Please join us this coming Wednesday, April 19th, for an exclusive preview screening of the first feature film produced in Canada's Northwest Territories.
The Department of Visual and Performing Arts, in conjunction with the Consulate General of Canada in Atlanta, will host a screening to celebrate National Canadian Film Day with a viewing of the independent feature, Sun at Midnight.
The film is "the first to feature Gwich’in people, land, and culture in leading roles."
Shot on location in the Arctic Circle, the film stars Devery Jacobs (Rhymes For Young Ghouls), who won the Borsos Award for Best Overall Performance (male/female) at the Whistler Film Festival, as well as Duane Howard, who is best known for his starring role in The Revenant.
You may view the trailer for the film here:
The screening will take place on Wednesday, April 19th, at 5:30p.m. in room CE 301 in the Harry S. Downs Center for Continuing Education.
A member of the Consulate General of Canada staff will introduce the film.
Light refreshments will be provided. The first fifty attendees will also receive a free National Canadian Film Day t-shirt!
