WAM September 8-9 Jordan Canning wins a national award from the Toronto International Film Festival

A much-lauded filmmaker, Jordan Canning directs short films, features films, and music videos.  She was a finalist in last year's CBC TV's Short Film Face-Off; she won a $500 award from TIFF, the Toronto International Film Festival, to work in their Talent Lab series; and on Wednesday evening, she was announced as the national winner of this year's RBC TIFF Emerging Filmmaker award, worth $15,000, for her short fim, Seconds.  I reached Jordan by phone on Thursday morning in Toronto, standing in line to go to a movie!
