelstein, Ryan Dias.

fish in barrel
fish in barrel combines elements of sculpture, photography, and video to slow time and visually explore the idea of internal conflict. This psychological struggle is extended into an underwater environment that can be seen as nurturing, dangerous, inhospitable, safe, or distant. It is director Randall Okita’s second Bravo!FACT-funded short to screen at TIFF. Actors: Leif Nygaard, Brendan McLeod, Roberta Cenedese; Producers: Darcy Van Poelgeest, Absitomen Media, Life is Short Entertainment. 

Sixty Seconds of Regret
Written, directed and produced by award-winning filmmaker Ed Gass-Donnelly, Sixty Seconds of Regret is a visual experiment about loneliness and regret. Inspired by the rural frankness of William Eggleston’s photographs as the dreamlike aesthetics of photographers Mona Kuhn and Uta Barth, the film is a wordless moment of silent reflection as an old man ponders an event from his distant past. This is Gass-Donnelly’s fifth Bravo!FACT-funded short. Actors: Jock McLeod, Aaron Poole, Kat Germain; Producer: 3 Legged Dog Films.

The Armoire
The Armoire is producer Mark Montefiore’s third Bravo!FACT-funded short and his first time with a film at TIFF. From writer director Jamie Travis is an exploration of the dark recesses of suburbia that is comedy, a horror, and a melodrama at once. It begins with a game of hide-and-seek after which Aaron’s friend Tony is never found. The mystery of their relationship – and of their queer attachment to the armoire in Aaron’s bedroom – can only be revealed, it turns out, through hypnosis. At once a comedy, a horror and a melodrama, Jamie Travis’ The Armoire is the finale to his Saddest Children in the World trilogy. Actors: William Cuddy, Ricardo Hoyos; Producers: Mark Montefiore, Triptych Media.

We believe in the immensity and the promise of ‘showbiz’ and will continue to give it mouth-to-mouth, till its vomiting return. All you need is a camcorder, a flashlight, and one truly GREAT idea.
