A look at some of the stories featured on Grid City this week.

weekly round upWell, this week was dominated by the incredibly inspiring story of musician, Stephen Lewis.  Read about how he turned his life around, without realizing he was following in the footsteps of his father.  It’s a beautiful story and includes a very heartfelt video. Easily this week’s top feature.

This year’s edition of Fredericton’s annual Silver Wave Film Festival took place over the past weekend, bringing together hundreds of filmmakers and film enthusiasts for a celebration of the art and the people who make it happen. During each festival, SWFF organizers hand out a number of awards to both aspiring and established filmmakers from the region.  Check out the full list of 2014 winners.

We caught up with radio host Brendan MaGee to chat about his new program/podcast, Ferocious Coasts, which airs Sunday nights at 9pm on CHSR FM.  We also spoke with the Halifax group, This Ship, about the tough year they had and their return to The Capital stage.
