Cinéfest Sudbury is pleased to unveil its early selections for the Features Canada program for the 31st edition of the festival. The Features Canada program is representative of outstanding Canadian feature films.
Brotherhood stars Brendan Fletcher, Brendan Fehr, Jake Manley. Based on a true Canadian story, a band of teenage boys arrive at Long Point Camp in the summer of 1926. When their canoe capsizes in a freak summer storm on Ontario’s Balsam Lake, their holiday descends into a soul-shuddering fight for survival. Brotherhood tells a story of bravery, sacrifice, and selflessness. It will be up to the two adult leaders and the most rebellious member of the campers to try and save the boys.Brotherhood was filmed on location in Sault Ste. Marie as well as on the Michipicoten First Nations near Wawa.
Honey Bee with Julia Sarah Stone, Martha Plimpton, Michelle McLoed, Peter Outerbridge. When charming Ryan Dawes (Love) hands 14-year-old Natalie “Honey Bee” (Stone) a brand-new phone with his name etched on the back, she can’t help but blush. No one has ever given her anything, let alone someone as handsome as Ryan. But when Natalie gets picked up by the cops for underage prostitution, her boyfriend-pimp suddenly disappears and she finds herself alone on a farm, in the middle of Nowhere, Ontario. Honey Bee was filmed in North Bay.
All Features Canada screenings will take place at SilverCity Sudbury Cinemas, located at 355 Barry Downe Rd. Cinéfest Sudbury International Film Festival runs from Sept. 14 –22.
