Dear MPI / Dark Sky: The audience at the Toronto International Film Festival has spoken and they would like you to put Jim Mickle's Stake Land on as many screens as possible at your earliest opportunity. Thank you.
The Toronto International Film Festival announced their award winners today and taking home the big guns - the Cadillac People's Choice Awards - were Tom Hooper's The King's Speech for the main festival prize and Jim Mickle's Stake Land for the Midnight Madness award. Though I missed King's Speech I can definitely say that the award to Stake Land is very well deserved, Mickle delivering on the promise of Mulberry Street with a picture that places him on a very short list of the best American horror directors today.
Taking other awards were Vincent Biron's Les Fleurs De L'Age (Best Canadian Short), Deborah Chow's The High Cost Of Living (Best Canadian First Feature), Denis Villeneuve's Incendies (Best Canadian Feature), Shawn Ku's Beautiful Boy (FIPRESCI Discovery Award), and Pierre Thoretton's L'Amour Fou (FIPRESCI Special Presentation).
