<13 Canadian Films for Halloween>

(October 30, 2014 - Toronto, Ontario) Canadian horror movies rarely make it onto the curriculum for Canadian cinema studies, but nevertheless they occupy an important place in the canon. From The Mask, released 53 years ago, to the Resident Evil franchise, Canadian horror movies have broken new ground and box office records. The Mask was the first Canadian feature to be successfully released in the U.S.; Resident Evil: Afterlife is now the highest-grossing Canadian movie worldwide. And while Canadian horror might be the orphan child of academia, it lives and thrives on the Web. There are multiple sites dedicated to the genre and its fan base appears alive and well, at least in cyberspace.Arrow

The duo is launching a campaign via crowdfunding platform Indiegogo to raise funds to make the coming-of-age story. “This story was born of my interest in cross-cultural and cross-generational fears, assumptions and misunderstandings that often accompany any kind of diaspora, but at its core, it’s about a daughter’s search for her father while finding her own voice,” said Fleming.Arrow
