The local films screening as part of the Projections on the Plaza series are: Mondays—Queen of the Crows  (Harmony Wagner), Mabel’s Saga  (JoDee Samuelson); Tuesdays—Bluefin  (John Hopkins); Wednesdays—Blobby (Laura Stewart), Rainbow Valley (Alexis Bulman and Patrick Callbeck); Thursdays—A Brief History of Charlottetown (JoDee Samuelson), Crow Agenda (Jason Arsenault); Fridays—Lennox Island  (Jenna MacMillan); Island Green  (Millefiore Clarkes); Saturdays—Queen of the Crows (Harmony Wagner), Mabel’s Saga  (JoDee Samuelson).

Signatures and Projections on the Plaza launched in early July and play back-to-back, starting at 10 pm six days a week. The films are screened on the sandstone walls of the Confederation Centre overlooking Victoria Row. 

On August 6, an informal social will take place immediately prior to the screenings at 9:45 pm. Attendees will have the chance to hear from a few of the local filmmakers featured in Projections on the Plaza, take in the evening’s films and enjoy some free snacks. All are warmly invited to attend the social and celebrate PEI’s local film community.
