Small Canvas, Big Heart

Actors always respond better once you've fed themI like Ingrid Veninger. I’m probably not supposed to say stuff like that, being all professional and everything, but that’s just how it is. I’ve really enjoyed her movies, “Only” and “Modra” (which opens tomorrow), and because Toronto is a pretty small town, all things considered, we’ve ended up at a few of the same functions. (We were both on the features panel for Canada’s Top Ten in 2009, though we didn’t know it at the time.) You should see her movies. They’re quite good.

Anyway, a couple of weeks ago, we had a long conversation about filmmaking, and the results were compressed into an interview in this week’s NOW. The online version of said interview is actually twice as long as the one in the paper — so go to it!

One thought on “Small Canvas, Big Heart”

  1. I’ll second the recommendation for Modra. It’s a lovely little movie.

    Pretty much Veninger’s entire extended family showed up for the premiere at TIFF, many of them in full traditional Slovakian garb. They took up about half the theater. 🙂
