Get Exposed to Canadian Short Films this Fall

Bravo!FACT Presents now airing on Bravo!, Citytv, and A-Channels across the country!

(Toronto – September 20) Bravo!FACT is excited to announce that beginning this fall Bravo!FACT Presents will air on Bravo!, Citytv Vancouver, Citytv Toronto, and four A-Channels (Barrie, London, Ottawa and Victoria) in prime time. These artistic gems cover a range of subject matter and styles. Sand animation to opera; modern dance to short dramas – the variety is endless, as is the creative talent in Canada.

The fall season launches with Burnt Toast: three broadcast half-hours featuring eight comedic operatic vignettes written by Kids in the Hall editor Dan Redican with music composed by Alexina Louie and directed by Academy Award-nominated Larry Weinstein. Produced by Rhombus Media and marblemedia, this CBC/Bravo!FACT award-winning show includes stars Colm Feore, Leah Pinsent, Paul Gross, Mark McKinney, Scott Thompson, Colin Mochrie, Jessica Holmes, Liane Balaban, and Seán Cullen and features the Esprit Orchestra and the voices of Isabel Bayrakdarian, Michael Colvin, Jean Stilwell, Russell Braun, Joel Katz and more.

Burnt Toast follows the arc of the modern relationship from a darkly comedic viewpoint to tell stories of unrequited love and courtship, the various phases of marriage, and the disintegration and end of a relationship. Characters spontaneously break into grand operatic song to express even the most mundane thought – with extremely funny results.

Burnt Toast will air in three episodes of Bravo!FACT Presents on:

Bravo! September 22, 29 and October 6 (7:30 – 8 pm ET, 4:30 – 5 pm PT)
Citytv Toronto & Citytv Vancouver September 23, 30 and October 7 (7 – 7:30 pm local time)
A-Channels in Ottawa, Barrie, London, and Victoria September 29, October 6 and 13 (8 – 8:30 pm local time)


Bravo!FACT (Foundation to Assist Canadian Talent) was established in 1995 by CHUM Television's Canadian national cable arts channel Bravo!, and is the largest funder of shorts in Canada. Close to twelve million dollars have been awarded in grants for the production of 1,000 shorts across the country.
