Kyle Thomas’ 2011 short film Not Far From The Abattoir has been selected for a retrospective screening of important Canadian works at the world’s most prestigious short film festival in Clermont-Ferrand, France in February 2019.

A classic from the early days of North Country Cinema, Not Far From The Abattoir was written and directed by Kyle Thomas, produced by Thomas and Cameron Macgowan, with cinematography by Alexander Carson. The project also features collaborations with many NCC regulars, including Sara Corry as production manager, Bobby Vanonen as production designer, and Alex Mitchell as sound recordist. We’re honoured to have this film featured at Clermont-Ferrand alongside so many great works by visionary Canadian filmmakers from across the country on a major international stage.
