NB FILMMAKER HONOURED IN CANADIAN ART REVIEW
Congratulations to New Brunswick filmmaker Amanda Dawn Christie whose feature length award winning documentary Spectres of Shortwave made the Akimblog (Canada's online contemporary art review) critics pick list for 2016!
"Asked to choose three of their most remarkable and affecting experiences of the past twelve months, the Halifax, Winnipeg and Vancouver Akimbloggers have scoured their memories to come up with today's Critics' Picks"
Anyone who regularly makes the drive to New Brunswick from Halifax has been a witness to the basic premise of Amanda Dawn Christie’s ambitious suite of works for the past few years. As the CBC dismantled its RCI international radio transmission site outside Sackville just across the provincial border, the Moncton-based artist has been documenting the iconic site in film and other media since 2009. In 2016, she debuted two parts of the four-part project in Halifax, with the experimental documentary film Spectres of Shortwave premiering at the Atlantic Film Festival in September. She also recreated the site with an interactive scale model on the waterfront during the late-night Nocturne festival in October. Viewers could touch it to play sounds Christie recorded at the site before it was dismantled in 2014.
NBFC MEMBER SHINES AS INTERN AT CSAC
Naomi Frooman, NB Film Co-op member and Charlotte Street Arts Centre Intern
The Charlotte Street Arts Centre (CSAC) staff highlight of the month is their superstar intern, Naomi! It has been an absolute pleasure having Naomi work with CSAC for the last few months. CSAC is so thankful to have had the opportunity to take on Naomi as part of her Co-op program from École Sainte-Anne. As her last month comes to end, Naomi has been extremely involved in the Charlotte Street Arts Centre community, not only in their office and events but also in the Artemis Dance studio and at the Film Co-op where she is a new member.
From Naomi: "I have immensely enjoyed my time at the CSAC for I believe it has helped me grow as a person. I've learned so many great things by working with inspiring people in a creative environment. I was also lucky to have the opportunity to volunteer on the Silver Wave Film Festival this year through the Film Co-op. This incredible experience and the kind people that work in this building is something I'm so grateful for. I am applying to Universities for a degree in the Arts and I wish to get involved in the film industry. I aspire to someday teach English as a second language and truly make a difference in somebody's world. "
