Congratulations to @bbblackbirdfilm

 Blackbird was selected for the Best Canadian First Feature at TIFF! This comes after being previously being selected as “Essential Viewing” for TIFF, and its selection of the Next Wave Committee! This amazing film truly deserves all this recognition and more. So big congratulations to Jason Buxton, David Miller, Marc Almon, Michael Buie, Alex Ozerov, and, of course Connor Jessup. Can’t wait to see it again in November!

Update:

Blackbird shares this award with Antiviral, a film by Brandon Cronenberg. The award comes with a $15,000 prize, both Jason Buxton and Cronenberg get $15,000.
