Rebecca Pahle of filmjournal.com reports that ShowCanada is heading out to Los Angeles for a 30th year on air. While every year features a different location somewhere in Canada, this year they are trying something different because LA is the one place in the world where the film industry is strongest — and where the world of film came from.
Michael D. Reid writes in The Times Colonist about Jeremy Lutter, whose short film goes to Cannes this year. Lutter has proved himself to be a master of dramatic timing and feeling. His short film Reset is about an android that gets feelings for her owner. It will be screened May 16 at the Marche du Film market.
