‘Les ecrivains, sont-ils betes?’! Canadian screenwriters often work alone, in isolation from one another & the film community at large, and are generally ignorant on the subject of each other’s work. It is my belief that there will never be a truly astonishing creative movement in Canadian cinema until its artists kick down the cultural, geographical, and systemic walls between us… and feel free to shamelessly excite one another. Off the clock, as well as on it. This is meant to be the national coffee room. Not mine. Have at it, creators. And, their sketchy friends.
