TEC at TIFF 2019

We're excited to announce that six TEC-affiliated projects are included at this year's Toronto International Film Festival. Congratulations to all involved!


A Beautiful Day In The Neighborhood | Editor Anne McCabe (TEC Teacher)

Directed by Marielle Heller

“A jaded journalist (Matthew Rhys) reluctantly accepts an Esquire assignment to profile the children’s television host Fred Rogers (Tom Hanks), and encounters a profoundly empathetic world view that changes his life forever.”

And We Go Green | Assistant Editor Vanessa Trengrove (TEC Alum)

Directed by Fisher Stevens and Malcolm Venville

“Professional drivers on the international Formula E circuit — like Formula One, but with eco-friendly electric cars — race for victory across 10 cities, in this white-knuckle documentary from filmmaker Malcolm Venville, Oscar-winning director Fisher Stevens (The Cove), and producer Leonardo DiCaprio.”


Bad Education | Editor Louise Ford, Assistant Editor Katrina Pastore (TEC Alums)

Directed by Cory Finley

“Hugh Jackman, Allison Janney, and Ray Romano star in this fact-based dramedy directed by Cory Finley (Thoroughbreds), about an infamous school-larceny scandal that rocked Long Island in the early aughts.”


Dads | Assistant Editor Kayla Sklar (TEC Alum)


Directed by Bryce Dallas Howard

“Dads is a joyful exploration of contemporary fatherhood. The film draws on the testimonies of famous funnymen such as Judd Apatow, Will Smith, Jimmy Fallon, Neil Patrick Harris, Kenan Thompson, Jimmy Kimmel, and Ken Jeong. Their reflections are combined with portraits of non-celebrity dads from different parts of the world — Brazil, Japan, the United States — who are creating new models of patriarchy. It's funny, heartwarming, and also revealing. (Apparently even professional comedians resort to dad jokes.)”

Frankie | Assistant Editor Matt Yaple (TEC Alum)

Directed by Ira Sachs

“An aging actor (Isabelle Huppert) summons her idiosyncratic extended family on a fateful holiday, in Ira Sachs’ thoughtful dramedy co-starring Marisa Tomei, Brendan Gleeson, Jérémie Renier, and Greg Kinnear.”

The Lighthouse | Editor Louise Ford, Assistant Editor Katrina Pastore

Directed by Robert Eggers

“Shot on 35mm black-and-white film, this psychological thriller from Robert Eggers (The Witch) follows the slow descent into madness of two lighthouse keepers (Willem Dafoe and Robert Pattinson) on a remote New England island at the turn of the 19th century.”
