Notes by Jason Anderson, Danis Goulet, Lisa Haller, and Kathleen McInnis

Blind Vaysha
With one eye that can only see the past and one that can only see the future, a girl is tormented by two irreconcilable realities. Blind Vaysha is a vivid and gorgeously crafted 3D fable about living in the present.

Frame 394
Shortlisted for an Academy Award, Rich Williamson’s documentary explores ideas of truth in images. When a Toronto man analyzes the shaky footage of police shooting unarmed motorist Walter Scott in South Carolina, he finds himself entangled in one of America’s most highprofile and racially-charged cases.

Emma
Fourteen-year-old Emma struggles to hide her alopecia areata, a condition of rapid, unpredictable hair loss. Director Martin Edralin delicately details the uneasy path towards self-acceptance in this quiet and sublime film.


Her Friend Adam
A boyfriend’s insecurities spark an argument that spirals into a full-on emotional meltdown, in this powerful single-take drama featuring a Sundance Special Jury Award–winning performance by 2016 TIFF Rising Star Grace Glowicki.


Fluffy
Boris and his family are preparing to leave his hypochondriac parents and their impossibly tiny Belgrade flat for a long-awaited new life in Canada. However, his 10-year-old daughter Ljubica has entered a contest that is about to subvert everyone’s plans.
