Desert Flight is “Best Sports Film” at Toronto Beaches Film Festival
The Toronto Beaches Film Festival has awarded Desert Flight with the prize of Best Sports Film. The Toronto Beaches Film Festival in its 9th year focuses on “fresh films” that resonate with the culture of the local Toronto community.
Showcased as a part of the fest’s HorseLife block, the film was displayed among two other works with equines as the heart of their subject. Desert Flight was the only sports themed film in the block and the only sports themed film in the festival to include animals.
Desert Flight’s Executive Director, Samia Staehle anchored the Q&A for the block of films and shared background of how the project came into being. A stream of the Q&A may be found at Toronto Beaches Film Festival HorseLife Q & A
