Well, the big day is finally here! Tonight, at 8 PM EST, Canada will have 24 hrs to vote for their favourite competing film in CBC's Short Film Face Off! I had a chance to talk with Jeff Campagna from The Digital Journal about the competition and its impact on emerging film talent from Canada. Check out the article 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.
