May the fourth be with you: watch this local Star Wars fan film

In March, we posted this Jedi mind trick (i.e. casting call) for actors to audition for a local Star Wars fan film to be entered in the 2016 Star Wars Fan Film Awards. Today, from a galaxy not that far away, director David Connellan presents his official entry, The Mask of Leia. 

Written by Ian Wilson, and starring Halifax actors Britney Canzi as Princess Leia and Fox Lidstone as a remarkable Han Solo lookalike (check him out in our 2015 Hal-Con photos), the five-minute short is set after the battle of Endor. It's a dramatic piece with an impressive use of digital effect and Jabba the Hut. I've got a good feeling about this. May the fourth be with you!
