Cameron Bailey Picks THE FAKE for the Mission List

Probably my favourite addition to the Toronto International Film Festival this year is Artistic Director Cameron Bailey's personal Tumblr. He opened his Tumblr sometime in 2012, but this year he's actively using the account to outline his own personal project: the Mission List. This list, chosen by Cameron, comprises of fifteen world premiere feature-length films, fiction or non-fiction, that are without distribution in Canada or the US. The reason why they've been singled out? Films on the Mission List directly fulfill the TIFF mission statement.

On August 6th, Cameron took a photo of the TIFF mission statement that he tacked above his desk, and posted it on Tumblr:

The Vanguard programme includes one of Cameron's Mission List selections -- THE FAKE. South Korean animator Yeon Sangho's sophomore feature was chosen
"For bringing religion, family and politics together in the most delicious way. For reminding us that good animation doesn’t have to be expensive. For ruthlessness."
Follow Cameron Bailey on Tumblr and Twitter at @Cameron_TIFF.

Further information about Yeon Sangho's The Fake can be found on the Festival website, as well as on the The Fake IMDB page. You can also watch the trailer on YouTube.
