Forgotten Premieres at COMMFEST 2015



We are extremely pleased that Forgotten, a documentary film about British Home Children in Canada, had its world premiere this past weekend at the 10th annual COMMFFEST festival in Toronto.


The screening was attended by director Eleanor McGrath, executive producer Ivan Verlaan, as well as many of the film’s subjects and participants. The response was overwhelming and the film walked away with the “Making a Difference” award.


Forgotten is currently scheduled to screen at several upcoming festivals including the La Femme International Film Festival in Los Angeles; the AGH BMO World Film Festival in Hamilton; and the Crystal Palace International Film Festival in London, England.

Sector Sarajevo in The Globe And Mail

Sector Sarajevo


John Doyle on Sector Sarajevo in The Globe today:


The doc, finely crafted by filmmakers Barry Stevens and David York, gives us a sense of the carnage and barbarism and what the Canadians had to do in order to survive and to help. Some of the details make your hair stand on end, but this is a must-see, as a reminder of what happened then and of the effect it had on the Canadians who were there, trying so hard to be peacekeepers.


Sector Sarajevo premiers tomorrow night (Sunday Nov. 10th) on History.

Charity Spot Takes Silver

Every year The Globe & Mail hosts a Canada-wide advertising competition called Young Lions. Creatives under the age of 28 compete in print, interactive and film categories, and the winners are sent to Cannes to compete internationally.


This year, Visual Inclination directing team Ivan Verlaan and Julian De Zorzi decided to throw their hat in the ring. They were given a brief for the Stephen Lewis Foundation and had 48 hours to create a 30 second spot from scratch.


After an intense two days of writing, casting, shooting and editing, they produced a spot that speaks to the responsibilities left on the shoulders of AIDS orphans.


The jury saw how this would speak to the Stephen Lewis Foundation’s audience and awarded the spot with silver.
