AluCine 2020, Toronto

Cine Norte / Cine Sur

October 21st – October 28th

For our 20th anniversary, aluCine has chosen to focus on some of the country’s most prominent and compelling female filmmakers. And with that in mind, we’ve decided to celebrate some of Canada’s most exciting up-and-coming women in the industry.

These artists have not only carved out a space for themselves within a film culture that has not always supported women and gender-neutral individuals but are also paving the way for those to come. Some work within existing funding bodies to expand the diversity and scope of what gets subsidized, while others have opted for a more lo-fi DIY approach to make sure their voices – and often the marginalized voices within their communities – are heard.
