GUEST MODERATOR: JOHN PAIZS
John Paizs is one of Canada’s leading independent filmmakers. He originated the iconoclastic and legendary “Winnipeg Film Group style” with groundbreaking work which film critic Geoff Pevere dubbed “Prairie Post-Modernism.”  His early films established Paizs as the leader of the
new wave of Canadian cinema and prompted the late film critic Jay Scott to bring his works to national and international attention. In particular, SPRINGTIME IN GREENLAND (1981) and CRIME WAVE (1985) have become bona fide cult hits and received significant recognition from the Canadian film community.  He is currently the Director in Residence at the CFC (Canadian Film Centre.)
 
CHEWY BRILLIANCE written by Shivani Sharma
A young artist reveals his latest piece at a lavish art gala. The pleasant night turns awry when he crosses paths with an old foe who has not forgotten about their rivaling pasts.
 
BETWEEN THE LINES written by Katrina Nicole Sison
An insomniac scriptwriter tries to write the perfect love story while having schizophrenic episodes where his characters battle to dictate the plot’s outcome.
 
*FREE PIZZA will be served at the event. LIFT would like to thank PIZZA PIZZA for their generosity.
