ANNAPOLITANS TELLING OUR STORIES ON FILM 
This informative session will explore Canada’s first feature film, “Evangeline” shot at Fort Anne in 1913, the world’s first documentary “Seaman Courageous” beginning on the waters of the Annapolis basin in 1911 and Annapolitans playing, performing and creating for NFB cameras in “When All the People Play” 1948.

The afternoon, upstairs at ARTsPLACE, will be hosted by Ern Dick, who has been researching the moving images of our community for some 40 years now – and will include the latest research by Chuck Lapp (Halifax film-maker) on the making of “Evangeline”, the findings of Brook Taylor the biographer of Frederick William Wallace, (the maker of “Seaman Courageous”) and the experiences of Doug Parker, Hugh Lawrence and David McClafferty and others in the making of “When All the People Play”.
