Short Films at Tall Festival

filmcan_logo.gifWhen a movie festival runs for five days and shows over 230 films, calling it ‘short’ seems a little misleading. But the organizers of the World Wide Short Film Festival have decided to go ahead and use the ‘short’ qualifer to describe the bigtime, 11-years and counting event. Starting tonight until this Sunday, June 14-19, films like Taika Waititi’s “Sons of War,” Craig Goodwill’s “My Own Revolution,” Jeff Moneo’s “Plastic Bitch,” Monica Rho’s “Stationary,” Brian Stockton’s “All the Teachers I Have Known,” and Michael White’s “Branding Mupatu” are the highlights. And as anyone can guess from that cut-and-paste job, the only film we recognize here is Chris Landreth’s now famous Academy-Award winning “Ryan.” But you can find out more by buying tickets at venues Bloor Cinema (506 Bloor St W), Isabel Bader Theatre (93 Charles St W), Innis Town Hall (2 Sussex Ave), and Emmanuel College (Queen’s Park Circle).
