Short Film Face Off Announces Competing Films for 2015 Season

CBC’s Short Film Face Off recently announced the program’s newest contestants for its upcoming season this fall.  The following films and film makers will compete for a combined cash and production equipment rental package prize valued at $45,000:

The Toll, by Scott Simpson (Halifax, NS)

W-A-L-K, by Anna Sikorski (Montreal, QC)

Emily, by Joshua Demers (Waterloo, ON)

Period Piece, by James McLellan (Winnipeg, MB)

ME2, by Martine Blue (St. John’s, NL)

Eddie, by Allison Coon-Come (Montreal, QC)

Loss of Contact, by BJ Verot (Winnipeg, MB)

Heer, by Honey B. Singh (Brampton, ON)

Nervous Poo, by Nina Reed (Whitehorse, YT)

After reading each of the film summaries on the website, they definitely sound unique and
fascinating. A variety of themes and issues will be explored as comedies and as serious works. What’s also interesting is that the cities of Montreal and Winnipeg will each
be represented by two films. For information about each film and Short Film Face Off, check out: and

Absent in this year’s contest are short films from Saskatchewan, Alberta and British Columbia.  However, we go further north this year for a short from the Yukon. It will be a long wait through the summer to find out who the winner will be, but the wait will be well worth it. Good luck to all the contestants on this year’s Short Film Face Off!
