The Top Five Canadian Films to see at TIFF 2013

The newest film from TIFF darling Ingrid Veninger ("i am a good person/i am a bad person"), "The Animal Project" follows Leo (Aaron Poole), a creatively frustrated acting teacher plagued by personal and professional problems, who revives a childhood project (involving bunny suits and free hugs) in an effort to change the way things are going for himself and those around him. Partly improvised and built around its actors (who were actually cast before the script was written), "The Animal Project" was envisioned by Veninger as a sort of cinematic "leap of faith." If you're looking for something a little different, take a chance on "The Animal Project."
