October 19
Historic St. Mary's

Due to an overwhelming response for the Charlottetown Film Festival's opening night screening, organizers have arranged for a special showing of these films in Historic St. Mary's later this month, with a special performance by Catherine MacLellan.

The Charlottetown Film Festival is opening October 12 with a screening of O KanataAthena's Lost Twin, and The Song and the Sorrow, but due to limited seating at the venue, this event sold out almost immediately. A second screening of these films has been added on October 16, again at the City Cinema in Charlottetown, however organizers felt it was important to make these films accessible to as many as possible. 

The Charlottetown Film Festival has partnered with Indian River Festival to offer a third screening of these films at Historic St. Mary's on October 19 at 7 pm. 

"It has been a privilege to create the film The Song and the Sorrow with Catherine MacLellan and the National Film Board," says the film's director, Millefiore Clarkes. "I am thrilled to have it screen at the Indian River Festival, as the film is full of music, and what place better to listen to and honour the music of Gene and Catherine MacLellan than St. Mary's Church?"  

Doors open at 6 pm and food and beverage will be available for purchase in the pavilion.

The Song and the Sorrow is dedicated to the memory and music of Gene MacLellan and is a National Film Board production. The documentary just won Best Atlantic Short Doc at FIN Atlantic International Film Festival 2018 in Halifax and the award for Best Atlantic Filmmaker at the 2018 Lunenburg Doc Fest. There will be a Q&A with Catherine and Mille after the screening, as well as a special musical performance by Catherine.

Audience members are encouraged to bring a blanket as the temperatur may be cool in the venue at this time of year. Tickets are available online or by calling Ticketpro (1-888-311-9090) or the Festival box office (902-836-3733).
