A colourful portrait of the life and career of 93-year-old photographer Gabor Szilasi through the eyes of his friend and filmmaker Joannie Lafrenière.

Their journey elegantly weaves together the life story of this celebrated artist.

Love in the Time of Fentanyl

An intimate portrait of current and former drug users coming together to operate a safe injection site in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside, sometimes referred to as ground zero of the overdose crisis.

Kids Cup

A Canadian Premiere at 2023 DocFest! Kids Cup is a heartwarming film about friendship, ambitions, victories, and losses. Five teens compete for different countries in the Norway Cup soccer tournament, but not everyone can go home with the gold medal.

A film about who’s work gets seen and who’s doesn’t, what the secret and not so secret rules of success are, and the ability to forge one’s own path in today’s unregulated art world.
