january 2018

Happy 2018! I'm pleased to report my work has been featured on several year-end "best of" lists: Palmerston Blvd. was included by Michael Sicinski in his list of the twenty-five best avant-garde films of 2017, and was also listed on Desistfilm's 2017 film round up by José Sarmiento Hinjosa and Aaron Cutler. Toronto Film Review's best of 2017 also included Palmerston Blvd. on lists by Clint Enns and Claudia Sicondolfo, and Generation was included on Stephen Broomer's list. I contributed my own lists of favourite works from last year to both these sites, focusing on international work for Desistfilm and Canadian work for Toronto Film Review. I hope you will get a chance to check out the excellent range of works noted by a wide range of contributors on both these sites!

Jim Shedden also included Alberta (2014) on his list of 100 Greatest Canadian Films, an ongoing series at Toronto Film Review to celebrate Canada 150. I also contributed my own list to this series.

Finally, in upcoming screening news, I am happy to announce two European presentations next month: 

Palmerston Blvd. and Generation will both be presented at Stuttgarter Filmwinter in Stuttgart, Germany, running from February 8-11th.

Generation will be presented at Les Inattendus Festival in Lyon, France, on February 10th.
