What do Dennis Villeneuve’s Enemy (2013), Guillermo del Toro’s The Shape of Water (2017), Kristoffer Borgli’s Dream Scenario (2023), and The Weeknd’s music video for “Secrets” (2017) all have in common? They were all shot, at least partially, at UTSC! Believe it or not, our campus has become a favourite of both niche and blockbuster filmmakers over the years. In the following video short, UTSC’s very own Alice Maurice and Sara Saljoughi explain the school’s old relationship with television and film production, as well as what makes the campus a captivating sight on screen.
