Fresh Canuck Horror At The Canadian Film Festival

on March 19, 2012 | 1 Comment

The Canadian Film Festival, which runs March 28-31, here in Toronto, has three features for genre fans in the line-up, plus a horror-themed panel lined up.

The films: The Unleashed, A Little Bit Zombie and Below Zero. The schedule is up here, and I’ve posted trailers below.

The panel is called Canadian Genre Movie Scene. Here’s the description:

A frank and candid discussion about the new wave of horror film directors in Canada. Why are so many emerging filmmakers turning to genre films (think: A LITTLE BIT ZOMBIE, HOBO WITH A SHOTGUN, SPLICE)? Why are audiences responding so well? The landscape of genre-filmmaking in Canada is in a state of flux so where is it going and where did it begin? What can filmmakers do to anticipate audiences’ desires? Join representatives from Anchor Bay entertainment, filmmakers and others in a panel discussion moderated by Toronto’s own Warren P. Sonoda (TODD AND THE BOOK OF PURE EVIL, SERVITUDE, UNRIVALED) for an enlightening look into the future of Canadian genre filmmaking.
