Once again bringing the world of vanguard independent short filmmaking to Toronto’s lakeshore, Lakeshorts will feature homebred Canadian films such as Becoming Wigglesworth, a fun tale about taking a chance in life and doing what one really wants to do and Son, a poignant drama from Luxembourg which tells the story of a father who cannot come to terms with his son being in a coma.
