We already watch movies while we’re flying, so why not attend a film festival? Well, next time you take a flight on Air Canada, you can do exactly that.
Each year, Air Canada’s inflight magazine enRoute celebrates Canadian talent in film-making by hosting a shorts film festival. The films cover a variety of subject matters from love and music to politics and fantasy. Last week I had the opportunity to attend an awards ceremony where judges like actors Jay Baruchel, Alison Pill and Callum Keith Rennie awarded this year’s Best Short, Achievement in Direction, Achievement in Cinematography, Achievement in Documentary and People’s Choice for favourite film. We also got to see six of the films that were up for consideration which was a real treat.
The Best Short was awarded to Fernand-Philippe Morin-Vargas for Noeud Papillon:
It’s not very often that we get to celebrate Canadian talent, especially not on such a scale and with such exposure so I was excited to learn about this festival. The films will be available for viewing on all Air Canada flights as well as online so take a few minutes and check them out!
