Join us tomorrow night for the 5th anniversary of Air Canada’s enRoute Film Festival FREE screening at the Scotiabank Theatre (259 Richmond St. W.). 7 to 8 p.m.
Hundreds of Canadian filmmakers entered the enRoute Film Festival and now we’re down to three finalists, who will compete against each other for the grand prize. The big winner will be chosen by an A-list jury panel, including Emmanuelle Chriqui, Molly Parker, Atom Egoyan, Jean-Marc Vallée, and producer Don Carmody.
The 2011 Air Canada enRoute Film Festival finalists are:
Miles Jay and Orlee-Rose Strauss for Blink
Timothy Chan for A Starry Night
Ashley McKenzie and Nelson MacDonald for Rhonda’s Party
The competing films have been playing on your Air Canada touch screen entertainment system this past summer, but if you haven’t seen them yet, grab some popcorn and enjoy a bunch of the short films alongside the filmmakers themselves.
The winner of Best Short Film will receive a $5,000 cash prize. Other awards include Achievement in Direction, Achievement in Cinematography, and Achievement in Animation. All award winners will receive a trip to Clermont-Ferrand International Short Film Festival in France.
Last year’s screening was ‘sold out’ (it’s free, in case you didn’t catch that), so come early and enjoy a fun night of film. #awesome
It’s no secret that we love film festivals, so we are thrilled about the enRoute Film Festival’s free public screening happening tomorrow at Scotiabank Theatre at 7 p.m.
For the past four years, Air Canada has showcased emerging Canadian short filmmakers by screening their films on flights. Exposing our homegrown talent to millions of passengers on the in-flight entertainment system is brilliant, and gives people the option to see something other than the latest Hollywood blockbuster (not that there’s anything wrong with that).
