... FESTIVALS ::

 

 

Saint John, Jan 12 - Saint John ONE has jumped straight off the springboard into a swirling pool of media art.

 

With an ambitious program featuring three nights of documentary films, animation, short action film, and a broad range of other shorts, along with locally produced films, the stage is set for a great week of art, and film as art.

 

Along with film, music is on the agenda. Each night, a different musical experience and a different set of films to enjoy.

 

Norean Goldston is a member of the organizing team. She describes the event as a playground, and says that anyone who attends will find something to do.

 


 

 “There’s a film festival for the film buffs. Visual electronics in one room. Experimental video looping in another room. Installation art in yet another room. Conceptual art and visual stimulation through sculptures elsewhere. People will be able to watch films, or go to another space and talk while they’re viewing,” she offers, then adds, “It’s pretty much designed for the multi-tasking generation.”

An addition to the line-up this year is the National Film Board, which will present a series of dynamic shorts. Another change is the venue. While last year’s Saint John One was a runaway success and shattered attendance expectations, the expected turnout this year, along with the presentation of art, brought about a need for a large, art-focussed venue. The Saint John Arts Centre became the new home of Saint John One. Organizers promise more and better seating, and a greater number of local films. Special guests will also offer talks. A private, after-event party for sponsors and participants will cap the week.  

 

Advance tickets for Saint John One are available at Imperial Theatre, by calling 674-4100 or 1-800-323-7469; at Harbour Station. Tickets are also available at the door.
