(Toronto, ON) – August 1st, 2018. The Toronto International Film Festival® announced today that Genre filmmaker Patricia Chica, known for her horror/fantasy shorts “A Tricky Treat” and “Serpent’s Lullaby”, is among the female directors selected for the prestigious TIFF Filmmaker Lab. Chica’s submission of “Montreal Girls,” a feature script in the advanced phase of development, as well as a one minute excerpt from her acclaimed short “Morning After“, landed her a spot in the highly competitive program.

“It is a tremendous honor, and I’m excited for the mentorship opportunity and to develop and advance my current projects through this excellent lab,” says Patricia Chica.

Montreal Girls,” co-written with Kamal John Iskander, tells the story of Basil, a young Egyptian student who travels to Montreal to study medicine and meets two young women who alter his perceptions and inspire him to follow his innate desire to become a poet. Carmen Aiello is casting out of Los Angeles. Producers Mohamed Hefzy and Daniel Ziskind of Cairo-based production company Film Clinic (TIFF’s 2017 selection “Sheikh Jackson” and Cannes’ 2018 selection “Yomeddine”), will handle the Egypt segment of filming.

The team of “Montréal Girls” is attending the Toronto International Film Festival® and open to discuss this production with Sales Agents, Talent Agents, and Financiers. In the light of that, Shoreline Management in Beverly Hills, CA has signed Patricia Chica and is now managing her career within the US and Latin American markets.
