Algonquin is a poignant film about the complexities of family set to the breathtaking backdrop of Northern Ontario’s Algonquin Park.

This is writer/ director Jonathan Hayes’ feature film debut. It was a great pleasure to have Algonquin’s award winning Executive Producer David Miller (formerly from Kitchener)and fellow (once KW based gal) Producer Jane Motz Hayes as my special guests on Coral FM to talk about this remarkable film. David and Jane also spoke about some great projects past and present plus a very cool film scoop for fans of Rush and writer/musician Dave Bidini. A Future Home Run coming to a Canadian screen near you!)
(And ….you heard it here first …. I think Algonquin is a likely contender for next year’s Canadian Screen Awards!- Coral FM)
The film plays again tonight at Original Princess Cinema, closing out the most successful year of Canada Film Days yet. Congrats to The Princess.
