MUFFTix: Breakthroughs Film Festival 2018
There are a lot of rad film festivals in Toronto but by far one of the coolest is Breakthroughs Film Festival. What makes it so cool? Only that it focuses on emerging female filmmaker talent. NO BIG DEAL. BFF (yessss, best acronym), is the only Canadian film festival devoted to screening short films from filmmakers who are just breaking into the Canadian and worldwide film scene. We've been fans of theirs for a while now and are very excited to be officially co-presenting two of their fantastic films this year!
JESSICA JESSICA (dir. Jasper Savage) - Jessica Jessica is a grown up coming of age story. The funny/sexy/sad/truth of how hard it is to be a woman who wants to settle down, but won’t settle.
AMARETTA (dir. Hana Maeorg) - A coming-of-age comedy about a young girl who, for the first time, realizes that the world isn’t as fair for girls as it is for boys.
The festival runs June 15 and 16th at the Royal Cinema. In just two nights you can see 19 films from talented women filmmakers from all over the world. Along with co-presenting these most excellent shorts, we're also giving away two passes to the festival so you can get in on this action. Scroll down to enter.
