Xavier Dolan wins TIFF award

Laurence Anyways voted best Canadian film
Gay Canadian filmmaker Xavier Dolan may not have won a prize this year at Cannes, but his latest film, Laurence Anyways, was awarded Best Canadian Feature at the close of the Toronto International Film Festival.

Dolan recently spoke to Xtra about his disappointment that the film was not screened in a competitive category at Cannes.

Laurence Anyways is the story of a straight couple whose relationship is tested after Laurence, the male character, confesses to his girlfriend that he is trans.

Dolan chatted with Xtra on the TIFF red carpet. He said his character's transsexuality is a "secondary plot."

"I knew that my main focus would be love," says Dolan of the film. 

Check out Xtra's full interview with Dolan.
