Some of the Event Highlights from 2018

The Sunrise Film Festival  hosted a number of events in 2018.  See details below:-

SCRIPT WRITING SEMINAR  held in June

A one day intensive Script Writing Seminar was conducted by novelist, playwright, and screenwriter Gary Blackwood. Thank you to the North Shore Players for hosting and sponsoring this event.

This event was a sold-out success! "It was exactly what I think this small little burg needed. I went home and started from scratch with the lessons learned from Gary. I think that Tatamagouche as well as The North Shore would certainly benefit from similar events." - Mike Purdy

 

FILM & TV & SPECIAL EFFECTS MAKE-UP WORKSHOP held in August 

A one day Film & TV & Special Effects Make-up Workshop by professionally trained Make-up Artist Colleen Patterson.  Colleen trained at Blanche MacDonald in British Columbia and specializes in beauty, fashion, airbrush, TV and film and special effects and prosthetics.  Colleen has worked on many projects in the area including the recently made documentary The Ship Hector and the recently completed film The Only Game in Town.
