TIFF at York screening: Kate Melville's "Picture Day"
Sep 13, 2012, 2:30pm-4:30pm
Hot on the heels of its premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival, York brings a slice of of one of the most popular film festivals in the world to campus with an afternoon screening of Kate Melville's Picture Day.
Tatiana Maslany as Claire in Picture Day
Hailed by TIFF programmer Steve Gravestock as "one of the most charming and vibrant debut features by a Canadian filmmaker in recent memory", Kate Melville's Picture Day is a snapshot of a young woman in transition between high school and the adult world. Tatiana Maslany stars as Claire, an academic failure by day and rock concert fan by night. Her relationships with a nerd she used to babysit and a 33-year-old would-be rock star teach her hard lessons about the difference between sex, intimacy and friendship.
Director Kate Melville and producer Daniel Irons will present clips and discuss the movie.
Picture Day is Melville's directorial feature debut. She has worked as a story editor and scriptwriter for several television series, including Degrassi: The Next Generation, Being Erica and Endgame.
TIFF AT YORK is presented as part of the Department of Film's Norman Jewison Series, named for the Canadian film director and producer whose generous support has made this program possible, the series brings distinguished Canadian and international filmmakers, screenwriters, film historians and theorists to York meet with students and to present and discuss their work in a public forum open to the wider community.
