Message from the Executive Director
NB Filmmakers’ Co-operative
A warm welcome to everyone as we celebrate the fifteenth anniversary
of the Silver Wave Film Festival. It has been an incredible journey so
far, and we are delighted to once again be able to showcase the best
films from New Brunswick and away.
This past year has been a challenging one for our colleagues in the
commercial film industry both here and in Nova Scotia. We hope that
the situation will improve in the coming year and that we can look
forward once again to a thriving industry in the Atlantic region.
Tony Merzetti
Our filmmakers are a resilient lot and judging by the quality of the work
on display this year, they are pouring their hearts into their stories. We
hope that you will join us in celebrating the creative cinematic content
of the film artists from New Brunswick and beyond.
Message du Directeur Exécutif
NB Filmmakers’ Co-operative
Une chaleureuse bienvenue à tous en cette quinzième édition du
Festival du Film Silver Wave. Jusqu’à maintenant notre aventure a valu
le détour et nous nous réjouissons de pouvoir présenter encore une
fois les meilleurs films du Nouveau Brunswick et d’en dehors de la
province.
Cette dernière année a été difficile pour nous collègues de l’industrie
commerciale cinématographique, autant ici qu’en Nouvelle Écosse.
Nous avons espoir que la situation s’améliore dans l’année qui vient
et que nous pourrons retrouver avec joie un milieu florissant dans la
région atlantique.
Nos réalisateurs font partie d’un groupe tenace et, à en juger par la
qualité des œuvres que nous vous présenterons, ils mettent cœur et
âme dans leurs films. Nous espérons que vous vous joindrez à nous
pour célébrer la créativité cinématographique des artistes du cinéma
du Nouveau Brunswick et d’en dehors de la province.

Message from the Vice President
NB Filmmakers’ Co-operative
Britany Sparrow
On behalf of the New Brunswick Filmmakers’ Co-operative and its
staff, board and membership, I am pleased to welcome you to the
15th annual Silver Wave Film Festival. For 15 years, Silver Wave has
been bringing together filmmakers from around the province to
celebrate another year of movie making in New Brunswick. Every
year, the quality of the films that come out of New Brunswick
continues to improve, and this year’s Silver Wave is a wonderful
opportunity to showcase and celebrate all of the writers, directors,
actors, technical crew, and all of the others who work so hard to tell
New Brunswick stories on film.
The independent film community in New Brunswick is a truly unique
and special thing. The filmmakers here are passionate, resourceful,
creative, and above all else committed to their art simply for the joy
of creating art. At the heart of this community, the Silver Wave Film
Festival gives a platform for filmmakers to celebrate their hard work
and dedication to their craft, and allows the rest of the community
an inside look at what makes New Brunswick, and its filmmakers,
something worth talking about.
I want to thank Silver Wave’s many supporters, from our sponsors,
the members of the community, and the many volunteers whose
hard work makes the festival possible.
Message de la vice présidente
NB Filmmakers’ Co-operative
De la part de la NB Film Coop, ses employées, son conseil
d’administration et ses membres, j’ai le plaisir de vous souhaiter à
tous la bienvenue au quinzième festival du film annuel Silver Wave.
Depuis quinze ans, les réalisateurs de toute la province se réunissent
pour célébrer une autre année de production au Nouveau Brunswick.
Chaque année la qualité des films qui se font ici s’améliore et le
festival de cette année nous permet souligner le talent des nombreux
artistes, artisans, techniciens, acteurs, et des autres membres qui
travaillent si fort pour créer et projeter leurs films.
La communauté indépendante du cinéma au Nouveau-Brunswick
est vraiment unique et spéciale. Les réalisateurs d’ici sont
passionnés, créatifs, débrouillards, et surtout consacrés à leur art,
juste pour le plaisir de créer. Au cœur de cette communauté, le
Festival du film Silver Wave permet aux réalisateur de trouver un
tribune où fêter leur labeur et dévouement à leur métier, et permet au
reste de la communauté de découvrir que le Nouveau Brunswick et
ses réalisateurs valent le détour.
Je tiens à remercier tous ceux qui nous appuient, que ce soit nos
commanditaires ou le grand public, et nos nombreux bénévoles
dans la réalisation de ce festival. Il n’existerait pas sans eux.

Then Then Then
Director/Producer: Daniel Schioler/Length: 29:50/Montreal, Quebec, 2015
When protest fails, what’s left?
A hypnotic and unsettling blend of archival footage and music, Then
Then Then offers a stark glimpse into the moral struggles of a
generation coming to terms with its own inability to affect social
change. Lesser-known acts of protest spotlight dissenters’ turn to
more radicalized acts of protest against those in power and the
machinery designed to stifle their opposition.
This meditation on civil disobedience is a timely reminder of the
lengths some have gone to in order to have their voices heard.

Noon Gun
Director/Writer: Caley MacLennan/Producer: Caley
MacLennan, Jessica Brown/Cast: Jarrett Shaw, Holly
Ovadia, Gloria Williams, Taylor Olson, Mo Brown,
David Wojcik/Length: 70:00/Halifax, Nova Scotia,
2015
Every day in Halifax, a neutered but
ceremonial blast fires from a cannon. The
Noon Gun sends a rattle through the old
wooden homes of the North End.
Within one of these homes, an elderly woman
dotes over her graffiti writer grandson. An
interracial couple walk tensely down a side
street. A recovering alcoholic cop lectures his
street-wizened young partner as they walk the
beat.
On one day in particular, the Noon Gun blast
ties these groups into a sequence of events.
As these events unfold, each group’s
perspective grows, obscuring reality and
ultimately affecting each other’s lives.
Noon Gun is a story ripped from writer/
director Caley MacLennan’s heart. Focused
on storytelling and performance, the style is
reminiscent of Dogme 95 films.

The Utrecht Seals/Les sceaux d’Utrecht
(French with English Subtitles)
Director/Writer: Paul Bossé/Producer: Suzette
Lagacé, Mozus Productions/Host: Samian/Length:
91:00/Moncton, New Brunswick, 2014
The Utrecht treaty was signed in 1713. It
changed the face of the world. This
documentary, hosted by the Algonquin
Métis rapper Samian, tells the story from
the point of view of those who were not at
the table to sign this most important treaty
that had consequences for all populations
of America.
Examining these events, we are reminded
of the foundation of our existing economy
which is still based on the devastating
extraction of our natural resources, and we
discover the attitudes and mentality of the
Aboriginals, the Acadians, and the
Europeans in their relationship to the
exploitation of this land.

Kitson, Nathaniel Ing, Adi Vella, Carl Peterson/Length: 76:00/
Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, 2015
When the owner of a struggling comic book store faces
eviction, he must snap out of his fantasy world and become
his own hero in order to save his store, his friendship, and
himself.
Kooperman is a smart, character-driven comedy bromance
that blends rich visuals with a driving laugh-out-loud
plotline, while commenting on society’s obsession with
superheroes in an age of apathy.
Shot on beautiful Prince Edward Island by first time
feature director Harmony Wagner, this film won the 2014
Telefilm Canada Micro-budget Production Fund and showcases a rich
soundtrack of Canadian indie darlings such as Paper Lions, Catherine
MacLellan, Nudie, Coyote and Boxer the Horse.
