My hand-processed super 8 film, “Leave a Note” from our audio-visual project, FROM THE RIVER TO THE OCEAN will be screening at the Nickel Independent Film Festival on June 21st. Thanks to the St. John’s International Women’s Festival for including my film in their list of “16 women-directed films to see” at the festival: https://www.womensfilmfestival.com/blog/2/17-women-directed-films-to-see-at-the-nickel-independent-film-festivalread more
I used my Super 8 camera in Wilmington, North Carolina during my Cucalorus Festival Artist Residency and hand-processed three rolls of film with the help of Andre Silva and Mariah Kramer at UNCW Film Studies. Thanks to Dan Brawley in 2014 for giving me his precious rolls of film! “Now Accepting Food Stamps” was my reaction to feeling heartbroken about the poverty and racism I was witnessing down South. With all that’s been going on in our current world climate, it feels right to share this film. https://theovercast.ca/a-sneak-peak-of-rozalind-macphails-ecma-winning-audio-visual-projectread more

I am pleased to announce an East Coast Music Association (ECMA) award nomination for my original soundtrack, FROM THE RIVER TO THE OCEAN in Electronic Recording of the Year!!! What a huge honour. I really couldn’t have created this soundtrack without inspiration and support from the Cucalorus Film Festival, MusicNL and the talent of some pretty amazing musicians and engineers: Craig Follett, Brent Beshara, Brad Weber, Justin Merdsoy and Krisjan Leslie. See you in Saint John, New Brunswick for ECMA Week!
