Suck It Up @ Slamdance 2017

We are thrilled to announce that Suck It Up will be having its World Premiere at the 2017 Slamdance Film Festival.

The film will be screened in the Beyond program, which showcases bold and daring films from emerging filmmakers working beyond their first features. Suck It Up is one of only five films in the Beyond program, and the only Canadian film in that section.

We are so excited to head to Park City in January to celebrate and screen the film with the whole team!

Keep up to date on the film via our social media on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

An exciting March

After a long winter that just didn’t want to quit, March brought a little light along with it. Our upcoming feature film Suck it Up was awarded $120,000 of in-kind services from the Women in the Director’s Chair Feature Film Award. As if that wasn’t thrilling enough, Space Riders: Division Earth also took home a Canadian Screen Award for Best Digital Series. Hope this bodes well for a good spring!

Film Festivals 2014

We are overjoyed to announce that We Were Wolves will be having its World Premiere at the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival! Congratulations to the small but mighty dream team involved in this film – it could never have been made without you.

After TIFF, we will hit the Atlantic Film Festival, the St. John’s International Women’s Film Festival and the Whistler Film Festival.

Stay tuned for more screening info!

We Were Wolves and Space Riders

Last week we completed packaging on Get Set’s first feature, We Were Wolves. Many thanks to the tireless post-production team, especially our editor Jon Eagan. Stay tuned for news about future screenings and updates!

Until then, why not check out Space Riders: Division Earth, the hilarious sci-fi web series we just finished for CTV.ca starring Mark Little and Dan Beirne? It’s the best way to kill an hour around, we promise!

Here Comes December

Just a quick update to highlight some exciting award news. Seconds was awarded the Shaw Media Fearless Female Director Award at the NSI Online Short Film Festival this month, and will be featured on the site throughout December for Fearless Female Director Month. So many females, so little fear – I love it! Last week, Seconds was also named one of the Top 12 Canadian Short Films by The Shorts Report, along with eleven other fantastic shorts. So exciting! Finally, I’m also extremely humbled to have been awarded the 2013 Best Short Film Award by the Women’s International Film and Television Showcase. It’s an incredible honour to be in such fine company. A pretty nice way to end the year as we put our heads down and prepare for the long winter ahead…
