Coming soon (once again!) to a theatre near you: THE GRAIN ELEVATORS.
Created and produced as a result of the joint AFCOOP / WFNS program, THE GRAIN ELEVATORS will be screened at this year’s Atlantic Film Festival in September 2013 as a part of its Atlantic Shorts offerings.
The screening is scheduled to take place at the Park Lane Cinemas (5657 Spring Garden Road, Halifax, NS) on Saturday, September 14, 2013 @ 2:00pm.
Through a joint Atlantic Filmmakers’ Coop and Writers’ Federation of NS project, poets were matched up with filmmakers to produce collaborative cinepoems. A Certain Openness: the filming of poetry, was a collaborative film-making project designed to foster relationships between Nova Scotia’s film-making and writing communities.
In late 2013 and early 2013, along with a host of other folks, Matt Robinson and Megan Wennberg collaborated to produce a short film based Robinson’s poem, THE GRAIN ELEVATORS. Shot on location here in Halifax, NS, on good old-fashioned film stock, the newly created cinepoem had its premiere at the 7th Annual Halifax Independent Filmmakers’ Festival in April 2013.
This year’s Atlantic Film Festival runs September 12th-19th, 2013.
