2014 TOfilmfest Top 20 (anticipated)

“THE LITTLE DEATH” (2014 feature film directed by Josh Lawson)Once again, we're very happy to be invited by Peter Howell, movie critic for the Toronto Star, to be a part of his annual Chasing the Buzz poll — a panel of critics/programmers/film-buffs name the film they are most looking forward to at the festival.

“WHIPLASH” (2014 feature film directed by Damien Chazelle)This will be our 7th year, and we are being asked to provide just one film title, and just one sentence to state the reason for our choice.
