PORCUPINE LAKE is a female-driven coming-of-age festival darling from award-winning writer/director Ingrid Veninger. This touching drama is truly a coming-of-age film for our generation, bringing two young girls to the forefront as they spend a summer together, sharing secrets, having adventures, and becoming more than best friends. Ultimately,  this story invites us to imagine a new model for a young girl’s first love story — one told from the inside out.

Two 13-year-old girls meet up early summer in Port Severn, a small town in Ontario, and become more than best friends. They share personal secrets, fears, grievances, and daredevil challenges. By the end of the summer, Bea and Kate have irrevocably influenced each other, and the course of their lives have changed in ways they can’t yet foresee. Inventive and daring, Veninger explores the vulnerability of being thirteen with insight and humor. Through an intimate and authentic portrait of Bea’s awakening into selfhood.
