The Disappeared is back at the Atlantic Film Festival for a free open air screening at the Alderney Ferry Terminal located in downtown Dartmouth Tuesday, September 16.
“We are so thrilled to be back at the Atlantic Film Festival where our film had its world premiere in 2012,” states Ralph Holt, one of the film’s producers. “Although it is a fictional story, it’s an all too familiar one to Atlantic Canadians and people whose daily bread depends on risking their lives at sea.”
The Disappeared was written by award winning author Shandi Mitchell, and was shot off the coast of Lunenburg in the fall of 2011. Its cast includes Hollywood actor Billy Campbell and Labrador bornCanadian star Shawn Doyle alongside Halifax actors Brian Downey, Gary Levert, Ryan Doucette and Neil Matheson.
Since its premiere at the Atlantic Film Festival in 2012 the movie has appeared in Canadian film festivals coast to coast as well as the U.S. and Europe. The Disappeared had great theatrical runs in cinemas in Halifax, Bridgewater, Yarmouth, St. John’s and Toronto. Currently it is available on demand on The Movie Network.
The Atlantic Film Festival’s Outdoor Film Experience: The Disappeared takes place at 7:45 PM Tuesday, September 16 at the Ferry Terminal Park by the Alderney Ferry Terminal in downtown Dartmouth. Admission is free and the film is rated 14A for coarse language.
