Last Tuesday, we held an event at the TIFF Bell Lightbox in Toronto called Discovery Sessions: Behind The Lens, where we invited filmmakers J Blakeson (The Disappearance of Alice Creed), Larysa Kondracki (The Whistleblower), Barry Jenkins (Medicine for Melancholy) and Rola Nashef (Detroit Unleaded), to speak about the trials and tribulations of getting their films made.
Spirits were high as everyone shared their inspirational stories. Meaning there was plenty of film banter and... beer. Obviously.
If you were there on the night you might be able to spot yourself among these snaps. So take a look, and enjoy!

A big shout-out to everyone who came down. We hope to see you guys next time!
