Film Friday | Weekly Roundup

You guys, this week was way too short. I know, I know what you’re thinking. Week’s are long – too long!- and Friday’s never come soon enough. I do agree, Friday’s are fragile, rare butterflies and should be treated accordingly. But I had one of those Monday through Thursdays where a lot of stuff got done, and I mean a lot, but there’s still a lot of stuff to do. I suspect some crazy CIA time-continuum stretching experiment went horribly awry and we lost Tuesday or something. Wait… I’ve said too much. Let’s just say that, despite my busy bee-ness, I still managed to scour the interwebs for the best filmy bits so you don’t have to. Let’s got to it. Happy reading and happy viewing!

Speaking of IndieCan… Moon Point Review

cast-of-moonpoint

Moon Point opens tonight at AMC, Yonge and Dundas. You can play hooky and catch it at 2 pm. If you’re a stick and the mud and refuse to fake-sick, hit the evening screening for a Q&A with the cast and filmmakers.

Moon Point, the first release from new kid on the block distributor IndieCan Entertainment, is waiting to be your new favourite movie. It’s a hip little film, with all the baggage that word may imply. Moon Point is self-aware, extremely cool, and comes complete with a catchy indie-stocked soundtrack; director Sean Cisterna has obviously studied indie cult classics and sleeper hits (think: Garden State, Juno, Little Miss Sunshine). Moon Point will remind you of those small and charming movies, and in the best possible way. After seeing it, you’ll be left with the feeling that you just spent an hour and forty minutes with an old, familiar friend. And you’ll be wishing you had more friends just like that one.

IndieCan Entertainment

There’s a new film distribution company in town, and I wrote about it for The Toronto Film Scene. If you care about Canadian independent film, you’re going to care about IndieCan Entertainment.

Veteran film producer Avi Federgreen, the man responsible for productions like Score: A Hockey Musical, George Ryga’s Hungry Hills, and the upcoming release Moon Point, has launched a new film distribution company, IndieCan Entertainment. IndieCan’s goal, and Federgreen’s personal mission, is to highlight up-and-coming Canadian filmmakers and shine a light into one of the darker corners of independent filmmaking: namely, those films with budgets less than $1.25 million.
