Telefilm Canada’s Not Short on Talent market screenings back in Cannes for fifth edition

Telefilm Canada today announced the 39 short films that will screen at Cannes’ Marché du Film market from May 16 to May 19 as part of Not Short on Talent. Curated by Danny Lennon, founder of short film series Prends ça court, the shorts were selected from over 350 submissions and represent the freshest voices emerging from Canada. In addition to the screenings, filmmakers will participate in a “speed-dating” session on Saturday, May 16 at the Canadian Pavilion where they will have the opportunity to meet with esteemed industry delegates from the Sundance, Berlin and Rotterdam festivals.

These films join the previously announced Canadian short film in selection in the Directors’ Fortnight, Bleu Tonnerre from co-directors Jean-Marc E. Roy and Philippe David Gagné.

“Last Cannes we celebrated a record-breaking year with our veteran filmmakers, this year our focus is on the next generation of great talent coming out of Canada,” said Carolle Brabant, Telefilm’s Executive Director. “Not Short on Talent, which is now in its fifth year, showcases the diversity and vibrancy of our industry. We are honoured to represent these talented filmmakers and to help develop the feature-film stars of tomorrow.”
