Big congratulations go to B.H YAEL for winning MOST ORIGINAL FILM BY A LOCAL FEMALE DIRECTOR of the Toronto Urban Film Festival (TUFF), for her film NO LIES.

The Toronto Urban Film Festival (TUFF), North America’s largest commuter film festival, celebrated its successful 10th edition with an awards ceremony hosted at the Gladstone Hotel where over $20,000 in cash and prizes was awarded to talented filmmakers from Canada and across the globe.

The jury’s choice for MOST ORIGINAL FILM BY A LOCAL FEMALE DIRECTOR was made easy by this mesmerizing memoir that employs an arsenal of animated techniques and elements to bring a girl’s diary to life. This perfectly succinct short about Dad’s double life and his daughter’s anguish over having to keep his secrets, is a raw, gut-wrenching and earnest exercise in hypocrisy. YAEL receives a 1-Year Associate Membership and a $1,200 Programming Pass from Women in Film and Television Toronto. 2 Benefactor Memberships to the Inside Out LGBT Film Festival for her film NO LIES!

“It was a remarkable year with tremendous talent,” says Sharon Switzer TUFF cofounder and Director and, President of PATTISON Outdoor. “These were difficult decisions but the acclaim is well deserved. We thank our dedicated filmmakers for their contributions and continual support over the past ten years and look forward to another ten years of TUFF.”
