MARK CRITCH Wins Best Actor at AFF

Posted: September 20, 2013

Talk about your first impressions!!!

NL fella Mark Critch made his feature film debut at the Toronto International Film Festival in THE GRAND SEDUCTION. The movie that stars Taylor Kitsch, Brendan Gleeson, Liane Balaban and the legendary Gordon Pinsent received huge reviews and a standing ovation to boot.

And then back here at home - at the 33rd Annual Atlantic Film Festival - THE GRAND SEDUCTION was selected as the Opening Gala film AND Mark scores the award for Outstanding Performance by an Actor. Some cool wha?!

We caught up to Mr.Critch on the Red Carpet that opening night  - to talk about everything from his experience making the movie in Trinity Bay, NL, to the friendships he made on set/

And while the night was certainly all about THE GRAND SEDUCTION we did manage to squeeze in a few of questions about Mark's other projects on the go... namely his comedy series SATISFACTION and his reoccurring role as Ned Bishop on Season 5 of REPUBLIC OF DOYLE.


THE GRAND SEDUCTION went on to screen at the Calgary Film Festival and will return to the East Coast when it screens at this year's St.John's International Women's Film Festival next month.

With all the buzz surrounding this movie - including a major studio deal (details pending) - we're certain this will be the first of many big turns on the big screen for Mark Critch.... and rightly so! SABS
