Your favourite Festival programmer who is not you:
Magali Simard, because as a Short Cuts Canada programmer she, and Alex Rogalski, discover and nurture tomorrows great directors and producers! Plus she has finesse and panache to burn!

The strangest place you’ve ever watched a film:
Watching Bellflower in a back alley in Asheville, North Carolina, with Mother Medusa, the post-apocalyptic car from the film, firing its flamethrowers when the screening ended at midnight.

What do you do for the rest of the year when you aren’t programming for the Festival?
Work with directors and producers on distribution and marketing strategy; or spend time at the cottage building things out of wood.
