The fourth edition of the Hudson Film Festival (HFF) includes a full line-up, including a Gala Opening Night: the screening of, “You Are Here: A Come From Away Story” about the events of 9/11 and how the town of Gander, Newfoundland rallied to care for all of the people stranded on that fateful day. Making a special visit to the festival will be then-Gander Mayor Claude Elliott, who will be part of a Q and A period following the film.
And that is not the only special guest who will be coming to Hudson for this unique festival, says HFF organizer Clint Ward.
“In the coming weeks, we will have exciting news about more very special guests,” said Ward. “Simply put, this year is shaping up to be our best festival yet.”
The Hudson Film Festival annually showcases the best in Canadian cinema and will take place from February 27 to March 3, featuring 11 films. In addition to, “You Are Here”, the festival will offer the notable, “Hochelaga: Land of Souls” and “Anthropocene” as well as a tribute night to young filmmakers in honour of the late Ben McKinnon. The world premier of local filmmaker Kyle Gregor-Pearse’s “Death of a Travelling Lie Insurance Salesman” will also be on offer, and much more.
All films will be screened at Hudson Village Theatre. Passes are on sale now; it costs only $50 for five films.
