Princess Sparkly Butt and the Hot Dog Kid (Ages 6-12) 

(Brandon Lane / Canada / 60m) 

Based on a hit musical from The Toronto Fringe 2015, “Princess Sparkly Butt & The Hot Dog Kid” is an epic and absurd musical space quest about a tradition-defying Princess who discovers that she can control time with her butt. She must use her butt powers for good, not evil, if she hopes to save her planet from totally exploding. Enter Prince Doofmuncher (who comes to realize he identifies, not as a boy, but as a hot dog) to tag along on the mission with hopes of also locating an elusive warlock named Gary who specializes in turning people into hot dogs.

 

The Sunrise Storyteller

(Kasha Sequoia Slavner / Canada / 60m)

The Sunrise Storyteller follows the hero's journey of teenage filmmaker & social justice advocate, Kasha Sequoia Slavner, as she sets out for six months on her 16th birthday across the world in search of stories of hope and resilience that shine a light on what it means to be a global citizen and how we can all make a difference.

 

Kasha Sequoia Slavner is an 18 year old first-time documentary filmmaker who comes to the profession as a seasoned photographer, entrepreneur and social justice advocate for over a decade. Using her passion for visual storytelling to make the world a better place, she was recently selected as the recipient of the very first Kim Phuc Youth Award for Peace. At the age of 14 Kasha was the youngest member to join Canada’s longest-standing & only feminist peace organization, The Canadian Voice of Women for Peace. Since then, she has accompanied the organization as a youth delegate 5x times on their annual trip down to New York to The Commission on The Status of Women at the United Nations.
