With 500 films being shown and more than 50 filmmakers heading to town in support, they certainly don't lack choice.

At just past the midway point , the various international competitions are underway and the industry events have begun bringing truckloads of talent to town, with attendees as diverse as Mephisto director István Szabó, who has received the Bnff Lifetime Award this year, and the Canadian producer of Gabrielle and Whitewash Luc Dery, alongside industry delegates such as Alamo Drafthouse founder. »
