**Antiguan movie “Trust” Takes Canada by Storm**
Bridget Hanniford – Joseph has made a remarkable entry into the world of cinema with her directorial debut, “Trust.”
This cinematic gem was selected as part of the prestigious 2023 Canadian Film Festival, known as COMMFFEST. Following her previous short film, “My Time Now,” released three years ago, Bridget Hanniford has once again demonstrated her multifaceted talents, serving as the lead character, writer, producer, and director of “Trust.”
The film’s grand premiere took place in Toronto, Canada, a journey that Miss Hanniford herself embarked on to celebrate her cinematic achievement.
The premiere, held on September 16th at the St. Lawrence Centre for the Arts, was a pivotal component of the Antigua Day Celebration, as presented by Commffest.
This special event featured a lineup of Antiguan films, including works by Lawson Lewis, and the Antigua island girl, Christal Clashing O’Reilly. The evening concluded with the Canadian premiere of HAMA Production’s highly anticipated film, “Deep Blue.”
“Trust” delves into the intricate themes of friendship, betrayal, and love: weaving a captivating narrative that resonated deeply with the audience.
Following the screening, numerous patrons approached Ms. Hanniford to express their appreciation for the film’s storytelling prowess. One audience member even remarked that the story bore a striking resemblance to a chapter of her own life.
This independent short film’s warm reception underscores the power of local stories to leave a lasting impact on an international audience.
As Ms. Hanniford prepares to return to Antigua in the coming week, her focus will shift towards the local premiere of “Trust.”
Having received the MADA award at the Festival in Canada, this movie will serve as the centerpiece of the International Film Festival of Antigua and Barbuda 2023 presentation, scheduled to coincide with the nation’s independence celebrations in November.
