Cinéfest Sudbury to Screen Canadore Student Films

Sep 7, 2018 | Canadore College

(NORTH BAY, ONT.) – For the first time, Cinéfest Sudbury International Film Festival will be screening four student short films in its regular juried program.

Daze of Dream directed by Aaron Martini, Shark directed by Curtis Carriere, Post-Script directed by Eric Robillard, and SPIDER directed by Cather Orr are four of nineteen short films that have been selected for screening at the festival September 15-23.

All four students are registered in the college’s three-year digital cinematography program. At last year’s Cinéfest, within the CTV Best in Shorts competition, Martini took home first place in the student category from his comedy short Future Sick and his music video, Versa – This is Where We Disappear, garnered the runner-up award in the student category.

Angelique’s Isle, produced by Canadore College professor Dave Clement, will also be making its Ontario premiere at the festival on September 22.

Earlier this week, the City of North Bay announced that local film activities have doubled since 2016, which accounted for $22.7 million in direct spending within the community.

Canadore College closely aligns its programming mix to the needs of regional employers and the economy. In direct relation to the film industry, Canadore delivers television broadcast, digital cinematography and post production programs. The college’s campuses are also film-friendly and have served as locations for independent, Hallmark, Netflix, Showcase and other major network productions.

Cinéfest Sudbury is one of Canada's top 10 film festivals and is attended by the best and brightest from across Canada.

Canadore College trains people through applied learning, leadership and innovation. It provides access to over 75 full-time quality programs and has outstanding faculty and provides success services to students from nearly 400 Canadian communities and 15 international countries. The College and its students add nearly $244 million to Nipissing Parry Sound Service Area economy. Approximately 1,000 students graduate from Canadore each year, and they join 45,000 alumni working across the globe. Canadore receives less than 50 per cent of its traditional funding from the provincial Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities and relies on its own innovation and entrepreneurial endeavors and generous donors for the balance.
