Abigail – After a group of would-be criminals kidnap the 12-year-old ballerina daughter of a powerful underworld figure, they keep her captive in an isolated mansion. All they have to do to is watch her to collect a $50 million ransom, but they soon discover, to their mounting horror, that she’s no normal little girl.

Irena’s Vow – When the Nazis invade Poland in 1939, nurse Irena Gut (Sophie Nélisse) is forced to work in support of the German war effort, assigned to run the home of a Nazi commandant (Dougray Scott).

The Beast – The year is 2044: artificial intelligence controls all facets of a stoic society as humans routinely “erase” their feelings. Hoping to eliminate pain caused by their past-life romances, Gabrielle (Léa Seydoux) continually falls in love with different incarnations of Louis (George MacKay). Playing in Toronto and Vancouver.

Sasquatch Sunset – In the misty forests of North America, a family of Sasquatches — possibly the last of their enigmatic kind — embark on an absurdist, epic, hilarious, and ultimately poignant journey over the course of one year.
