The Newfoundland and Labrador film + TV industry has gotten exponentially stronger over the past decade, particularly in recent years since the end of Republic of Doyle, which freed up Allan Hawco and many, many other talented people here on the island to work on new series’ such as Frontier (now into its third season) and CBC’s adaptation of the Lisa Moore novel Caught, as well as other film projects, from small to larger scale productions.
There are also many new filmmakers budding in the province, such as Grind Mind, continuing to try and up their game as artists using limited to no budgets and creating some incredible work out of sweat, tears, and LOTS of blood.
Now, prepare yourself for an old vision of terror with Benjamin Noah’s short film New Woman (written by yours truly, Father Gore a.k.a C.H. Newell).
Noah’s film takes place in the year 1888 in Newfoundland, where a down on his luck man winds up meeting a mysterious woman not of that land. New Woman just recently finished its meticulous post-production, and Noah’s Ark Film imprint are preparing to take it to festivals around the world, as well as gearing up new projects already.
There are no official screenings set yet. As soon as there’s any news, Father Son Holy Gore will be bringing you dates and times to make sure anybody who’s able can see the film in its entirety.
Make sure to stay tuned for any and all updates!
