Lolz-ita // Katie Boland :: A naive but internet savvy 22 year old navigates the reality of her boring, small town Canadian life juxtaposed with the fantasy of her provocative and powerful Instagram celebrity.

Milk // Heather Young :: A young employee of a rural dairy farm is experiencing anxiety regarding her unexpected pregnancy. She finds it difficult to ignore her feelings as she is surrounded by pregnant cows on the farm whose milk she helps to collect after they give birth.

An Imagined Conversation // Stephen Hawking & Kanye West // Sol Friedman :: Over a picnic at the beach, Stephen Hawking and Kanye West discuss quantum mechanics, private insecurities, and Drake. In this wickedly hilarious alt-memoir, Hawking unlocks the coded language of the universe to lead them both closer to personal liberation.

Detroit Blood // Dusty Mancinelli :: A man recounts his complicated relationship with his estranged brother and struggles to find meaning from a violent past.

Creatura Dada // Caroline Monnet :: Featuring Alanis Obomsawin, six regal Indigenous women relish in an opulent feast. This dazzling and sumptuous fantasia is a vivid celebration of their majesty and power and a signal of new beginnings.

Bickford Park // Dane Clark, Linsey Stewart :: After a chance encounter, a Toronto woman discovers she’d rather take skateboarding lessons from a handsome teen than contend with the grown-up complications in her marriage.

Creme de Menthe // Philippe David Gagné, Jean-Marc E. Roy :: After returning to her Quebec hometown for her father’s funeral, a young woman is tasked with clearing out his badly cluttered home. But as she works her way through her dad’s Rush memorabilia and liqueur bottles, she discovers something she didn’t expect, in this moving and often very funny look at the ties that bind.
