I was thrilled that two of my favourite films from the Toronto After Dark Film Festival are award winners: Dead Snow and Strigoi. Congratulations to the filmmakers, and thank you to all the audience members who took the time to vote. Awards like these mean a lot to the filmmakers in terms of promoting their existing work and getting funding for future projects.
