The 44th Toronto International Film Festival descended upon the city last week, and for its opening weekend, DGC Ontario and CBC Arts staged a full day of panel talks featuring industry professionals who work behind the scenes to bring some of TIFF’s hottest tickets to the silver screen. The series of insightful discussions were hosted by Amanda Parris and Johanna Schneller of The Filmmakers.

The panel of feature filmmakers, made up of Semi Chellas (American Woman), Joey Klein (Castle in the Ground), Amy Jo Johnson (Tammy’s Always Dying) and Albert Shin (Clifton Hill) led to an insightful discussion about overcoming creative setbacks, how each filmmaker has carved out their own unique path in the industry and dispelled myths about the singular filmmaking genius.
