Watch: Canadian Filmmaker On Embracing Our Flaws

With the 2016 Toronto International Film Festival set to kickoff tomorrow, we look back at Canadian filmmaker Brad Preyton’s talk at ideacity.

Flaws define character in reality and fiction, says Brad Peyton. Here, he discusses how he uses these flaws as a “study point”, by accepting and embracing them.

This ideacity segment was originally filmed in June 2005.

Moses Znaimer’s ideacity, an annual three-day meeting of intellectuals—along with a whole lot of schmoozing, entertainment, fun and partying—takes place again in June 2017. Visit for more information.
