Toronto – WEBWIRE

Toronto filmmaker Nisha Pahujas award-winning feature-length documentary To Kill a Tiger, co-produced by Notice Pictures and the National Film Board of Canada (NFB), will be screening in cinemas across Canada starting February 9.

In To Kill a Tiger, Ranjit, a farmer in Jharkhand, India, takes on the fight of his life when he demands justice for his 13-year-old daughter, the victim of a brutal gang rape. In India, where a rape is reported every 20 minutes and conviction rates are less than 30 percent, Ranjits decision to support his daughter is virtually unheard of, and his journey unprecedented.

At its world premiere at the 2022 Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF), To Kill a Tiger won the Amplify Voices Award for Best Canadian Feature Film. Other notable awards include the Inspiring Voices and Perspectives Feature Film Award at Cinefest Sudbury and, most recently, Best Documentary at the Palm Springs International Film Festival. To Kill a Tiger was also named to Canadas Top Ten, an annual list of the countrys finest films selected by TIFF, and Pahuja was awarded the DOC Vanguard Award by the DOC Institute of Canada.

Confirmed tour dates include Toronto, Hamilton, Montreal, Vancouver and Edmontonfollowing a special TIFF Canadas Top Ten screening in Toronto on January 29.

Indy 500 winner Marcus Ericsson to race in Porsche Carrera Cup Scandinavia final


This year’s winner of the world’s largest single sporting event – the Indy 500 – is set to star as the guest driver in the Porsche Carrera Cup Scandinavia’s final race weekend of the season. Ericsson will vie with the best drivers in the field and competes for the first time against his younger brother Hampus Ericsson.

Racing star Marcus Ericsson has announced that he will compete as a guest driver during the final race weekend of the year in the Porsche Carrera Cup Scandinavia, as well as in the final round of the Swedish GT championship. Ericsson will be the two series’ star guest at Mantorp Park on 1 October, and it will be a unique opportunity for the Indycar driver to meet his home racing fans.

2022 the most successful year in his racing career

“2022 has been the most successful year in my racing career,” says Ericsson. “It’s great to be able to finish this incredible season, after victory in the Indy 500, for the Swedish audience on my home turf and as a guest driver in the Swedish championship final. It’s a great opportunity to thank all the fans for the amazing support I’ve received.”

Earlier this year, Ericsson entered the history books when he crossed the finish line at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway as the winner of the Indy 500. The classic oval speedway event is one of the three most prestigious races in motorsport, along with the Monaco Grand Prix and Le Mans 24 Hours, and is often billed as the world’s largest single sporting event: Ericsson won the race in front of 325,000 spectators in the grandstands.

There’s also a little added drama for Ericsson at this event, as he will compete against his younger brother for the first time. Hampus Ericsson is a top performer in the Porsche Carrera Cup Scandinavia and is one of the title contenders.

“Of course I hope to have plenty of pace, especially as I get the chance to race against my little brother Hampus,” says Ericsson. “I follow the championship, so I know how competitive the racing is – it’s going to be tough. This is my first race in a GT car, so there’s a lot to learn. The car has less downforce than an Indycar, it’s heavier and has the engine in the back so it’s quite different. It’s sure to be exciting.”

The Porsche Carrera Cup Scandinavia guest driver entry will be Ericsson’s first competition in Sweden since he raced karts as a youngster; the Indy 500 winner’s extensive international career in single-seater formula cars began at the age of 16.

Ericsson is part of the Porsche Experience Racing team and will be starting in a guest car run by Porsche Sweden. All drivers compete in identical Porsche 911 GT3 Cup models, so the racing action is very close.

“Having the reigning Indy 500 champion on the starting grid during the season finale of the Porsche Carrera Cup Scandinavia is of course quite unique,” says Raine Wermelin, Director, Porsche Sweden. “This will be a great chance for fans of racing to see Marcus Ericsson in the form of his life competing during the finals of the championship. Marcus choosing to drive with us is a great honour and we’d like to say a big thank you to Chip Ganassi Racing for helping to make it happen.”

Ericsson’s Indycar career began in 2019 and he has been with the legendary Chip Ganassi Racing since 2020. He has three race wins under his belt, including the 2022 Indy 500. He heads to the Swedish championship finals directly off the back of the Indycar season finale at Laguna Seca in California. With only two races left to run, Ericsson is in fourth place in the championship, just 17 points from the top spot and with 108 points left to play for.

Newfront is a Winner in 2022 FinTech Breakthrough Awards Program

 Newfront, a tech-enabled, full-service brokerage, today announced that it has been selected as winner in the sixth annual FinTech Breakthrough Awards program conducted by FinTech Breakthrough, an independent market intelligence organization that recognizes the top companies, technologies and products in the global FinTech market today.

Newfront is an insurance brokerage that leverages technology to vastly simplify the buying process for clients and the selling process for brokers. Newfront is focused on providing world-class advisors to their clients via a deep bench of seasoned insurance advisors, risk management professionals, benefit consultants, and retirement service experts with specialization across 18 industries.

The platform connects risk and capital by removing the complexity and pain of transacting insurance. Newfront’s platform enables a shift from capturing data at a static point in time to analyzing a continuous data stream collected from public and private data sources. This improves client outcomes and is the foundation for new products that shift the business from annual policy cycles to a service that allows for continuous evaluation and management of client risk. Importantly, the data model and automated workflows modernize the way insurance is being done while delivering excellent client service.

“Insurance is essential to every modern business, yet most of the industry operates with outdated processes and antiquated technology, as many clients and brokerages spend excessive time on manual data entry and processes – time that clients could devote to their businesses and brokers could use to provide clients with expert risk management guidance,” said James Johnson, Managing Director, FinTech Breakthrough. “Newfront is energizing the industry’s evolution with a ‘breakthrough’ insurtech platform and service approach, creating new processes that provide better service for clients and better opportunities for brokers. Congratulations to the Newfront team on being our choice for ‘Best InsurTech Startup’ for 2022.”

The FinTech Breakthrough Awards is the premier awards program founded to recognize the FinTech innovators, leaders and visionaries from around the world in a range of categories, including Digital Banking, Personal Finance, Lending, Payments, Investments, RegTech, InsurTech, and many more. The 2022 FinTech Breakthrough Award program attracted more than 3,950 nominations from across the globe.

“We are thrilled to be recognized in this way by FinTech Breakthrough. While other companies are trying to disrupt the industry with technology, they are ignoring the relationship between brokers and the businesses that rely on their expertise. This failure to evolve represents a failure by the industry to serve the needs of today’s customers,” said Spike Lipkin, Newfront CEO. “At Newfront, we believe that there has never been a better time to innovate and transform the insurance transaction, adding improved service standards and new products. We’re at the start of this journey and are excited about how we are building the modern insurance experience to improve the industry for our clients.”

By bringing a scalable approach to service managed to SLAs, Newfont provides transparency that benefits clients, sets, and then exceeds their expectations. Additionally, Newfront relies on a client-centered culture and a long-term focus on entrepreneurial innovation. As such, in the past year, they launched the first digital client and broker experience in the insurance industry.
