A remarkable hat-trick

Denis Villeneuve's Incendies has completed an amazing hat-trick of best film awards on the film festival circuit. After winning best Canadian feature at Toronto (TIFF) and Calgary (CIFF), the film has now been crowned as top Canadian film at the Vancouver International Film Festival (VIFF).

It is indeed a worthy honor as Incendies is a well crafted film that packs a wicked emotional kick. The film is best seen without knowing the story before hand thereby letting the work reveal itself in small doses. Hopefully, the awards make it easier for Canadians to see this film in cinemas throughout the country and also paves the path for foreign distribution.
