Stiffed is based on how so many good shorts films get rejected from TIFF because it is the 3rd biggest fest in the world behind CANNES and Sundance - u can only get into TIFF if you're Natalie Portman and you just directed your first short film staring Ryan Gosling.
Adam won for DOWN BOB, this is a great short!!
Bob Down always wanted to help people. But no one ever wanted his help. Then he met Lucy and his heroic deeds soon crossed the line and all hell broke loose.
