A Race to the Wire: DARK HORSE wins Leacross Foundation “Best of Fest” Award

And on that happy note: that’s it!

The 8th Annual Wakefield Doc Fest has ended, with great revelry. It was a BEAUTIFUL Spring-like day on February 26, 2017 in Wakefield, Quebec, and still, a great huge crowd of dedicated film enthusiasts decided to sit in a dark theatre instead of enjoying the temporary release from winter for our final screening, DARK HORSE.

Could it be that they had heard of the fantastic gourmet snacks being prepared by our chef, Alison Scott, for the Closing Gala following?

Well possibly. True to her modus operandi, Alison prepared fantastic grub in keeping with country of origin of the film: Welsh rarebit, for instance, and miniature Yorkshire Pudding bites and Bara Brith. Yum!

Although the audience did also enjoy the film with great enthusiasm. So maybe it wasn’t all about grub. Or maybe it was a perfect package.

Next up is the Wakefield Doc Fest Weekend in the fall. Mark your calendars! We’re booked into the Centre Wakefield La Pêche for the weekend of 22 – 24 September, 2017 to screen our second themed weekend mini-festival of recent, feature-length, internationally acclaimed documentary films. News of the theme will be coming shortly.
