The Originals
Experimental is a word that would normally make a moviegoer squirm in his theater seat. The very thought of viewing something out of the ordinary either brings a certain discomfort or grotesque amounts of excitement. Films like these give viewers a jolt from the standard mainstream and even independent fare they’re used to. They’re bold, daring, and more importantly, original.
In its 7th year, CinemaOne Originals Festival shakes things up as it runs from Nov. 9 to 15 at the Shangri-La Plaza Cineplex. It brings together an eclectic group of veteran and newbie independent filmmakers whose works range from horror romcoms and idyllic explorations to very intimate experimental pieces.

The People Speak

"You know what nobody understands about certain kinds of low pay public service work, every now and then you get put a fucking stake in a bad guy’s heart. I’m not supposed to talk about that when I visit third grade classes for career day and it doesn’t get you very far in the country club locker room, but it’s hard to beat when you actually get to do it."

"As Harold took a bite of a Bavarian sugar cookie, he finally felt as if everything was going to be ok. Sometimes, when we lose ourselves in fear and despair, in routine and constancy, in hopelessness and tragedy, we can thank God for Bavarian sugar cookies. And, fortunately, when there aren’t any cookies, we can still find reassurance in a familiar hand on our skin, or a kind and loving gesture, or subtle encouragement, or a loving embrace, or an offer of comfort, not to mention hospital gurneys and nose plugs, an uneaten Danish, soft-spoken secrets, and Fender Stratocasters, and maybe the occasional piece of fiction. And we must remember that all these things, the nuances, the anomalies, the subtleties, which we assume only accessorize our days, are effective for a much larger and nobler cause. They are here to save our lives. I know the idea seems strange, but I also know that it just so happens to be true. And, so it was, a wristwatch saved Harold Crick."
