Those are just some of the guest speakers and panelists you’ll be mingling with as Women Making Waves 2013 swings into full gear this weekend! Join us from March 15 -17th, at The Lord Nelson Hotel & Suites, University of King’s College, NSCAD and Le Bistro as we celebrate the women in the film, television and new media industries.
Congratulations to those of you who got in on the Master Classes, The Producer Reinvented with Phyllis Laing and Depth of Field: Inside Cinematography with Stephanie Weber Biron.
Kicking off Friday night’s regular programming will be a reception and movie screening. WMW is delighted to bring you award winning documentary – and Canada’s Top 10 2012 official selection (tiff.), The World Before Her by writer & director Nisha Pahuja.
Saturday’s events will begin In Conversation with multi-nominated actor, and three time Gemini Award-winner, Leah Pinsent. The versatile Canadian performer has played at all levels of production, from short film to feature and everything in between.
Since coming to you last month, we have added even more exciting content to our Saturday lineup, including a new interactive pitching workshop Putting Your Best Pitch Forward. The workshop, hosted by pitching expert Jan Miller, will give participants the chance to deliver a three minute pitch and receive immediate feedback in a supportive environment. To round out our Saturday, we are proud to introduce a new documentary panel called Paradigm Shifters:The Social Doc Filmmaker where filmmakers Nance Ackerman, Laura J. Turnbull and others examine the social impact of their work and weigh in on new technology like the i-doc and its media and world changing potential.
Women Making Waves will conclude Sunday with In Conversation with New Brunswick filmmaker Gia Milani and the WMW Awards Brunch, announcing the recipients of the 2013 WAVE Awards.
Individual tickets to events are available online up until 11:59pm the night before. Tickets can also be purchased at the door for any event (not including meals).
