Keep an eye out for Canadian-filmmaker Alexia Dalla Rosa’s directorial debut I Hope You Know — an upcoming LGBTQ short film entirely self-funded by its director.
The story is set in Northern Ontario and revolves around its protagonist Sara; we watch her struggle after losing her boyfriend, Thomas, to suicide.
Sara is accompanied by Thomas’s childhood friend, Jane, at his funeral. The two girls must rely on each other to get through their grief, insecurities, and find answers to questions they both hold.
Aspiring female filmmakers will feel encouraged learning that Rosa’s production crew was primarily comprised of women — including the director, writer, director of photography and editor.
We look forward to seeing your film in the summer, Alexia. Congratulations.

You know how Eminem is the Rap God? Well up North there in Canada, Curt's referred to as Toronto's "Film God." Studying mathematics and physics, his switch to filmmaking has given him a unique eye where he sees how things are traditionally done in the industry and goes "Um.. WTF." With a focus on results, and not just "festivals", Curt has taken cues from the startup world as well as deep psychology to help other independent filmmakers get connected, get funded, and make money with their films.
