Director McGowan on hand for film fest screenings

Ancaster News

The Ancaster Film Fest will screen Michael McGowan's Still Mine, starring James Cromwell and Geneviève Bujold, on Monday, Jan. 28.

Still Mine will screen at 1, 4 and 7:15 p.m., with the box office opening at 12:15, 3:15 and 6:15 p.m., respectively.  There are a limited number of seats available for non-members who may attend maintees for $9 and the evening screenings for 10.

Writer/director Michael McGowan will be on hand after the 4 and 7:15 p.m. screenings. McGowan also wrote and directed Saint Ralph and One Week, which were previous AFF screenings.

Still Mine is a beautifully filmed and insightful love story, based on a true life event. Veterans Cromwell and Bujold are superb as they unfold a layered story of a couple with a deep and complicated past facing an uncertain future.

Still Mine screened at the Toronto International Film Festival, opened the Vancouver International Film Festival and was nominated by TIFF as one of Canada's top ten films of 2012. It also received seven major nominations for the Canadian Screen Awards: Best Film, Writing (McGowan), Cinematography, Editing, Original Score, Actor (Cromwell) and Actress (Bujold).

The Ancaster Film Fest donated $1,000 from its previous screenings to the Hamilton Out of the Cold Program and $400 to the Grandmothers to Grandmothers campaign. Proceeds from the Jan. 28 screenings will go to Out of the Cold.
