The documentary More Than Just Water, along with filmmaker Winnie Murphy, will be featured at the Routes to Roots Film Festival event on Sunday, December 13th. This short documentary explores the decline of the fishing industry and the loss of identity it has inflicted on the community of Port Dover. This will be followed by the TIFF feature presentation of Ordinary Love, starring Lesley Manville and Liam Neeson. This film takes an extraordinary look at the lives of a middle-aged couple in the midst of the wife’s breast cancer diagnosis (Recent Best Film winner at the 2020 Irish Film and Television Awards).
Over the next few months, R2RFF will partner with the TIFF Film Series at The Strand and present short films and filmmaker Q&A sessions at select screenings. There will be no additional charge for this content, however moviegoers are encouraged to bring non-perishable food items or cash donations for local foodbanks such as Riversyde 83, a Church Out Serving (COS) project.

Ordinary Love (Short Synopsis) Joan and Tom have been married for many years. There is an ease to their relationship which only comes from spending a lifetime together and a depth of love which expresses itself through tenderness and humour in equal part. When Joan is diagnosed with breast cancer, the course of her treatment shines a light on their relationship as they are faced with the challenges that lie ahead and the prospect of what might become of them if something were to happen to her. ORDINARY LOVE is a story about love, survival and the epic questions life throws at each and every one of us.
