Bliss to open Kingston Canadian Film Festival

Saturday, February 23rd, 2013—News

I just got word that my short movie Bliss will open the 2013 Kingston Canadian Film Festival! As part of the Local Shorts Program, Bliss will show before Kickass Canadian Michael McGowan’s latest feature, Still Mine, starring James Cromwell, Geneviève Bujold and Campbell Scott. This is a huge honour for me, as McGowan has directed such Canadian film treasures as Saint Ralph (see the Saint Ralph review from April 2009) and One Week (see the One Week review from May 2009). Bliss can be seen at Kingston’s Baby Grand Theatre at 7pm on Thursday, February 28 (the opening night gala screening!) and 12pm on Saturday, March 2.
