Powerful stories reflect a truth. Yet, truth can be challenging to express. We invite celebrated, veteran Canadian filmmakers to share their experiences: What role does courage play in your development as a filmmaker? How do you deal with subjects that frighten you? Can they be reconciled through creativity? Award-winning Canadian directors, Alanis Obomsawin, Charles Officer and Anita Doron reflect on the experiences that have shaped their ability to tell difficult stories.
Moderating the panel is Jennifer Holness, an award-winning writer and producer. Her first feature, Love, Sex and Eating the Bones, won nine festival awards including Best First Feature at TIFF 2003. Jennifer recently co-wrote and produced the feature Home Again, directed by Sudz Sutherland.
