TORONTO INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL: WAVELENGHTS PROGRAM (ENG)

By Zach Lewis

In the relatively small Jackman Hall in the Art Gallery of Ontario, just a few blocks north of TIFF’s central action hub on King Street, a long crowd gathers with tickets, their press and industry badges, or their hopes that they will be able to rush inside. The theatre seats two-hundred, and every seat finds an occupant. This is the empirical evidence of the success of TIFF’s Wavelengths program, shorts and features that are labeled experimental or at least close enough, helmed by programmer Andréa Picard.
