From the Press Release
Blood in the Snow Canadian Film Festival (BITS) is back for year five, in a new home, Cineplex Yonge & Dundas, with more movies that will not only curl your bloodline but unleash your intellectual nerve zone. Whatever that means. Basically we are here to show you the best in genre/horror films that our Canadian filmmakers are up to. And they are doozies. We have 9 features, 24 shorts, and over 14 mind-bending programs.
BITS runs November 24 to the 27 2016 at its new location, Cineplex Cinemas Yonge-Dundas in Toronto, ON.
We are opening our Festival with a documentary, our first! and any movie fan won’t want to miss this beauty, 24X36: A MOVIE ABOUT MOVIE POSTERS directed by Kevin Burke. This documentary, which premiered recently at Fantastic Fest, looks to explore how the beautiful movies posters from decades past gave way to the generic designs of today, and how fans and inspired artists have resurrected the art form.
Some other highlights, we have are 3 amazing World Premieres, Torin Langen’s silent horror anthology 3 DEAD TRICK OR TREATERS; the dark drama STREAMER by Jared Bratt and Vincent Pun; and the long-awaited feature INSPIRATION from Jason Armstrong.
Toronto premieres include Fantasia critical faves THE UNSEEN from Vancouver’s Geoff Rednap, and Toronto’s Felipe Rodriguez with his KIDNAP CAPITAL.
Mega fan-favourite, BITS SHORT FILM SHOWCASE, is back, featured primetime Saturday, and closes out with Canadian indie giant Black Fawn Films’ superb THE SUBLET by director John Ainslie.
Friday November 25, BITS is hosting three educational panels covering essential topics for indie filmmakers in distribution, funding, and legal issues for movie making.
On Saturday November 26, Film Writer and Critic Thom Ernst, is hosting “Making Movies the Canadian Way”, with a panel of Canadian horror legends that include George Mihalka (My Bloody Valentine), actor Art Hindle (Black Christmas, The Brood) and actresses Lisa Langlois (Happy Birthday to Me, Phobia, Deadly Eyes), Lesleh Donaldson (Happy Birthday to Me, Curtains, Deadly Eyes), and Heidi Von Palleske (Dead Ringers).
