Norman Wilner provides a brief summation to the captivating and successful 21st Images Festival in Toronto, ON. Wilner gives mention to many of the interesting works, including: G. B. Jones' Lollipop Generation, Nelson Henricks and the Valerie Project. Wilner also includes highlights from the International Shorts Programs as well.

Wilner states that despite difficulty of stating the vast array of programing choices and options at the festival some work should be highlighted. These include; the opening night work of G.B. Jones' The Lollipop Generation, Ben Russell's Black and White Trypps Number Four, Karl Lemieux's Western Sunburn, Rosa Barba's Outwardly From Earth's Center, Penny Lane's She used to see him most weekends, Kim Sheppard's Here we Are, B.H Yael's Trading the Future as well as the Nelson Henricks retrospective.
