It’s Day 2! Oh, the fun is just beginning.
I highly encourage everyone to check out the full schedule of events as early as possible to secure your seats for some of these incredible screenings and panels.
Today there will be screenings of a collection of short films at the LSPU Hall at both noon and 7:00pm, as well as screenings at the Johnson Geocentre at 9:30pm.
There will also be two feature-length screenings tonight that you won’t want to miss!
The first film is E-Team, an American documentary that premiered earlier this year at the Sundance Film Festival to glowing reviews. Co-directors Katy Chevigny & Ross Kauffman teamed up to present a harrowing and honest look into the lives of emergency responders to human rights violations. It’s a powerful film that gives viewers a front row seat to the glimpses of humanity conveyed in some of the most afflicted locales on Earth. This documentary will be screening at The Rooms this evening from 7:00pm-9:00pm.
The second film screening this evening is Cast No Shadow, the highly anticipated film written by local jack-of-all-trades Joel Thomas Hynes and directed by Christian Sparked in his debut feature length. This movie swept the Atlantic Film Festival Awards, with nods to both of the aforementioned gentlemen. Hynes’ work needs no introduction, defining our province’s darkest tones with some of the most genuine dialog you’ll find in any local work. The screening will be a late one, starting at 9:30pm at The LSPU Hall.
Again, I can’t stress the importance of catching these fine filmmakers honing their craft in some of the most remarkable selections you’ll see this year.
Stay tuned! More to come.
