LOST AND FOUND:
Shot with the inaugural Canadian use of the ‘red’ camera, this old tale of love Lost and Found is eerily set in the backdrop of Toronto’s cold and dismal downtown TTC. In the wee hours of the night, strangers’ lives become intertwined after an engagement ring mishap.
Written by Alex McNally
Directed by Michael Kennedy
Starring: Ellen Dubin, Marcello Cabezas, Phil Williams and MJ Shaw

A story of jealousy and foodstuff. Kill Bill meets Aunt Jemima. Part mascot mirage, part Barbie ballet. A seemingly normal day in the fourth aisle turns into a battle of wits and wieners between two gallant grocery gals – over a man, a man named Billy, a man we dare not know. Will Beans get sauced by Spaghetti? Who is behind these schoolyard charades? How will this tale of canned good violence end? An exciting twist changes the picture, revealing The Truth – and mum’s the word.
