Certain-Openness-LogoComing 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.
