Good Girls Don’t, DIR. Ana de Lara
A playful comedy about a Filipina-Canadian girl who defies her mother’s warning that she’ll turn into a boy if she plays sports (spoiler alert: she doesn’t). Using humour and magical realism, GOOD GIRLS DON’T explores gender inequality through the eyes of a young girl following her dreams.
Juggernaut, DIR. Daniel DiMarco
Some people are just born with explosively short tempers and violence coursing through their veins. Juggernaut (developed under the title Wrecking Ball) tells the suspenseful story of a small-town bad boy, Saxon Gamble (Jack Kesy) who returns to his hometown on the occasion of his mother’s death. He has been told that it was a suicide, but he’s not buying it. Something in his gut tells him that his brother, who stayed behind, is somehow responsible for his mother’s passing and has covered up his crime. True to his own violent nature, he slowly plots his revenge.
