ATLANTIC AUTEURS PROGRAM TWO
SATURDAY JUNE 9 | 7 PM | NEPTUNE SCOTIABANK STAGE THEATRE | 68 MIN
$12 @ the door | $10 advance/student/senior/unwaged
The diverse selection showcased in Atlantic Auteurs - Program Two includes Wintering, a thoughtful take on beekeeping made by Keelin Jack through the CFAT Media Arts Scholarship program, as well as new work from HIFF alumni Josh Owen, Billy’s Behemoth Blast - an astonishingly detailed, mind-bending animation. The Importance of Dreaming by Tara Audibert is another animation with a completely different but just as effective style, playfully immersing the viewer into a lush world of woodland creatures. Featuring natural and complex performances by the young cast, Daniel Boos’ Thug tells the thought-provoking story of how far an actor will go to get a role. In contrast to this drama, the subversive dark horror/comedy Dogged by Nicole Steeves & Struan Sutherland will surprise and shock you with its twisted ending! There is something for everyone in this exciting collection of new shorts.
