    From Stitch to Screen: Contemporary Canadian Costume Design (TIFF 11)

    I just moderated a panel on something I knew absolutely nothing about until two weeks ago when I began to delve into the job of a costume designer in film.

For a while she disappeared into the corporate Viacom in Toronto, or would reappear wearing various different hats. Now she has been appointed interim CEO of the Academy of Canadian Cinema and Television, replacing S...
