NB Film Co-op marks 17th Anniversary of Silver Wave Film Festival in celebration of New Brunswick Filmmakers
Silver Wave runs November 2-5, 2017
The 17th annual Silver Wave Film Festival announces its full festival program on Friday, October 13, 12 pm, at the Charlotte Street Arts Centre, upstairs auditorium, 732 Charlotte Street, Fredericton, NB. Refreshments will be served.
Silver Wave annually spotlights the province’s vibrant film talent and cultural legacy in film. The festival draws its inspiration from New Brunswick’s extraordinary and diverse collection of films, created by filmmakers from every age group and walk of life. The festival exists to engage fans of all ages in the art of cinema.
NB Shorts I and II and Tall on Talent are a focal part of the festival and draw large crowds. The entire festival is a visual feast with local and international programming. This year, the festival has some exciting changes.
Hundreds of independent and commercial filmmakers and producers will also take a break from film watching during the fest to mix and mingle at the Silver Wave Industry Series; an exciting annual industry day with panels, roundtables and a special producer’s reception.
“Silver Wave is a proud moment for all of us who volunteer to put the festival together annually” said Chris Campbell, Silver Wave co-organizer, and one of the three programmers. “This year’s festival is designed to bring out longtime movie lovers and fans, and we have new exciting events to unveil.”
The upcoming launch is the perfect opportunity to celebrate and support film in NB. Mix and mingle and see the 2017 Silver Wave promo trailer produced by annual SWFF sponsor Rob Parsons of M.A.D. 5 Films.
