TIFF in Three Minutes: Mark Van de Ven

The first installation of the Short Cuts Canada programme kicks off at the Toronto International Film Festival later today, and one of the films playing tonight is Us Chickens by Toronto-based filmmaker Mark Van de Ven.

I had the chance to chat with Mark for a few minutes about his movie and what it means for him to be playing at TIFF this year. Here are his thoughts in three minutes:

(Yes, it was raining outside when we filmed this. Thanks to Mark for being a great sport and not minding a few raindrops on his head.)

Us Chickens plays as part of Short Cuts Canada programme 1 tonight at 9:30pm at the AMC Theatre and tomorrow at noon at Jackman Hall at the Art Gallery of Ontario. Check out the TIFF website for more ticketing details.
