About this Event

Toronto has done it again with its talented class of young filmmakers we wish to celebrate and this year is the first year we'll be hosting a feature film pertinent to the current political climate: Islam and the Future of Tolerance. Join us for the celebration, Q&A with the filmmakers and a lively discussion.

The Films:

Terminal Love: A young boy and a girl who have recently started going out meet for a seemingly normal coffee date. However, they soon find out this might just be their very last conversation.

iRony: A film that explores the relationship between man and technology...told from the perspective of a phone.A film that explores the relationship between man and technology...told from the perspective of a phone.

Everything You Wanted to Say: A socially-challenged man struggles for control of his voice when an A.I. speech inhibitor jeopardizes his ailing relationships.

Landed Citizen: 26 year old Rob Arroyo returns to Canada after a 20-year absence. However, re-integrating into Western society is a lot harder than he imagined.

True North Strong: True North Strong investigates why leaders in this movement have become radicalized to the Alt Right and the sources of the fear that fuels their beliefs.

Medium Rare: Functional and aesthetic values in recurrent, yet questionable domestic scenarios.

On Our Own: A young girl learns to adapt to her new reality after a death in the family.

Dotage: Jackie leaves the hospice for the day to surprise her niece at her birthday party. When she arrives, she is welcomed into a quiet house, which is very different from what Jackie remembers her niece’s birthday parties being like.

Tampon: Katie's about to have a romantic night with her guy when her period keeps getting in the way.

A Voice: In this film, we visit a local park in Peterborough, Ontario - which is currently inhabited by homeless people living in tents - to talk to and hear the stories and experiences of one man.

Penny (Premier): This timely film explores racial tensions and the bond between two strangers on a mid-summer night.

The Feature:

Islam and the Future of Tolerance (Canadian Premier): In a world riven by violence and misunderstanding, prominent atheist author Sam Harris and Islamist-turned-liberal Muslim Maajid Nawaz seek to provide a remedy to the polarizing rhetoric and obscurantism around the topic of Islam.
