There is an episode about this festival in our archives as we talk about the audience and all the great films we showcased at this event.

The theme of the October 2018 ACTION/THRILLER Film Festival in Toronto was “Self-Confrontation”.

All films were about someone having to confront themselves and who they are in order to get over an obstacle.

This is a personal response to this particular festival. Hours before a sold out crowd gathered together to watch the best of short films from around the world, I had a son. My wife gave birth to a 10LB baby boy, who was two weeks premature, down the street from the Carlton Cinemas at Princess Margaret hospital in downtown Toronto.

So for myself personally, this is a festival that I’m always going to remember. The day Daniel Ross Toffolo was born: November 1, 2018.

See you at the festivals.

Thriller Festival Testimonial – October 16 2018

The festival audience could speak freely and honestly and so their impressions were a joy to see. I was also over the moon to see that many in the audience seemed to have grasped and engaged with the main story arc but also with some of the sub-themes of the film. I took a risk by making a film that is somewhat open-ended and one which depends more on visual and musical communication rather than verbal communication. I am delighted to see that, for some in the audience, this paid off.
– Don Duncan, (Short Film, A Sign)

Thriller Festival Testimonial – October 11 2018

I think I saw the festival highlighted on FilmFreeway, if I remember correctly. I had just finished writing the script and wanted to kind of test the waters to see how it would be received. I’ve directed a number of film projects in the past and I may direct Gravel Heart this fall if I can raise the funds. And I think sending the script out for feedback is important before one spends a lot of time, money, and effort – yours and other peoples’ – shooting a script that isn’t working. 
– Michael Curtis (Gravel Heart, Short Screenplay)
