Rave: enRoute Film Festival

TIFF may be over (for now), but that doesn’t mean that the film
festivals have stopped. 



Tonight, FREE public screenings of the top six Air Canada enRoute FilmFestival films will be happening across Canada. You can catch them tonight at 7 p.m. (EST and PST) in Toronto at the Varsity Theatre (55 Bloor St.
W.), in Vancouver at the Scotiabank Theatre (900 Burrard St.) and in Montreal
at the Quartier Latin (350 rue Emery).


For the past six years, Air Canada has been taking emerging Canadian filmmakers to new heights, literally, by showing their
short films on both domestic and international flights. 

The winner will be chosen by a jury of industry
experts, including Jay Baruchel,
actor (How to Train Your Dragon), Niv Fichman, producer (Passchendaele), Mary Harron, director (American
Psycho
), Alison Pill, actor (The Newsroom), Gordon Pinsent, actor (Away
From Her
), Callum Keith Rennie,
actor (The Killing), Saul Rubinek, actor (Barney’s Version), Jacob Tierney, director (The
Trotsky
), and Karine Vanasse, actor (Polytechnique).

After hundreds of entries, they’re down to the final four competing for the top prize. The 2012 Air Canada enRoute Film Festival finalists are:

Alexander Carson for We
Refuse to Be Cold
Fernand-Philippe Morin-Vargas for Noeud
papillon
Danielle Sahota and Davina Rimmer for We
Blinded the Sun
Justin Friesen for Let’s
Make Lemonade
The winner of the Best Short Film Award will receive a cash
prize of $5,000, courtesy of Cineplex Entertainment. Other awards include Achievement
in Documentary, Achievement in Direction and Achievement in 
Cinematography. All award winners will also receive an all-inclusive Air
Canada trip for two to the Clermont-Ferrand International Short Film Festival in France. 

This year, viewers will vote for their favourite film to
determine the winner of the inaugural People’s Choice Award. Voting ends Wednesday, November 7 at enRoutefilm.com. The winner will be
announced live at the awards celebration in Toronto on November 7 and will receive an Air Canada flight for two to a North American destination of
their choice.
