NSI Drama Prize film Chopin's Heart from BJ Verot and Melva McLean

NSI Drama Prize film Chopin’s Heart (pictured) from BJ Verot and Melva McLean, as well as Ingrid and the Black Hole from Leah Johnston (NSI Drama Prize) and Reset from Jeremy Lutter (NSI Drama Prize) will screen as part of Telefilm’s Not Short on Talent program at Cannes this year.

Based on the short story In-Sook by Emily Givner, Chopin’s Heart is a tale of two lovers attracted to each other in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Ingrid and the Black Hole is about two children who discover a black hole and imagine what it would be like to travel through time.

Reset is a short film about the future of love.

Not Short on Talent is a curated showcase of new Canadian short films at the Marché du Film that runs parallel to the film festival.
