HUGE Congratulations to Cape Breton's Daniel MacIvor as his latest film WEIRDOS took home the 2017 Canadian Screen Award for Best Original Screenplay. Molly Parker also scored the award for Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role for the movie.
WEIRDOS Synopsis - It’s the summer of 1976 and 15 year-old Kit (Dylan Authors), bored and restless, is dreaming of a more glamorous life in the big city, away from the small town where he lives with his Dad (Allan Hawco) and grandmother (Cathy Jones). Enlisting the help of his girlfriend Alice (Julia Sara Stone), they hitchhike towards a new home with his glamorous, artistic mother Laura (Molly Parker). As Kit and Alice reach their final destination their relationship is tested as Kit approaches a realization that will change his life forever.
SEA AND BE SCENE TV was so pleased to go behind the scenes of this special film during production in Ellershouse, Nova Scotia back in October 2015.
