>>>WELCOME MESSAGES

> Mayor of Quinte West On behalf of the City of Quinte West and my fellow Councilors, we are happy to support the Hollywood North Film Festival. In a film studio created in 1917 in Trenton, over 1,500 silent films were produced, including Canada’s first major motion picture “Carry On Sergeant”. Even though that era of silent film production came to an end here, we are proud of events such as this one that not only showcases great film from around the world but supports and promotes our local filmmakers as well. I want to congratulate the Hollywood North Film Festival on encouraging the love of film and helping to foster the growth of film making in the Quinte Region and beyond. These events, as well as the talented filmmakers that participate, create a product we all can share in and enjoy as a community. Sincerely, Mayor Jim Harrison 8

And while you are here, we invite you to explore The County and experience all that our community has to offer. Sincerely, Mayor Steve Ferguson

LUCE 1hr 50mins | USA | 14A | Drama/Thriller Directed by: Julius Onah Starring: Niomi Watts, Octavia Spencer, Kelvin Harrison Jr, and Tim Roth An all-star high school athlete and accomplished debater, Luce (Kelvin Harrison Jr.) is a poster boy for the new American Dream. As are his parents (Naomi Watts and Tim Roth), who adopted him from a war-torn country a decade earlier. When Luce’s teacher (Octavia Spencer) makes a shocking discovery in his locker, Luce’s stellar reputation is called into question. But is he really at fault or is Ms. Wilson preying on dangerous stereotypes? Stacked with amazing performances and adapted from JC Lee’s acclaimed play, director Julius Onah has created an intense, multilayered and deeply entertaining look at identity in today’s America.

EASY DOES IT 1hr 35mins | USA | Mature Themes | Drama Directed by: Will Addison Starring: Linda Hamilton, Dwight Henry, Bryan Batt, and Susan Gordon Shot with 16mm for a true â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;70s road-movie aesthetic, Easy Does It follows the scrappy anti-heroics of two Mississippi no-hopers on a treasure hunt of epic proportions. In their chase for the American Dream, these not-so-naturalborn killers somehow stumble into national notoriety as public enemies number one and two. Geeky dreamboat hostage in tow, this trio of star-crossed friends smash-cut their way through the American Southwest in a blaze of fireworks, color gels, and weed-induced animation sequences. An analogue scrapbook of blood-and-paint-soaked folksiness, the film exposes the jacked-up machismo and delusions of grandeur that fuel the aspirational hearts of crooks, cops, and those caught somewhere in the middle.

An experimental visual short film, which exposes how society needs to label a person by their sexuality. In this story, dance and interpretive movement replaces the dialogue, allowing us to use the body to communicate the relationship between the characters and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re true human emotions. Through stylize lighting and abstract visual, Iridescence tells the story of an emotionally repressed abusive father and his son who struggles to accept himself and his sexuality.
