#FIN2021 Wayne Carter


Wayne Carter Joseph Ciarrocco 147

Broadcast Date – September 1, 2021

Our chats will be just that very conversational not entirely sensible and with any luck totally enjoyable… that’s always the case when I connect with today’s guest. Truth be told, our interviews have become a cherished annual tradition and rightly so since he’s the Executive Director of FIN ATLANTIC INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL. Oh, sure we’ve shared many marvellous moments amidst movie stars and industry players – back in the days when film fans from all over the world hunkered down in Halifax to celebrate cinema every September.  Of course, that was all pre-covid but even back in 2020 – when the whole world was shutting down the fine folks at FIN knew the show must go on.  So they moved their celebration online with #FINstream and it was fantastic. But here we are – a year later and just a couple of weeks from FIN 2021 and while the circumstances surrounding cinema-going present an ever-changing set of challenges the FIN team has come up with a wonderful way to take it all in – so we’ll talk about that and so much more – including the stellar line up of pictures set to screen, from the features and shorts shot right here at home and the award-winning films from all around the world.  Plus we’ll talk about how FIN PARTNERS plans to foster future productions during this year’s festival. And hey and be sure to stick around for the end of the show when we catch up with my new and truly talented pal Joseph Ciarrocco whose name can be found on 3 films screening at this year’s festival.  With all that ahead we best get to it – here’s my telephone conversation with the one and only Wayne Carter. (you’ll find the player at the bottom of this post)
