On April 10, 2012, honourable WIFT-AT member and talented and experienced filmmaker Madame Annett Wolf presented her exceptional film on the renowned Belgian singer-songwriter, Jacques Brel, at the Aberdeen Cultural Centre in Moncton, New Brunswick. Sixty people attended the cabaret-style event, which offered wine and cheese, a fascinating presentation by Mme Wolf and the screening of her film followed by a Q & A. The evening was a huge success.
Comments heard following the event:
“She (Annett Wolf) is luminous, ageless and fascinating; I could easily do 10,000 interviews with her. Interviewing her was one of the best encounters in my career.” - A journalist from Radio-Canada
“From the wine and cheese and cabaret-style event set in an intimate setting, to Mme Wolf’s riveting storytelling and her magnificent film, this is one of the best events I have attended since I moved to Moncton.” - An employee of l’Alliance française.
“I was moved to tears by her film.” – A WIFT-AT member in attendance
“It is so wonderful to watch a film that takes the time to let you experience the songs and the intensity of the interviews. It is a beautiful, lyrical film.” – A costume designer
“We connected with Annett’s philosophical views on life, mortality and living life to the fullest.” - A couple of world-travellers in their seventies
“The evening was magical. Thank-you, thank-you, thank-you.” – An assistant optician
Many thanks go out to the organizers of the event, members of WIFT-AT and Film Zone, and sponsors, Film NB and The New Brunswick Filmmakers’ Co-op.
