Ready for a primer of the CFC and a solid overview of Canadian film in the 90’s and 2000’s? Welcome to part 1 of our in depth look at the work of the Canadian Film Centre. This week, Becky sits down with Justine Whyte, Director and Executive Producer of CFC Features, to talk about the history of the film centre, the importance of short films to making a feature and five (and more) of the spectacular feature films that they’ve produced.
This week, we’re talking about Holly Dale’s Blood and Donuts from 1995, Jeff Barnaby’s Rhymes for Young Ghouls from 2013 and Cube from 1997.
Join us next week where we’ll discuss Adventures in Public School which made a splash in 2017’s TIFF festival and 1995’s Rude which appeared in the Un Certain Regarde category at Cannes. Also stay tuned helpful tips for filmmakers and writers looking to get their own work produced by the CFC.
