THUNDER BAY, ON ---- March 27, 2012 --- An art heist at the Lake Superior Art Gallery? Don’t worry folks, the heist was actually performed by Confederation College Film Production Students for their final thesis film. The gallery graciously lent their location to Crystal Elmy and her crew for her thrilling short film called ‘Bid Number’, a heist that will leave you reeling and asking yourself “who’s the real con-artist?” Using the fantastic and original art from the gallery to colour the film, Bid Number will really hit the crime drama spot. There is no doubt that the talented actors and amazing local work will capture you and hold on until the screen goes black and the credits roll.
‘Bid Number’ hits the big screen on the evening of April 19th when the Confederation College Film Program premieres a new batch of short films from the graduating class at Silvercity Cinemas.
The program of 20 short films spans a vast array of genres and styles from comedy and drama and action to horror films. There is also an engaging documentary that tells the story of varsity wrestler, Emma Brightwell as she chases gold at the CIS Championships.
“After three different scripts, and multiple drafts later, it may seem like there’s no light at the end of the tunnel,” claims Crystal Elmy, who directed ‘Bid Number’ “But with a strong and dedicated crew and talent, your script will always prevail.”
The event is free with voluntary donations to the Starlight Children’s charity and is open to everyone.
