“… The first full-length feature film shot in the N.W.T. is quickly becoming a celebrated selection at some major Canadian film festivals.
Mohawk-actor Kawennárhere Devery Jacobs won the award for best performance in a Canadian film at the Whistler Film Festival on Sunday for her performance in The Sun at Midnight.
“I’m just filled with gratitude,” said Jacobs in an interview Tuesday. “I had no expectations going to shoot it in the Northwest Territories. We just went to film this ultra low-budget project, and it was such a passion project that I really hold dear to my heart.” […]
It’s the first acting award Jacobs has received, and she credits Carthew’s talent for the win.
“It’s all because of our writer-director [#Yellowknife’s] Kirsten Carthew. Her writing, if you look at the film, there really isn’t a lot of plot-driven stories, so it really rests on the shoulders of myself and [co-star] Duane Howard to carry the film, which I haven’t’ had the opportunity to do in past projects.” […]
The Whistler Film Festival marks the film’s second screening outside the N.W.T.
The Sun at Midnight also screened at imagineNATIVE in October, complete with a standing ovation from the audience.…”
