An honest, hard-working schoolteacher in a small Bulgarian town is driven to desperate measures to avoid financial ruin. This is an austere and well-composed film that builds dramatic tension through the main character’s shifting moral perspective. A disciplined performance by Margita Gosheva beautifully captures the specificity of time and place.

Preceded by the short film: Flash (Canada, 10 min)

A young woman on a bicycle, with a dangerous curiosity, takes an unexpected detour through a magical fantasy on her usual ride home from work.

Director: Ana Valine

Ana Valine’s darkly comic drama centres on mother/daughter con artists who just can’t catch a break. Seen through the eyes of 16-year-old Sammie (Paloma Kwiatkowski)—who lives with her pill-popping, alcoholic mom Marlene (Suzanne Clément)—this bittersweet journey leads us through dysfunction, love and addiction, before culminating with an unusual deliverance for this compelling pair. Winner, Best Director, Leo Awards 2014.

“When Oscar-winning editor Bob Murawski and his team at Grindhouse Releasing ask if you want to see a custom-curated, all-35mm collection of the rarest vintage trailers on planet Earth, you say "YES".

Prepare for a feature-length onslaught of the wildest, weirdest and most actionpacked face-rippers to have ever (dis)graced drive-in screens — all culled from GR’s vast archive of golden-age exploitation. Blaxploitation, sexploitation, horror, mondo, martial arts and more mix with mutant subgenres, freakish fiascos and other brain-bludgeoning, eye-blasting two-minute masterpieces not seen since the flea-ridden heydays of 42nd St."
