Nova Scotian films get into TIFF 

Toronto International Film Festival announces NS line-up

The 2011 Toronto International Film Festival is rolling out screening line-ups and has announced pictures from Nova Scotia filmmakers will show at the event, running September 8-18 in Hogtown.

Cory Bowles 16-minute short film Heart of Rhyme will get its world premiere at TIFF. It's described as follows:

"When Saxton received a heart transplant, he knew there would be side effects until his recovery was complete. What he didn't expect was the sudden urge to tag his name on mailboxes, drop rhymes in the park, and the ability to witness rhythm come alive around him. When he decides to solve the mystery behind this phenomenon, he discovers a whole new meaning to following your heart."

Also showing as part of TIFF's Special Presentations and in its North American premiere is Mike Clattenburg's Afghan Luke. Variously described as a comedy and drama, here's how TIFF encapsulates its plot:

"Disheartened when his story about Canadian snipers possibly mutilating corpses in Afghanistan is buried, Luke (Nick Stahl) quits his job but is even more determined to return to Afghanistan to get the real story. Starring Nicolas Wright, Stephen Lobo, Vik Sahay and Steve Cochrane."

Here's the trailer:
