NB FILM CO-OP MEMBER FILM NEWS!
EXCLUSIVE: Where is our Canadian Downton Abbey or Game of Thrones?
CTV, Canada’s No. 1 broadcaster is now getting into serialized drama.
Cardinal is based on the John Cardinal mystery books by Northern Ontario author Giles Blunt.
The TV adaptation is by Orphan Black’s Aubrey Nealon and directed by 19-2’s Daniel Grou. It debuted this past Wednesday at 10 p.m. on CTV.
The six-part series is based on Forty Words For Sorrow, the first of Blunt’s books. It begins with the discovery of a missing 13-year-old girl whose body is discovered in an abandoned mine. The mystery takes place in Northern Ontario where the series was shot, giving it an atmospheric, melancholic veneer.
The show stars NB Film Co-op member Billy Campbell who was in the American version of The Killing and Canadian Karine Vanasse (Pan Am, Revenge) as detective Lise Delorme. Vanasse starred in NB Film Co-op member Gia Milani's feature film All the Wrong Reasons.
If this sounds a lot like the famous and highly popular BBC mystery Broadchurch, where a young child’s body is found on a beach in a small town and male and female detective partners work together to solve the crime, it's because it is quite similar.
Producers shot in Northern Ontario, including Sudbury, which doubles as the fictional city of Algonquin Bay.

CINEMA POLITICA PRESENTS: AMAZON VOICES
Jan. 27: Cinema Politica Fredericton screens "Amazon Voices: In the Heart of Native Resistence".
Friday, Jan. 27, at 7pm at Conserver House, 180 Saint John St., Fredericton. Cinema Politica Fredericton presents: "Amazon Voices: In the Heart of Native Resistence" (Lucile Alemany & Lamia Chraibi / Ecuador - France / 2015 / 52 ' )
In Amazonia, Ecuador, Indigenous communities in a region devastated by Chevron Texaco try to make their voices heard to denounce the damage done by oil extraction. How does one define development? What is a “good-living” society? What solutions can be found in education? In Sarayaku, Yasuni and Lago Agrio, Indigenous communities denounce the social, cultural, environmental and human damage caused by oil extraction and propose profoundly different ways of thinking.This film is shown partly in Spanish and Quechua with English subtitles.
There will be an optional discussion after the film. Everyone welcome. Films are free but donations welcome. Conserver House is wheelchair accessible but the washrooms are up the stairs. Like Cinema Politica Fredericton on Facebook or check out our webpage for more information on our exceptional lineup!

Sunday March 5th, 2017, Women in Film and Television-Atlantic (WIFT-AT) is pleased to host its 7th Annual Women Making Waves Awards!
What makes a WAVE award nominee? Unlike traditional awards, there are no categories for the WAVE Awards. The goal is to salute women in the screen industry for their:
Vision & Leadership
Outstanding behind-the-scenes support
The awards are not province specific and women from all four provinces have previously received WAVE Awards. Anyone, female or male, can submit a nomination, and there is no limit to the number of submissions by any one person. All women in the Atlantic screen industry are eligible: from directors to set designers, to bookkeepers, producers, actors and administrators.
To submit a nomination please include:
- A document convincingly detailing why your nominee(s) should be recognized by WIFT-AT. In your nomination pitch, you may want to consider including any volunteer work, awards, achievements, (800 words maximum)
- Résumé and/or filmography of the nominee(s)
- Contact information for both yourself and the nominee(s),
- A maximum of 2 letters of support in addition to the Nominator’s letter of recommendation

WOMEN IN FILM AND TELEVISION - ATLANTIC (WIFT-AT) PUTS DIVERSITY IN THE SPOTLIGHT
One 5 minute film pitch that spotlights diversity will win a fabulous prize package including in-kind services valued at over $5000 during this year’s Women Making Waves conference.
This year’s Pitch This: The New Normal competition encourages filmmakers to include equality, diversity and inclusion as part of their pitch concept. WIFT-AT recognizes the role film and television plays in shaping the world and ideas around us, and that featuring diversity in front of and behind the screen acknowledges and celebrates the individualities and collective experiences that make us who we are.
Five filmmakers will each have the opportunity to present a five-minute pitch before a selection committee of screen-based media experts and a live audience on Saturday, March 4.
The pitch competition is open to WIFT-AT full members. To be considered, please submit your CV to firstname.lastname@example.org, plus a one-page pitch including the title, short synopsis, and how your project will measurably incorporate equality, diversity or inclusion.
The deadline is February 10th.
The 5 Pitch Participants will be selected and advised by February 17th.
The pitch winner will be announced Sunday, March 5 during the WAVE Awards brunch!
