The SESLER team is very proud to have sponsored two student awards this year and were honoured to present the awards to bright and talented filmmakers at their respective shows this month.
The 20th Annual Ryerson University Film Festival (RUFF ) took place over two evenings on May 5th & 6th and screened 21 short films that demonstrated the incredible range and production quality that the program is known for. Awards were handed out at the end of the second evening with agent Emily Nieves presenting the Best Director Award to Dean Gold (Shehita: A Yiddish Horror Story) and Hanna Jovin (Erika).
Earlier this week the team headed to TIFF Bell Lightbox for the 2017 Sheridan Screen Arts Awards and to see what their world-class student filmmakers had produced this year. The SESLER Award for Best Production Design was by presented by Vice President Karen Cohen to Sarah Gonyea for her work on Keeper.
