Free film screenings at the Fredericton Playhouse begin TONIGHT!

by on October 4, 2010

The Fredericton Playhouse is pleased to offer a series of innovative workshops and enrichment activities that take place in conjunction with our Spotlight Series performances. This month we’re offering two FREE, public film screenings that honour the creativity and passion of a notable Canadian musician and a filmmaking legend.

TONIGHT at 7pm, the Playhouse will be offering Bruce Cockburn fans the chance to take a peek into the life of a man whose body of work is a testimony to his staying power in the industry. My Beat: The Life and Times of Bruce Cockburn is the first one-hour documentary exploring the life, music, passion and inspiration of a Canadian music icon. From his early days as an aspiring musician to his recent induction into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame, Bruce Cockburn’s 30-year career has touched the hearts and challenged the minds of listeners around the world.

On October 7 at 7pm, film aficionados and fans alike will be treated to a look inside the mind of Norman McLaren. In Creative Process: Norman McLaren, director Donald McWilliams demystifies the process of artistic creation. Drawing on McLaren’s private film vaults, a gold mine of experimental footage and uncompleted films, McWilliams explores McLaren’s methods, including his celebrated “pixilation” technique, and his daring forays into animated surrealism. He reveals sources of McLaren’s creativity and shows how they were transformed into cinema. This film is a unique examination of creativity, and a journey through McLaren’s own extraordinary creative process.
