Vibe105 reviews the Vaughan International Film Festival selections by Foster Wilson

Toronto’s Vibe105, official media partner of the Vaughan International Film Festival, provided a comprehensive review of VFF 2019 on its Full Disclosure blog, beginning with a wrap up of the Day 1 screenings. The award-winning short film MADE PUBLIC, hailing from the U.S., kicked off the festival.

The screening begins with Foster Wilson’s Made Public, which teaches those about to tie the knot what NOT to do before your wedding. The film follows Dave, a groom whose doubts about getting married blow out of proportion when he posts a Facebook poll asking whether to go through with saying ‘I do.’ The film has garnered four nominations from the VFF Awards for Best Film, Director, Actor, and Actress. The film features a bounty of tracking shots that’s sure to make any film enthusiast swoon. Accompanied by a moody score, Made Public takes its time building tension, refusing to reveal the story to us until six minutes in. Eventually, its comedic timing and light emotional punch makes the tension worth it, and the release even more exhilarating. - Benjamin Akpan
