WIFT-AT Programming Sneak Preview News
- Halifax’s Reel Talk begins a whole new season of Conversations in February at Carbon Arc. Candid, generous, inspiring, challenging, these one to one conversations with wonderfully active women in the Atlantic Film industry are hosted by a different WIFT-AT member once a month. Reel Talk offers a chance to spend the evening getting to know one artist and her work in a focused, intimate setting, in the live interview style of Inside The Actor’s Studio. Word has spread and the audience is growing.
In Moncton in April, watch for more information on WIFT-AT’s La génie de Jacques Brel, une soirée rencontre avec la cinéaste Annett Wolf. The conversation with this award winning journalist, interviewer, filmmaker will take place on the third floor of Moncton`s Aberdeen Cultural Centre on April 10 and will include a screening of Annett’s remarkable hour long interview with Jacques Brel.
March 9-11, join us for our second annual Women Making Waves Conference in Halifax, hosted at the Lord Nelson Hotel, with terrific room rates and a fabulous dinner and screening planned for the evening of Saturday, March 10.
