(Wednesday Sept. 21 :: Jack Singer Concert Hall)Our Opening Gala film is the romance biopic MAUDIE, celebrating the life and career of Nova Scotian folk artist Maud Lewis. Shining a light on marquee films, galas celebrate the year’s highest accomplishments with a screening and a party.
MAUDIE charts the unlikely romance between Canadian folk artist Maud Lewis (Sally Hawkins, BLUE JASMINE) and the reclusive Everett Lewis (Ethan Hawke, TRAINING DAY). Maudie rose to fame in the 1960s, becoming an internationally celebrated artist while living with crippling juvenile rheumatoid arthritis.
Director Aisling Walsh, cast member Kari Matchett and producer Mary Young Leckie in attendance!
