Earlier this year, I was lucky enough to work with some really talented people on a feature film called, Unhappy Happy. It’s a movie about Cancer and the different ways that everyone deals with mortality; though that quick description makes it sound like a cliché, I assure you this film is not.
The film was also featured in the 2013 Toronto Independent Film Festival (TOIndieFF) and given the ‘Best Micro-Budget Feature Film’ Award. From the director: “An unhappy corporate-team builder tries to invent a device to bring happiness to his terminally-ill brother with the help of a brilliant but damaged woman. Unhappy Happy asks the question: What is the nature of true happiness?”
The Daring Internertational Film Festival (DiffTO) is an independent, Toronto based film festival; highlighting new up-and-coming filmmakers from Canada and around the world. It runs from December 26-29th and has been running since 2007 (though back then it was called the Moving Image Film Festival).
Unhappy Happy will be screening at 10:20pm on Friday, December 27th ((Hey! That is tonight!)) at Measure theatre in the Annex, located at 296 Brunswick Avenue. Tickets are on sale for $11 ($10.20 plus taxes) and can be purchased at the door or in advance on guestlist.
Hope to see you there!
