This marks Maddin’s second win of the Toronto Film Critics Association’s top Canadian prize after he won for My Winnipeg in 2008.
“At its best, Canadian cinema is notorious for stunning the world with outlandish originality,” said Tfca president Brian D Johnson. “And that’s what Guy Maddin and Evan Johnson have done with The Forbidden Room.
“Their film is a tour de force. The stellar casting, the visual wit, the narrative gymnastics — this is a cinematic cirque that leaves us amazed that it could even exist.”
