After a career in music and studies in creative writing at the University of British Columbia, Terry Miles turned his hand to film. His first feature film, When Life Was Good (2008), made while Miles was still in university, premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival in 2008 and went on to screen all over the world. He was back at TIFF with A Night for Dying Tigers in 2010 and again with Cinemanovels in 2013. He lives in Vancouver with two very loveable high-maintenance dogs.
As a director, it would be pretty easy to find a half hour here or there to talk about the day, but, as a producer/director, running around to meetings, festival events, conferences, and more meetings, it's almost impossible.
Well, it's day four and two of the CINEMANOVELS public screenings are in the books. TIFF audiences are amazing. They were so enthusiastic about the film, and the questions they asked during the Q&A were smart and thoughtful.
