Award-winning projects at last year's Toronto Indie included a documentarian's poignant account of a struggling reparatory cinema (The Rep), a horror-comedy set amidst natural disasters and superstorms (They Will Outlive Us All), a short film about a deeply held secret (Today I Will Tell Her), and a comedic showdown between a group of sailors and a menacing pimp (The Crooked Anchor).
Toronto Indie has steadily grown from its humble beginnings and has helped elevate numerous careers along the way. Fueled by great stories, topical industry discussions, and targeted social networking, Toronto Indie reserves special consideration for first- and second-time filmmakers and is a fantastic platform from which to launch into a global marketplace.
