Something New at the Short Film Competition – Part II

Saturday , October 27 (while the short film competition ballots are counted)
From 1:55 pm

We are pleased to have both Andrea Vandenboer and Grace Butland with us for this screening of their documentary about Nova Scotia artist Louise Pentz, Silent No More. Beginning at 1:55 pm, after the ballots have been collected from the Short Film Competition (and while they are being counted), the audience is invited to stay for this 27 minute documentary about Louise Pentz, who works for social justice through her art.

In 2015, the Parrsboro Film Festival showed “Mother Earth”—also about Louise Pentz—as part of Ben Proudfoot’s 2015 compilation Life’s Work.

This screening begins with an introduction by its writer and co-director Grace Butland, along with co-director Andrea Vandenboer. There will be Questions & Answers afterwards.

The winners of the 2018 Short Film Competition will be announced after the Q&A (shortly after 2:30 pm).
