(NORTH BAY, ONT.) – The first regional screening of the film ALGONQUIN, recorded in North Bay, is being brought to local audiences by north bay film later this week.
ALGONQUIN, starring Nicholas Campbell and written and directed by Jonathan Hayes, is the story about a family conflict that seeks consolation and resolution in Algonquin Park. Jake’s life is upended when his father – an absentee parent and a man who best days as a travel writer are well past him – insists that Jake help him with his next project, a book about Algonquin Park. The two embark on a journey into the Park to begin their work, and their adventure.
“North Bay was the perfect location for us to film parts of this production,” said Hayes. “The beautiful landscape pairs perfectly with the majesty of Algonquin Park, and we had a great partnership with the faculty and students at Canadore College.”
Hayes relied on the talent of Canadore’s digital cinematography professor Yura Monestime and 10 students to help coordinate site and wardrobe logistics, prepare scenes, assist with filming.
Writer/director, Hayes, will be at the ALGONQUIN screening to introduce the film and take questions after the viewing.
