With one day remaining till the final voting for CBC's Short Film Face Off, The Oakville Beaver's Scott Stewart has published a piece in which I discuss filmmaking, detail surrounding the production of The Beard, and the films involvement in CBC's Short Film Face Off. You can read the piece in its entirety here.
The Beard, representing Toronto, will be in competition against two other Canadian short films! With $40,000.00 in film funding and production services on the line, it's going to be one heck of a competition, and Canada picks the winner!
Voting begins on Saturday, August 31, 2013 at 8 PM EST for a 24 hr period. During that time, you can vote for your favorite film here or by phone at 1-877-876-3636.
Written and directed by Yaz Rabadi, The Beard tells the story of an elderly Sikh (Sam Moses) who has been victimized as a result of his racial appearance, and how he struggles to deal with his given circumstances in the aftermath of the violent attack.
