FLIN FLON: A Hockey Town, 72m, USA, Dustin Cohen (Documentary)
The mining town of Flin Flon is similar to most other small towns with one major exception – the community is lovingly obsessed with their junior hockey team, which over the decades has spawned several National Hockey League legends. Flin Flon, named for a science fiction character, lives and dies with its beloved Bombers.
As we travel with the Bombers on bus rides through the heartland, not only do we experience the excitement and anxieties of young athletes reaching for their dream, but we also discover the townsfolk who support the players not as athletes, but as young men aspiring to reach heights very few attain. With loyalty and affection, players and fans thrive off one another to make themselves the best they can be.
CLEAN ICE, 10m, Toronto, March Mercanti (Drama)
Two generations clash as the legacy of a run-down hockey arena is at stake.
