7 pm: Screenings of Back in ‘93 and Season of Dreams

All delegates and the public are invited to wear their favorite team’s jersey, enjoy a BBQ, and take in free screenings, starting at 7 pm at the Army and Navy Club Rooms, 43 Broadway Street East (half a block from the Tailgate Party). Featured are the films Back in ‘93 by Mark Montefiore and Season of Dreams.

Back in ‘93, narrated by George Stroumboulopoulos is about a 10-year-old boy’s coming of age as a closet Montreal Canadians fan growing up in Toronto Maple Leafs loving southern Ontario during the 1993 Stanley Cup Finals.

Season of Dreams is a feature-length documentary that explores Saskatchewan’s love affair with football following a rural six-man high school football team, the Hague Panthers, and an urban twelve-man high school team, the Holy Cross Crusaders, as they prepare and ultimately play out their own season of dreams. Threaded throughout the film are compelling exclusive interviews with Saskatchewan football legends and several well known sportscasters.

The Festival Lounge, located at the Army and Navy Club Rooms, 43 Broadway St. East, will be open to all delegates wishing to mingle, unwind, pick up a guitar and have some fun, from sundown to closing.

8.30 am – 5 pm: SMPIA’s Career Development Program presents Directors Workshop with Stephen Hall, Best Western Parkland Inn

A general overview of issues associated with directing a scripted project (comedy or drama). Eight hours long, consisting of four two-hour sessions separated by breaks and lunch, covering the following subjects:

Blocking — preparation for shooting a scene
Working with Actors — giving playable direction
Axis and Eye line — shooting a table scene
Order of Operation — Why you usually shoot the wide shot first
Scheduling — Making the most of the time you have to get the shot, the scene, the sequence and the show.
The script — what to pay attention to and what to ignore.
Story beats and intention — Why the text of the dialogue can sometimes be irrelevant.
The other half of “directing” — Interestingly, the title “director” only describes half of the job of a director. The other half involves “observing”
Coverage — How to get editors to love you
Sound issues — Ignore them at your peril
Learning how to ask for what you want — (hint: you first need to KNOW what you want)
Art department issues — don’t ask for the impossible. Remember the Good/Cheap/Fast triangle (pick any two)

1.30 pm: Publicity/Distribution Workshop, Best Western Parkland Inn

These days, it’s hard to get any interest from funding agencies without a distributor in place. How do you pitch to a distributor? Is it the same as a broadcaster? How do you know you have the right distributor? Once you have funding in place, how do you let people know about the production? Learn the intricacies of publicizing your production, what works and what doesn’t. How do you know you have a good publicist, and what should it cost? Presenters are Jennifer Chen of Ouat Media and Sarah Fedorchuk.

1.30 pm: Radical Dreamer: The Passionate Journey of Graham Spry, Godfrey Dean Cultural Centre

Free public screening of Radical Dreamer, less than a month after it makes its national television debut. This is a documentary film biography of one of the least known and most influential Canadians of the past century. Spry has been called “The Father of Canadian Broadcasting” for his hugely successful lobby to create a national public radio network in the 1930s. He published a series of influential magazines of cultural and social content during the 1930s. He organized Canada’s first national radio broadcast and lobbied two Prime Ministers into creating what became the CBC. Spry was instrumental in the creation of the CCF (NDP) party. His name is associated with the negotiations for the Independence of India, promotion of the Port of Churchill, the Canadian Wheat Board, universal medical care, pension plans, unemployment insurance, the Bank of Canada and many more of the social and political structures that define modern Canada. He was a friend and associate of Lester Pearson, Tommy Douglas, Norman Bethune, Frank Scott, Frank Underhill and many more of the great Canadians of his time.
