Jay will share insights about his editing process and lessons from his dynamic career in post-production.
The arrangement of moving pictures is referred to as cinematic language. But it is the skillful combination of picture and sound that transports the audience into a story. Strong visual and audio storytelling immerses the viewer into a world where dragons fly through the sky in HOUSE OF THE DRAGON. It makes our worst nightmares come true in the dreadful depths of the Upside Down in STRANGER THINGS. Stay tuned to hear about the latest from the sound designers and editors behind these phenomenal shows.
Documentary has the power and versatility in exploring urgent social subject matters, yet it can also embrace an intimate first-person narrative, or even become an experimentation of cinematic craftsmanship. This year we are inviting the editors from three critically acclaimed Canadian documentaries. Whether it’s the sensory and cinematic collaboration between a filmmaker and a naturalist on Sable Island (GEOGRAPHIES OF SOLITUDE), the eye-opening testimony from the Coloured Hockey League about the untold history of racism in ice hockey (BLACK ICE) or the heart-wrenching revisit of her older brother’s death in BACK HOME, each of these films was made with powerful bravery and is sublime in its own way.

In a media landscape that favours rapid consumption and uniformity, Canadian cinema has become a vessel for diverse stories. RICEBOY SLEEPS portrays the struggles of immigration, while we embark on the search for the next stage of human evolution in CRIMES OF THE FUTURE. In VIKING, we find a reflection on the human condition in an attempt to explore Mars. Video rental nostalgia and adolescent cinephilia come together in the film I LIKE MOVIES. The editors from these riveting Canadian films will join us in a panel conversation.
