If you catch the screening, send in a review here: British Columbia director Andrew Currie’s film about domesticated zombies, Fido, will open the Canada First! section of the Toronto International Film Festival, organizers announced Tuesday, as they unveiled the fest’s homegrown slate, according to the Hollywood Reporter. “Fido” is one of nine features, all but one a world premiere, in the section devoted to emerging Canadian filmmakers, which runs Sept. 7-Sept. 16. Set in a small 1950s town where rotting zombies deliver the mail, the film stars Billy Connolly, Henry Czerny, Carrie-Anne Moss, Peter Stormare, K’Sun Ray, Tim Blake Nelson and Dylan Baker.
