CANADA'S TOP TEN SHORTS
Program I — 6pm | Program II — 7:30pm

Program I — 6pm
THE ARGUMENT ● What begins as an inquiry on things that mean other things itself becomes a thing that means other things, too. And whatever exactly that thing is, the latest by one of Canada's most ingenious auteurs is another astounding feat of cerebral and cinephilic dexterity. Daniel Cockburn, ON. 20 min.

THREADS ● In this spellbinding hand-drawn odyssey by celebrated, Oscar-winning animator Torill Kove, a bustling urban habitat becomes an enchanting web of human connection. Threads explores how fundamental attachment is to the experience of being human. Torill Kove, QC. 8 min.

MILK ● A reticent young dairy-farm employee struggles with the news of an unexpected pregnancy. A methodical cycle of calf births and milk extraction becomes an incisive meditation on the implications of reproduction and the anxiety of impending parenthood. Heather Young, NS. 14 min.

THE BOTANIST ● This startling documentary by Montreal-based Maude Plante-Husaruk and Maxime Lacoste-Lebuis draws us deep into Tajikstan, where a delightfully iconoclastic botanist uses everything and anything around him to make life for his family a little less difficult. Maxime Lacoste-Lebuis, Maude Plante-Husaruk, QC. 20 min.

THE DROP IN ● On a night like any other, Joelle is closing up her hair salon when a mysterious visitor appears asking too many questions about her citizenship. Nothing is what it seems in this fierce and stylish genre-bending allegory on immigration and belonging. Naledi Jackson, ON. 13 min.

Program II — 7:30pm
RUPTURE ● On a sweltering summer day, four Arab kids venture into their new city to find a pool and relief from the heat. Rupture is a deeply moving observance of adaptation and resilience through challenges that no child should have to face. Yassmina Karajah, BC. 18 min.

FLOOD ● Using the intricate stop-motion animation style that’s swiftly become her signature, Amanda Strong has crafted a richly visual film that explores the impact of colonization on Canada’s Indigenous peoples in a manner that’s both beautifully simple and profoundly moving. Amanda Strong, BC. 5 min.

THE CRYING CONCH ● The true history of the leader of an 18th-century slave rebellion in Haiti is transformed into the stuff of myth and ritual in a visually sumptuous effort by Canada’s Vincent Toi, connecting the brutality of our colonial past with the resilience of the present. Vincent Toi, QC. 20 min.

THE TESLA WORLD LIGHT ● The world's greatest inventor ponders a revolutionary new concept of electricity while diving into a romantic fantasy about a feathery visitor to his windowsill in Matthew Rankin's astounding live-action/animation hybrid. Matthew Rankin, MB-QC. 8 min.

PRE-DRINK ● Alexe, a trans woman, and Carl, her gay best friend, disrupt the boundaries of their friendship when they decide to have sex for the first time — and raw emotional truths collide with illusions of breezy detachment at a time of transition. Marc-Antoine Lemire, QC. 23 min.
