While there are already loads of great and award winning films to add to your must see list, as well as a bunch that didn’t hit their mark, there were so many great movies this year that didn’t sneak into my festival favourites worthy of celebration.
Here are ten more TIFF 2018 selections definitely worth your time.
Patricia Rozema’s adaptation of Amy Nostbakken and Norah Sadava’s play was one of the best of the fest, an emotionally rich and sophisticated work that takes the best of the theatrical project and merges them with Rozema’s well honed filmmaking sensibilities to craft a fabulous film.
The longer I’m away from this film the more it’s sticking with me. Another non-fiction home run from the Danish Film Institute, Janus Metz and Sine Plambech’s decades long journey to tell this tale of love and sacrifice makes for one of the year’s best.
Perhaps the most accomplished of the Canadian films that played TIFF – it debuted to great success at Venice, is off to New York for NYFF and then heads off on a long festival journey – this short, sweet journey to a Greenwich Village guitar is highly musical and a warm, welcome respite from some of the more dour films that litter the fest.
