The Toronto After Dark Film Festival ran this past October 20-27, 2011, and what with the Halloween holiday and all the Afm news we've been pumping out, the results of the fest got a little bit lost in the shuffle. But we're remedying that right now with the rundown on who took home what from the 6th annual festival of new horror, sci-fi, action and cult movies.
The big winner at Toronto After Dark 2011 was the cult action film Father's Day from Winnipeg-based film collective Astron-6, which won the festival's top prize, the Audience Choice Award for Best Feature Film (Gold). The Divide, the dark apocalyptic sci-fi movie from Xavier Gens (Frontiers, Hitman) won the Audience Silver, while zombie movie fans will be delighted to hear that indie undead buddy comedy Deadheads (from the Pierce Brothers) was given the Audience Choice 3rd Place Prize, Bronze.
