TIFF Next Wave Film Festival- Fat Kids Rule The World

Saturday, May 12, is our most action-packed day at the TIFF Next Wave Film Festival, featuring tons of screenings and events. One of the screenings I’m really looking forward to is Fat Kid Rules the World, already an Audience Award winner at SXSW. It starts at 8:30 pm. What’s particularly exciting about this screening is that the director Matthew Lillard and lead actor of this fantastic coming-of-age story, Jacob Wysocki will be in attendance for a Q&A after the film!

For free in the gallery at the TIFF Bell Lightbox we’ll be running the TIFF Next Wave Set Design Challenge, where you can watch as groups from across the Toronto area compete to build their own film sets. From 5 pm onward you can even interact with the completed sets.

There’s lots more so be sure to check out http://tiff.net/nextwave for all the details on our lineup for the festival.
