I’ve been asked to judge the 2012 TIFF Student Film Showcase. It’s a privilege to get a taste of next gen cinematic talent. I personally love shorts. I also love short stories (A Moveable Feast anyone?) and tapas so there may be a theme there. Short films are so digestible…or are they more akin to cinematic palate cleansers? Whatever the culinary metaphor, I’m invigorated by watching this year’s student films. I’ve even come out of the experience with two delightful new film quips, from Mathew Yim’s Woody Allen-esque ‘April Doesn’t Hurt Here’:
'Baby Make Baskets Buoyant'
'I keep seeing Metaphors everywhere.’
(one more line and I have a Haiku)
