NB FILM CO-OP MARKS 18th ANNIVERSARY FOR SILVER WAVE FILM FESTIVAL

Silver Wave runs November 8-11, 2018

There are some big surprises to do with Silver Wave this year as it celebrates 18 years.

The 18th annual Silver Wave Film Festival announces its full festival schedule on Friday, October 19, 12 pm, at the Charlotte Street Arts Centre, upstairs auditorium, 732 Charlotte Street, Fredericton, NB. Refreshments will be served and all are welcome.

Silver Wave annually spotlights the province’s vibrant film talent and cultural legacy in film. The festival draws its inspiration from New Brunswick’s extraordinary and diverse collection of films, created by filmmakers from every age group and walk of life. The festival exists to engage fans of all ages in the art of cinema.

The NB Shorts are a focal part of the festival and draw large crowds. The entire festival is a visual feast with local and international programming. This year, the festival has some exciting programming and industry series day changes.

“Silver Wave is a proud moment for all of us who volunteer to put the festival together annually” said Cat LeBlanc, Silver Wave Organizer, and one of the festival’s three programmers. “This year’s festival is designed to bring out longtime movie lovers and fans, and we have new exciting events and changes in scheduling to unveil.”

The upcoming launch is the perfect opportunity to celebrate and support film in NB. Mix and mingle and see the 2018 Silver Wave promo trailer produced by annual SWFF sponsor Rob Parsons of M.A.D. 5 Films.
