Best of Halifax

Best Filmmaker

Gold Winner Caley MacLennan

Silver Winner Thom Fitzgerald

Bronze Winner Andrea Dorfman

“The first thing: making art, to me, is about collaborating with people the whole time and actually enjoying the process,” says MacLennan, who after a handful of successful shorts premiered his debut feature Noon Gun—your pick for Best Film—at the Atlantic Film Festival in September. “Trying to have back-and-forth dialogue with the audience. This award really gratifies me that I do have audience, that I’m communicating with that audience, and the people who put their hard work into the film in the past year are really winning this award too.” Up next is a web series with John Dunsworth, about a drug-dealing ghost, called Nichols And Dimez.
