TIFF Midnight Madness 2017: Meet Director Robin Comisar

The Toronto International Film Festival  (TIFF) has the unique distinction of both celebrating new filmmakers as well as being the traditional platform to kick off established Hollywood’s seemingly endless awards season. As an attendee in 2017 you can take in major releases like George Clooney’s Suburbicon (good luck getting a ticket) as well as edgier fare such as the 20 year old Midnight Madness program that has a reputation for mixing genres and styles by emerging and slightly more established artists.

New Machine’s Ana Stefanovic writes about the 11 filmmakers being showcased as part of the Midnight Madness section, with this article featuring Robin Comisar and his short film Good Choice (pictured).

TIFF runs from September 7 to 17. Click here for the full lineup.
