Founded in 2001, the Kingston Canadian Film Festival (KCFF) is a charitable cultural organization that provides access to Canadian film in a dynamic festival setting. Transforming traditional and unconventional venues across Kingston’s historic downtown, KCFF is an annual whirlwind of movies and special events that spark curiosity, ignite discussion and provide a fresh experience of Canadian film. This year KCFF will take place March 3rd - 13th at locations throughout Kingston, Ontario as well as online.
Selected for the Canadian Shorts program, Forgotten is available from Saturday March 5th at 6:30pm. Canadian Shorts celebrates innovative voices with a particular focus on authentic stories whose directors’ forms transcend the barriers of genres and conventional storytelling techniques. The themes encompass several topics, such as: adolescent sexuality, single mothers, seniors’ loneliness, patriarchy, the consequences of war on children, family coherence, and the urban indigenous youth’s pride of their aboriginal identity.
As Forgotten is screening in digital format only, I was pleased to take part in Cross-Cuts, which aims to give viewers the opportunity to get to know the storytellers and creators of the films in the hybrid festival this year. My interview with moderator Ahmed Ismaiel Nour can be viewed after the Canadian Shorts program, or here on YouTube.
