Bootcamp founder Louise LalondeThe upcoming 2nd Annual Charlottetown Film Festival is celebrating the landmark 10th Anniversary of the PEI Screenwriters’ Bootcamp. Bravo Bootcamp! is the focus for the opening night of “the little film festival of big dreams.” With the support of Telefilm Canada, all the films screened on October 28 at City Cinema will be the works of Bootcamp alumni.

A 5-day intensive, The PEI Screenwriters’ Bootcamp, with Louise Lalonde at the helm, has provided a professional development opportunity for emerging and mid-career screenwriters and producers from Atlantic Canada with their own dreams to make feature films, documentaries and tv/web series.

Louise Lalonde reports, “We have so many success stories now that it’s impossible to ignore the importance of Bootcamp in building careers. PEI may be small but we are making a big impact in Atlantic Canada’s film industry.”

“Opening night will be a showcase for these dreams coming true,” says organizer Cheryl Wagner. A variety of 12 short films will kick things off at the 7 pm Banquet from Bootcamp screening, including Islander Mille Clarke’s music video My Sweet Rosetta featuring Catherine MacLellan, Wanda Nolan’s animated The Mystery of the Secret Room produced by the NFB, and the CBC’s 2016 Short Film Face-Off winner Mike Fardy’s Moving On.

Alumni Martine Blue’s gritty feature film Hunting Pignut, set in St. John’s and New York City, will be screened at 9 pm, October 28. Recently from its world premiere at the Atlantic Film Festival Martine shared: “Pignut is my first feature film which  would never have happened without your phenomenal Bootcamp. Thanks Louise for everything. Don’t stop.”

Martine will be present for an Q + A after the screening at City Cinema on October 28.
