As the Toronto International Film Festival winds down, the buzz surrounding Ryerson student films in the Short Cuts Canada programmes is just picking up.
For Ryerson grads Walter Woodman and Patrick Cederberg, their short film “Noah,” shot on a webcam for some $300, is hitting the big time online. Their film has been featured on major sites Gawker and the Huffington Post since going live on Monday.
By the end of the week, “Noah” amassed close to 400,000 views.
Jasmin Mozaffari, another recent Ryerson grad, opted not to have her film shown on TIFF’s YouTube channel, but “Fireworks,” which she shot across Ontario for upwards of $19,000, has been garnering a great reception at the festival. Its final screening was today at the TIFF Bell Lightbox.
The Ryersonian sat down with the three burgeoning filmmakers to chat about student film-making and the Canadian industry.
