I’m really happy to announce that My Mother’s Letters, by Serge Giguère, will be in competition at Hot Docs this Spring, in the Canadian Spectrum.
Bien heureuse d’annoncer que Les lettres de ma mère, de Serge Giguère, sera présenté en compétition à Hot Docs en mai prochain, dans la section Canadian Spectrum.
Here is a review by the Daily Xtra: Five queer films you don’t want to miss at Hot Docs 2017
We are moving stories published a great interview with the filmmaker Bobbi Jo Hart about her last film, Rebels on Pointe:
“Given my style of filmmaking has always been passionately focused on cinema verite style — following life as it happens, so to speak — my script was driven by the realities of the company and the dancers’ lives. Luckily I had a wonderful editor, Catherine Legault, who helped me craft a narrative arc from this footage, because it is much easier to start with a script and then shoot scenes to fit that script, then it is to just let life unfold and capture it on the fly, and then weaving a narrative together in the editing room!”
