Broadcast Date – September 6, 2017
Today we’re catching up with a very busy New Brunswick born, Nova Scotia-based gentleman by the name of Wayne Carter at his bustling Halifax office – although very busy might be an understatement because in just a week’s time thousands of filmmakers, industry folk and movie fans will meet up and hunker down for the 2017 Atlantic International Film Festival.
As Executive Director of the 8-day festival Wayne’s time is in demand so we’re grateful to get a smidge of the man’s time. I’ll let you know you’re bound to hear the ringing of phones, chiming of texts and all sorts of excitement on my part as we chat about FIN. That’s the new brand for the festival – which we’ll discuss along with all the movies, events and star sightings in store for this year’s bigger-than-ever event. Here’s my conversation with Atlantic International Film Festival’s Executive Director Wayne Carter!
