{ First Kiss Films } invited to screen vintage film at 31st Annual Genie Awards Celebrity Lounge

8 Mar

Ottawa movie buffs and celebrity-watchers are buzzing about the 31st Annual Genie Awards being held here in the capital! Sometimes referred to as “Canada’s Oscars”, the awards gala will be taking place this Thursday at the National Arts Center and will honour the best in an art form I am extremely passionate about: Canadian cinema.

So it was such an honour when { First Kiss Films } was invited to screen a film alongside other “exceptional products from local and international brands” within the Celebrity Gift Lounge at the Arc Hotel. According to Aaron Deane, Event Designer of STARFISH creative events, the lounge is a “curious space honouring times gone by.” 

Keeping in alignment with the Let’s Bring Back theme of this whimsical space, { First Kiss Films } has created a very special vintage 16mm film loop inspired by the 31st Genie Awards and the lounge’s theme.

I’m really looking forward to unveiling the film tomorrow evening and hopefully getting a chance to speak with some of the talented people who work in the Canadian film industry!
