NFS FestivalVIA Rail Prize WinnerThe Festival was held in Cobourg’s Victoria Hall with finger food from the Dutch Oven. Entertainment was by the talented Andy Earle plus surprise guests from Northumberland Players presented sketches from Macbeth.  Between sketches they sat on two magnificent thrones. Dave Clark played Macbeth, Tiffany Wolters played Lady Macbeth, Mary Liz Clark played the gentle woman and Chris Barnes performed as a Herald to introduce each sketch with his trumpet.

At 9:00pm the door prizes were drawn – NFS organizer Glenda Jackson officiated – and the main prize of a VIA trip for 2 people to Quebec City was won by Estelle Cortesis.

The video includes the ambience of the crowd, some sketches from Macbeth (at 0:54 to 3:55 and 5:03 to 5:49), short sections on Performer Andy Earle plus a gem at the end. That's a one minute part of Summertime by Tiffany Wolters and Andy Earle - 6:14 to 7:24. And of course a snapshot of the winner of the Via Rail door prize.

See photos and video here.

At the Cannes Film Festival in 2014, the Jury Prize was awarded to Director Xavier Dolan for Mommy (in a tie with Jean-Luc Godard for Goodbye to Language) Very moved, Xavier Dolan said: "I am overwhelmed with gratitude towards the Jury. The abounding love makes me realise that we are doing this job to show our love and to be loved." Below is a video of his acceptance speech. Very moving.  This film will show April 26 - details here.
