It’s important to support the homegrown arts whenever possible…but it’s a hell of a lot easier when the desire behind the scenes catches up to the material on the screen. With the 2017 edition of the Canadian Film Fest getting ready to kick off at their new home at the Scotiabank Theatre on March 21st through the 25th here in Toronto the best that Canadian filmmakers have to offer is getting up on the big screen. At first glance this looks like it might be the best lineup that this festival has ever produced in their entire existence and thanks to our friends over at the festival we have some pairs of tickets to the opening night film to give to you.
#AnAmericanDream from writer/director Ken Finkleman is the tale of a cheerfully gullible college graduate who embarks on a journey into adulthood that whisks him into the insanity of 21st century America, where he is beset by a parade of oversexed women, gun-crazed zealots, paranoid government agents, fundamentalist preachers and reality TV hucksters.
A hilarious kick off from an icon of Canadian comedy like Finkleman this movie promises to be a memorable way to launch this festival and your chance to win simply couldn’t be easier.
E-mail us at [email protected] with your full name, ‘Canadian Film Fest’ in subject header and the answer to the following question. Ken Finkleman came to prominence in Canadian productions with a well received satirical comedy show that shares the same name as a recent HBO show. Name that show.
