Vincent Varga’s Imagine & Kurt Harder’s My Name Is Clarence

Wednesday, February 23rd, 2011

The Calgary International Film Festival has a program called Youth By Youth Cinema showcasing the next generation models of filmmakers. While attending the 2010 YYC program, I caught two films that really stood out for me — Vincent Varga‘s Imagine and Kurt Harder‘s My Name Is Clarence. Both these directors are in high school and both of them ended up winning top honours in the YYC program. (Imagine won Best Live Action and My Name is Clarence won the Youth Renegade award.)

Needless to say, I am extremely impressed (and kind of intimidated) by their raw talent.

And now you can be too!

The full lineup for the $100 Film Festival is up and CGY will be screening!

CGY will screen on Saturday March 5th during the final night of the festival at 7pm at the Plaza Theatre in Calgary.
