Opening Film:

The opening film was the Canadian premiere of the comedy Qualcosa di Nuovo or Something New.  It was directed by Cristina Comencini. This humorous comedy centres on Maria (Paola Cortellesi) who is spontaneous and naïve – and quite addicted to men. She meets a man who falls into her bed – he is charming, sensitive and mature; however, he is only nineteen years of age.  Hence, the laughs begin. Italian actress Paola Cortellesi was well received at the film festival and she received the ICFF 2017 Best Actress Award. Cortellesi said “I’m very humble and sincerely happy in receiving so much love by all Canadians and by the Italian community in this beautiful Country”.

Innis College, University of Toronto, The Cinema Studies Institute, and
The Cinema Studies Student Union (CINSSU) Present
An Evening with Writer/Director INGRID VENINGER,
Universal Studios Screenwriter-in-Residence
And the CAST of THE ANIMAL PROJECT
INNIS TOWN HALL (2 Sussex Avenue)

As part of its Universal Studios Screenwriter-in-Residence Program, the public is invited to a special evening with writer/director Ingrid Veninger, and the cast of her most recent feature film, THE ANIMAL PROJECT, which had its premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival, and has been traveling festivals around the globe.

“The evening will be about process”, says Ingrid Veninger, “we’ll screen THE ANIMAL PROJECT, but beforehand I’ll take the audience through the experience of my first meetings with the actors, and the development of the screenplay, which was very particular to this project.”

THE ANIMAL PROJECT is a dark comedy centered on a single father, his teenage son, and large furry animals, which tells the story of a Toronto theatre director who attempts to push a group of eager young performers out of their comfort zones.

This event will take place in the newly renovated Innis Town Hall, a 200-seat state-of-the-art cinema located in the heart of University of Toronto’s campus. Following extensive renovations, totaling $3.5 million, this will be the first public event hosted in this revitalized space.

The film cast from THE ANIMAL PROJECT will participate in an interactive introduction, and a discussion will follow the screening, moderated by Cinema Studies Professor and Programmer, Kay Armatage.
