Sherry White’s MAUDIE to Premiere at TIFF 2016

Posted: July 26, 2016

If you watched SEA AND BE SCENE TV's 2016 Production Report then you know how very much we're looking forward to MAUDIE.

Written by Newfoundland's AFF award winning Sherry White and directed by Ireland born, BAFTA winner Aisling Walsh - MAUDIE is a beautiful love story, based on the true lives of legendary Nova Scotia born folk artist Maud Lewis and her husband Everett.

Filmed in Newfoundland last fall, MAUDIE stars Oscar™ nominated actors Sally Hawkins and Ethan Hawke, and all reports on the film have been fantastic.  So great in fact, it has been selected for a Gala Presentation at the 2016 Toronto International Film Festival this September.

Huge congratulations to the cast and crew of this wonderful Newfoundland/Ireland co-production. We'll be sure to keep you posted on all the marvelous MAUDIE details. SABS
