Queen of the Crows producer Jason Rogerson and director, Harmony Wagner at the 2013 Atlantic Film FestivalPEI short film selected to screen at prestigious film festival in France

Written and directed by Island filmmaker Harmony Wagner, and produced by Jason Rogerson of PEI’s Periscope Pictures, the eleven-minute film Queen of the Crows will play in the CANADA: Not Short On Talent program at the Short Film Corner during the Cannes Film Festival.

Winner of CBC’s 3-2-1 Award, Queen of the Crows tells the story of an eleven year-old girl who gets in trouble for acting like a crow, starring Charlottetown’s Kristen Thompson and Kelly Caseley.

“We are thrilled,” says Wagner. “So many great people worked on this and it is an honour for us all to be a part of such an important festival.”

Telefilm Canada selected a program of thirty Canadian shorts, including Queen of the Crows, to represent Canada at the Short Film Corner and screen at the Cannes Market Theatre. CANADA: Not Short on Talent is an industry initiative designed to promote Canadian films and talent to international markets. The showcase gives filmmakers a unique forum to connect with buyers, distributors and international festival programmers.

“This is an opportunity to showcase the beauty of Charlottetown and the capacity of our filmmaking community to the world,” says producer, Jason Rogerson. “Cannes is the go-to festival for program directors of festivals and broadcasters from around the world looking for content.”

With the support of CBC Maritimes, Prince Edward Island Council of the Arts, the City of Charlottetown, Overman Jewellery and Art, Prince Edward Home, Springhead Studios, and the Island Media Arts Coop, Periscope Pictures employed a cast and crew of 19 talented islanders in the making of the film.

The festival takes place in Cannes, France from May 14-25, 2014.
