Snow is a new indie feature film set in Toronto, adapted from Benjamin Rivers's graphic novel of the same name, about a love affair between a young woman and her neighbourhood of Queen Street West, which is being transformed by development.
The movie premieres tonight at the Revue Cinema in Toronto, and can be had as a DRM-free download right now in a deluxe package that includes a download of the graphic novel, a game adaptation, and the soundtrack. You can also watch the whole film online for free.
Filmmaker Ryan Couldrey writes,
There are no male leads, and no romantic subplots. This is a love story between the lead character and her neighbourhood, Queen West.
Money made in (at least) the first 90 days is going to be donated to the Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation in Toronto. They're on board and their social media coordinator has a brief cameo in the first scene.
Much of the film takes place in a fictional bookstore, which we filmed at Bakka Phoenix with Chris and Ben's blessing.

Batman never roars into the Gotham night without his utility belt. James Bond never embarks on a world-saving mission without stopping to see Q and picking up a few helpful gadgets. The world can be a challenging, even occasionally dangerous place — and that's never been more apparent than in the past few months. So […]
Vacuum cleaners have come a long way since those giant bulky bag behemoths that used to take up most of the hall closet. Machines that handle that kind of cleanup now have to be more than just carpet sweepers. They need to be small, powerful, convenient, and capable of handling a variety of big and […]
Everybody's got a story. Unfortunately, not everybody has the tools to tell that story the right way. That's especially true for someone looking to produce their first screenplay. Just as with any type of writing, penning a script for the screen has a set of rules all its own. Understanding that structure, as well as […]
