WMW13 takes place from March 15-17, 2013 in Halifax, NS at the Lord Nelson Hotel, King’s College, NSCAD and Le Bistro Restaurant.
The Lord Nelson is once again pleased to offer Women Making Waves delegates discounted room rates at Halifax’s most historic hotel. The Opening Reception, Screening and Dinner will all take place at the hotel so take advantage and stay where the action is!!
These special rates will only be available until Friday February 15th.
Conference Programming is taking shape, including something exciting and new. For the first time ever WMW will be hosting two incredible Master Classes on the Friday. Join Phyllis Laing, president and founder of Buffalo Gal Pictures with over 60 credits to her name, for her Master Class ‘The Producer Reinvented’. Laing will navigate you through her experience to create a strategy for survival and growth and continue to be part of the rich fabric of regional storytelling in the face of a constantly changing industry.
And for those interested in a technical look into the industry, sign up for ‘Depth of Field: Inside Cinematography’. This intensive Master Class will rip the lens off cinematography with renowned cinematographer Stephanie Weber Biron. The woman behind the lens for feature films I Killed My Mother, Heartbeats, and Halifax-shot Blackbird and All the Wrong Reasons, will offer insight and instruction into the many facets of her profession.
We are very excited to be offering these intimate and in depth Master Classes as an addition to our regular conference programing. Please note that registration for these classes will be separate from the regular conference registration, and are not included in the weekend pass. Pricing for these classes will be announced soon.
Regular WMW programming will begin Friday night with a movie screening (we’ve got something really great in the works!) and a cocktail reception to get things really going.
Saturday’s exciting line-up features our keynote morning address with a special guest, followed by a wide range of workshops including ‘If You Hear It, Clear It– the ins and outs of Music Rights Clearance’ with last year’s popular presenter Elizabeth Klinck, a panel on adaptation–a candid look into the complex process of taking a book to screen hosted by award-winning author Vicki Grant; and a workshop exploring new innovations and production applications in transmedia, just to name a few. We will be finishing the day off with dinner at the Lord Nelson Hotel, and informal networking into the evening.
Spend the last morning of the conference In Conversation with New Brunswick filmmaker Gia Milani, hosted over brunch. This writer, producer, director has has won awards for her films which include Bathroom Stalled, A Dark Radius, and She Lost Her Marbles, and shot her first feature, All the Wrong Reasons, in Halifax this past summer.
There are discounts for early birds, out-of-towners, seniors, students, and, of course, WIFT-AT members, so buy your pass today!
