Forsyth's fortune 

Walter Forsyth was one of 25 filmmakers chosen to be part of TIFF's Talent Lab.

Halifax's Walter Forsyth was one of 25 filmmakers chosen to be part of TIFF's Talent Lab (September 9-12), an intensive program where lucky participants spent time with heavy-hitting industry professionals, like Tilda Swinton, Miranda July and Brian DePalma.

On his way to a screening of Chris Rock's Good Hair, Forsyth found a few minutes to share highlights by email. "Danny Boyle was really fun and he talked about the shit scenes in Trainspotting and the one in Slumdog Millionaire---they use chocolate and peanut butter for the effect, so the little boy was covered in it and he said the kid smelled amazing and everyone was licking the chocolate off him."
