"A Stone's Throw" Takes Prize at 26th Atlantic Film Festival

Camelia Frieberg‘s “A Stone’s Throw” won the best Atlantic Feature prize as well as best sound design at the recently concluded Atlantic Film Festival in Halifax, Nova Scotia. The sound design prize included a $10,000 CAD service award. Set on the pristine shores of rural Nova Scotia, the film follows the journey of impassioned photojournalist Jack Walker (Kris Holden-Ried) as he arrives unannounced at the home of his sister, Olivia (Kathryn MacLellan). While healing old wounds with his sister, and falling in love with local schoolteacher, Lia (Lisa Ray), Jack must attempt to conceal a dark secret, and is ultimately forced to confront his own unresolved personal history and the consequences of acting blindly. The 26th Atlantic Film Festival took place September 14 – 23. [Brian Brooks]
