Filmmaker Updates: Sol Friedman, Toni Zhang

Sprockets, the Toronto International Film Festival for Children & Youth, will take place April 5-11 at their new home, the Bell Lightbox.  April (like Spring) seems like a long ways away, but the Sprockets trailer is already on YouTube and programming has been announced.

Congratulations to Sol Friedman, whose film Junko’s Shamisen will appear in the Generation Gap programme at Sprockets. Friedman won the Movieola Best Short Film or Video Award for this film at our fest in 2010.  Kudos too to Toni Zhang – her delightful film Lost Places was part of our Drawing on the Art of Hand & Foot youth presentation last year and will screen at Sprockets in their Future Frames programme.  School groups can book their tickets now and sales for the general public will begin in late March.
