Hey Toronto! The second edition of the TIFF Next Wave Film Festival begins next Friday, February 15 and runs through the weekend at TIFF Bell Lightbox. The festival is "steered by the TIFF Next Wave Committee," according to a prepared statement, "an advisory committee made up of 12 youths dedicated to bringing quality film programming and film-related events to youth across the city."

During the weekend, you can catch screenings of 5-25-77Bushido Sixteen; the first ever fully Canadian film to be shot in Stereoscopic 3D Dead By Dawn 3D; Ireland's Earthbound; a documentary about a fine arts high school in L.A., Fame High; a U.S. comedy about a young girl who takes her parents hostage after they miss her jump-rope competition Family Weekend; Spanish ghost comedy Ghost Graduation; Canadian drama Molly Maxwell;  South African surfing drama, set against the backdrop of the Apartheid, Otelo Burning; and Glee's Chris Colfer in Struck by Lightning

As well, there will be a John Hughes marathon featuring some of his greatest output: Some Kind of Wonderful, Pretty in Pink, The Breakfast Club, Ferris Bueller's Day Off and Sixteen Candles

Around the Internet:
  • Shutup Man

    Sorry to be pedantic, but it should read "Dead Before Dawn 3D", not Dead By Dawn.

    "Spanish ghost comedy Ghost Graduation"

    Looked very entertaining.

    "South African surfing drama, set against the backdrop of the Apartheid, Otelo Burning"

    Seems more serious then I expected.

    "5-25-77"

    Looks more fun then Super 8 (2011).

    "Struck by Lightning"

    Maybe I should rewatch Election (1999) before watching this.
    Thanks for the list & trailers, Mr Mack.
