Sundance is crowded and cold. Why not see the best new films from across Canada here?

Bravo!FACT, aka Foundation to Assist Canadian Talent, has distributed millions of dollars in grants for the production of hundreds of shorts across Canada.

This screening gathers up the best of this year's crop, by artists as diverse as turntablist Kid Koala, Canada’s poet laureate, George Bowering, and improv star Colin Mochrie. But frankly, we’re a little more partial to the creative joints of local luminaries Andy Curtis, Sandi Somers, Kimberley Cooper and Karen Hines.

Reception to follow with many of the filmmakers in attendance.

SHORTS: The Artistic Taxidermist, Methusulah, I’m Sorry, Stuck, Phonecalls from Imaginary Girlfriends: Ankara, Aruba, Waiting, Burnt Toast: The Argument, Burnt Toast: I Am Sooo Over You, The Anniversary Present, Everything’s Falling, Little Saddy and Lost in the Library.
