Join us for the launch of our monthly filmlovers event with special guest, Jennifer Holness of Hungry Eyes and $5 drink specials!
First Weekend Club has partnered with our friends at the Canadian Film Fest to launch a monthly ‘happy hour’ celebrating Canadian film.
It’s a small world after all, and we want to bring local filmmakers, actors, writers and producers together to get hyped about one another’s projects so that when films hit the theatres, there is a community that supports.
At each event we will spotlight a key figure on the Canadian film scene and we are absolutely thrilled to announce that our first guest is Jennifer Holness of Hungry Eyes. Jennifer is an award-winning writer and producer of scripted and factual TV and films. Jen recently co-created the TV drama series Shoot The Messenger for CBC about cops and journalists that goes to camera summer 2015. She co-wrote and produced the two-part CBC miniseries, Guns, staring Elisha Cuthbert and Colm Feore that won five Canadian Screen Awards, including a shared best writing award for Jen. She also co-created, wrote and produced the thirteen-part comedy series She’s The Mayor for Vision TV. Her list of credits and honours goes on and we will speak with her via Facebook live at the event.
Our first event is Tuesday, May 9th upstairs at the Monarch Tavern, 12 Clinton St., and will feature $5 house pints and shots of Bushmills. See you there!
