Film screening in River John
July 18, 2019 –
The Sunrise Film Festival will be screening the comedy ‘The Only Game in Town’ plus a short film at the River John Fire Hall as a fundraiser for the fire hall. Tickets are $10 and are available at the door and there will be a licensed bar. ‘The Only Game in Town’ is the story of Cormack Vertue, an autistic teenager with a unique ability: his super skill at the card game solitaire. This skill lands him on his school’s solitaire team, complicates his social life and sends him on a quest to establish who he really is and what he stands for. The film, which was filmed entirely along the north shore of Nova Scotia and featured many local residents, was a semi-finalist in the Sydney (Australia) Indie Film Festival in 2018 and semi-finalist in the Comedy World Network International Film Festival in Las Vegas.
