Open Roof 2019: Giant Little Ones and TBA
Keith Behrman’s sophomore feature film, Giant Little Ones, is a heartfelt and intimate coming-of-age story about friendship, self-discovery, and the power of love without labels. After a drunken encounter alters the dynamics of their long-standing friendship, Franky (Josh Wiggins) and his childhood pal Ballas (Darren Mann) engage in a feud that serves as an outlet for their respective powder kegs of repressed feelings. Shot in and around Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, Canada, it stars rising talents Wiggins, Mann and Taylor Hickson alongside veteran actors Maria Bello, Kyle MacLachlan and Peter Outerbridge. “Giant Little Ones avoids the usual high school clichés, crafting an honest and nuanced 21st-century coming-out story.” (Winnipeg Free Press)
The Festival will be partnering with a range of different local food trucks throughout the summer, including Fidel Gastro’s, Buster's Sea Cove and Rancho Relaxo, which will be the perfect pairing for a refreshing beer from ORF’s long-standing partner, Amsterdam Brewery.
