The Short Films of Kazik Radwanski + Q&A

We’re delighted to welcome Canadian filmmaker Kazik Radwanski to LSFF for a retrospective of his short film works.

A founder of MDFF (Medium Density Fibreboard Films), a production and distribution company that also functions as a film collective, Kazik has been heralded as one of the progenitors of the Toronto New Wave. Director of feature films Tower (2012) Heavy is the Hammer (2015) and Anne at 13,000ft (2019), Kazik regularly collaborates with actor Deragh Campbell, filmmaker Sofia Bohdanowicz and MDFF co-founder Dan Montgomery.

These short films the nuance of complicated characters in a singular minimal verité-style, often made on a lean budget. These intense studies are often almost uncomfortably intimate; a close-up of an anxious face, a day in the life of a labour-hewn hand and its owner, the morality of kindergarten friends when one of them gets into trouble. Kazik joins us for the screening in conversation.
