Trio of Chats from FIN 2019


Broadcast Date September 25, 2019

If you’ve been following our SEA AND BE SCENE adventures over the years you’re familiar with the tremendous affinity we have for the Atlantic International Film Festival – it’s 8 action packed days when movie makers, industry shakers and film fans hunker down in the city of Halifax, Nova Scotia to celebrate cinema. Between the red carpet galas and hundreds of screens, the networking events, script pitches and parties – it’s hard to catch a few moments of free time with folks – but I’ve always found great fortune in the lobby of the host hotel – and so it was amidst the FIN Fest buzz of Lord Nelson Hotel & Suites that I connected with today’s guests – PEI’s award winning filmmaker Millefiore Clarkes (SOLASTALGIA), Labrador born/Newfoundland based filmmaker Benjamin Noah (NEW WOMAN), the Executive Director of FIN himself Wayne Carter – all those conversations and more including some wonderful new music from amazing East Coast artists – indeed it’s a very busy show – so off we go!
