The 16th Annual Silver Wave Film Festival

The 16th Annual Silver Wave Film Festival

What are you doing November 3-6? If you said “attending the Silver Wave Film Festival”, (SWFF) well then, you are in for a treat!  With over 84 total films, (50 of which are New Brunswick produced films), this year’s festival will definitely be worth its weight in films!

In its 16th year, the SWFF screens feature films, documentaries and short films shot in the province and produced right here, by New Brunswick filmmakers.  In addition, you can expect some of the best film and videos from Canada and around the world. For the full schedule click here.

So if you are new to the SWFF you may be wondering what it’s all about.  Well, first let me mention the sheer affordability of this festival. For an extremely economical $40, you get an “All Access Pass,” gaining entry to any and all films over the 4 day period! You will never find a better price for this type of festival.  If you are student, even better! For $20 you can get the same All Access Pass. 

Always a favourite, the Opening Gala at UNB’s Tilley Hall (November 3 at 7pm) will feature the world premiere of “Beerocracy”, a Fredericton produced film that chronicles the successes and perils of New Brunswick’s burgeoning craft beer industry. Equally impressive is the closing film, “Singing to Myself”.  This film, produced in PEI, is an Atlantic Feature, where filmmakers are challenged to make a film for $1,000 or less.  They accomplished this and the result is a film that is truly impactful.

This festival has great content from beginning to end.  From the popular “NB Shorts” to the Industry series, there is something for all movie buffs. You will be entertained, that I am certain! And let’s not forget Friday’s “Midnight Madness – Aliens, Murder and the Future”, a post-Halloween treat! This screening begins at 11:30pm and features a number of films that will be sure to evoke wonder, curiosity and good old fashioned goose bumps!
