Adding complexity to his quest is where Kiko and his fiancé Cody choose live: a tiny bible belt town in southern Alberta, population 956.

Interview with Filmmaker Iqbal Chand Malhotra (LIFE AFTER DEATH? – SUBHASH CHANDRA BOSE)

Matthew Toffolo's Summary

LIFE AFTER DEATH? – SUBHASH CHANDRA BOSE, 50min., India
Directed by Iqbal Chand Malhotra
The most intriguing enigma of modern India is the disappearance of her most dynamic and daring freedom fighter, ‘Netaji’ Subhash Chandra Bose, in the middle of August, 1945. Though the goal of a free India was achieved in 1947, there was no trace of the man who had wanted this most passionately through armed struggle; inspired millions to contribute to his war effort and enthused thousands to join his Indian National Army, to fight alongside the Japanese against the British-Indian Forces in South and South-East Asia. Even 77 years later, the mystery stands unresolved with important documents in Russia, France, the UK, and even in India, hidden in top-secret classified archives. The conflicting stories and accounts of this disappearance remain and so do the myriad theories that point to diverse directions.

Interview with Filmmaker Daniel Young (SPOONS)

Matthew Toffolo's Summary

SPOONS, 3min., USA, Comedy
Directed by Daniel Young
Spoons. What more is there to say?

https://instagram.com/skinnyguyproductions

Get to know the filmmaker:

1. What motivated you to make this film?

Spoon was an incredible script to read. Ed and I had been looking to collaborate again before we had officially teamed up, and it just all came together. I wanted to do fun, and strange in a way people hadn’t seen before

2. From the idea to the finished product, how long did it take for you to make this film?

When I got my hands on the script it was not long. The process from script to final product is pretty streamlined for us. Once we get a project we like, it usually only takes a few months before the film is ready to be seen.

3. How would you describe your film in two words!?

Strange fun

Interview with Filmmaker Mark Oguschewitz (THE DEAD THAT LIVE)

Matthew Toffolo's Summary

THE DEAD THAT LIVE, 9min., USA, Drama/Horror
Directed by Mark Oguschewitz
A lonely zombie must fight for his life during the zombie apocalypse.

Get to know the filmmaker:

1. What motivated you to make this film?

Writer/Producer Mario Mabe brought me the 7-page script and I immediately fell in love with the last page and a half.

This is where the script turned into something different – it showed some real humanizing elements still present within the zombie character. Unlike most zombie films, this script took the zombie’s perspective and challenged us to understand him. The zombie wasn’t just a mindless body walking around trying to kill people. I thought that was interesting and wanted to explore that idea more.

2. From the idea to the finished product, how long did it take for you to make this film?

It took about a year and a half to complete. But…

Interview with Filmmaker Suzanne Marie Moreau (BLOOD BUDDIES)

Matthew Toffolo's Summary

BLOOD BUDDIES, 12min., Canada, Drama
Directed by Suzanne Marie Moreau
A friend in need is a friend indeed – or are they? Two best childhood friends go to their first summer camp together – and it tears them apart.

Get to know the filmmaker:

1. What motivated you to make this film?

I felt motivated to tell the female experience of puberty including that momentous occasion, a first period, since it seemed to be missing from the screen. I looked into ‘first period’ stories and discovered an online trend was shaping up among today’s generation. It made sense emotionally and theoretically to try to capture the experience and how it coincided with friendships in a sensitive, vulnerable way with a mature perspective that drew from my own remembered feelings.

2. From the idea to the finished product, how long did it take for you to make this film?

My first…
