With over 350 submissions this year alone, the global industry demand for the festival is clear.
As one of the film fest capitals of the world, Toronto is a hotbed of independent film riches. In addition to the many genre and cultural based festivals, the Female Eye Film Festival has contributed to the film scene since 2001 and provided a much-needed platform that launches female-directed projects from both new voices and established filmmakers. With over 350 submissions this year alone, the global industry demand for the festival is clear.
An intriguing selection from the 2015 schedule comes in the form of the Yukon-set documentary “All the Time in the World” directed by Suzanne Crocker. Seeking to explore what happens to our connections to our family and our environment when modern technology is stripped away, Crocker relocates with her husband and children to an electricity-free cabin in the Yukon for nine months. The result is an intimate and personal story of what can happen when the concept of time is regulated back to light and seasons instead of smartphone notifications.
Beautifully shot without an external crew, “All the Time in the World” is a testament to the possibilities of off-the-grid filmmaking.
“All the Time in the World” screens Wednesday June 17th from 3:30-5pm as part of the Foreign Short & Canadian Documentary program.
Venue: Small World Theatre, Studio 101, 180 Shaw Street
