Official selections to be announced at public event launch – Friday October 23, 2015.
The Silver Wave Film Festival (SWFF) committee and the NB Filmmakers’ Co-operative wish to invite everyone to join them as they launch the festival programme and website for the 15th edition of the Silver Wave Film Festival.
“Silver Wave is always a proud moment for all of us who’ve had the privilege of volunteering on the festival annually,” said Tony Merzetti, NB Film Co-op ED and Silver Wave Co-organizer. “This year’s festival celebrates 15 years and is designed to bring back longtime movie lovers and fans, and to engage new audiences.”
This event features the screening of the official trailer for SWFF 2015, produced by Rob Parsons of Let Em Laugh Productions. To celebrate its 15th anniversary year, SWFF unveils a bold new look designed by SWFF Marketing and Publicity Co-Lead Bunthivy Nou.
Silver Wave annually spotlights the province’s rich 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.
Running November 5-8, SWFF 2015 will host a visual feast of local and international shorts and documentaries with several carefully chosen features highlighted in key programming slots. A centrepiece of the festival in this special anniversary year is the NB Shorts Gala, a celebration of NB short films in one major screening programme on the Saturday night of the festival, followed by the Silver Wave Awards.
