'Break' wins Humber The /A Break Film Festival

Etobicoke, CA – Three graduating film and television production students will get an extra boost as they start their careers, thanks to William F. White International, Canada's largest and oldest provider of motion picture, television and theatrical equipment. 


White’s, as the company is familiarly known, is the sponsor for the “The/A Break,” Humber’s film festival highlighting the work of students in the Film and Television Production (FMTV) third-year directing class.


Students Aldo Quirvan, Nika Jaksic and Mitch Boudreau received equipment rental grants. Submissions were adjudicated by a panel of industry experts.


Twenty-two films were screened at the Lecture Theatre at Humber’s North Campus. Participants were required to direct films that were less than three minutes long. All had to have the title “The/A Break.”


From there, the limits were only the students’ imaginations.


“There were a few gems this year,” says Bruce Dale, White’s manager of education and training and one of the festival’s jurors. “You could tell how well-directed they were. There was a nice sense of maturity and some nice, subtle moments – the festival as a whole really demonstrates the success of the class.”
