Sault College presents Great Lakes, Great Flicks!

April 10, 2017

One of the greatest things about Canadian films is that, sometimes, they’re filmed in your own backyard! This is especially true for the students at Sault College in Sault Ste. Marie.

For National Canadian Film Day 150 (NCFD 150), Sault College is partnering with us to screen MEAN DREAMS. Part of the film was shot in the area—and you can tell from the stunning Northern Ontario scenery! Some of their students were even involved in the film’s production.

MEAN DREAMS (a Cannes Film Festival and TIFF hit from 2016) is a thriller about two teenagers running from their violent homes, and will be followed by a live Q&A session with director Nathan Morlando and production designer Zosia Mackenzie.

Fun fact: One of our #CanFilmDay recipes is based off Morlando’s first feature film, EDWIN BOYD: CITIZEN GANGSTER. It was created by Chef Joel Grandmont, a local chef at The Mill—which, coincidentally, is where part of CITIZEN GANGSTER was filmed. Talk about a small world!

If you’d like to attend, make sure to grab a FREE ticket on Sault College’s Eventbrite page! Also, find more details on our site.
