Doubles With Slight Pepper won the Telefilm Canada PITCH THIS! competition at the Toronto International Film Festival a few days ago.
Needless to say, this is a massive push forward for the project. There were 5 other incredible projects, so it means a lot to come out on top.
The award comes with $10,000 which is amazing. The money is great, but the real prize is getting the project noticed by the industry, which has already happened.
