Which Emerging Canadian Filmmaker Should Go to the Next TIFF?

If you plan to attend the next Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF), which will be held from September 8 to 18, you may think of voting for the Canadian film from an emerging director you'd like to see.

Here's the list of the five films:

* Esther and Leib - Sean Wainsteim - (Toronto, Ontario).
A raw portrait of Esther and Leib, a couple who met when escaping Europe, as they reflect on the passing years and each other.

* My First Movie - Gabriel Taraboulsy - (Montréal, Quebec)
Tasked with making a video portrait of her family, a young filmmaker plants a hidden camera, capturing a vision of her family that is far different from anything she imagined.

* Next of Kin - Kara Blake - (Montréal, Quebec)
Documenting the parallel lives of two sisters surviving a long, cold winter in Montreal.

* The Revenge Plot - Jared Raab - (Toronto, Ontario)
After Matt and his friends are dissed in the schoolyard by a group of girls, they set to work on an elaborate and merciless plan for revenge.

* Saturday Night - Kaveh Nabatian - (Montréal, Quebec)
New Year's Eve. Boy meets girl. A film about unprotected sex, destiny and soul music.

The voting process already began. It goes on to June 30 until 11:59 PM EST.

The winning director receives $15,000 while the one in second place gets $10,000. The winner gets to have his film screened at the TIFF'S RBC Emerging Filmmakers Competition.
