TIFF Preview: ‘Interregnum’ – Nick Fox-Gieg

Last updated on September 2, 2010

The Toronto International Film Festival is literally just around the corner – next week, in fact. It’s high time that we started previewing the animated fare that’ll be screening at the fest. Online tickets are now closed, you’ll have to hit a box office You can order single tickets online (or call the box office) on Sept. 3 – that’s tomorrow – through till the festival starts, or you might be able to get last minute tickets the day of a screening. This series of posts headed ‘TIFF preview’ are just a slice of what’s on. Given our website name, I thought it’d be appropriate to focus on the animation ‘locals’ from the world’s largest small town, Canada.

‘INTERREGNUM’ – Nick Fox-Geig, English, 7 min.

“Vichy 1942. Nazi occupied France has a population under threat. One man’s attempt to thwart a corrupt system shapes a dramatic sequence of events. Loosely based on René Carmille, the first known computer hacker, animator Nick Fox-Gieg’s latest film synthesizes digital imaging software to tell a tale of humanity set right at the birth of the information age.”

    I believe the general public will be able to buy tickets online as of Sept 3rd. “Advanced” ticket ordering is only for donors but public sales should be online as well as at the box office as of Friday. Short programs are less likely to sell out but it does happen so it’s a good idea to get your tickets as early as you can.
