False Start
Sébastien Trahan, Canada, 2010, 7 min
Thanks to a small time machine, François can break up with his girlfriend over and over again, until he gets it just right. A quirky comedy that puts the “fool” into a “fool proof” plan.

Quadrangle

Amy Grappell, USA, 2010, 20 min
An unconventional look at two conventional couples who swapped partners and lived in a group marriage in the early 70s, this award-winning documentary is a fascinating portrait of “modern” love.

Epic Fail
Ragnar Agnarsson, Iceland, 2009, 13 min
When a sweet but solitary sound recordist falls into a chance adventure through the streets of Reykjavik, he isn’t at all prepared for the results. Based on a true story.

Flawed (please click on this highlighted title to see an introductory clip)
Andrea Dorfman, Canada, 2010, 12 min
In a world bent on perfection, it’s hard to accept someone’s faults, never mind your own. Filmmaker Andrea Dorfman beautifully animates her own story of finding love with someone new – and ultimately – herself.

Cheese
Vanesa Abajo Perez, Netherlands, 2009, 22 min
When Annika and Marouan meet, it’s love at first sight in the grocery aisles. But as a perfect evening winds down, reality throws them some unexpected obstacles on their way to a “Hollywood” ending.

Le Négociant

Joachim Weissmann, Belgium, 2009, 20 min
When a calm and collected bomb squad negotiator is sent into a convenience store holdup, neither he nor the hapless clerk he tries to counsel are prepared for the blowout in this high-stakes romantic comedy.

Presented in partnership with the Canadian Film Centre’s Worldwide Short Film Festival.

$6, $4 for students, seniors, Front Row passholders.
