Telefilm Canada, a federal funding agency for films, announced that another Canadian film will be presented at the Cannes International Film Festival, which be held from May 12 to 23. This film is ZedCrew. It was directed Noah Pink, a 26-year-old director from Halifax, Nova Scotia.
Moreover, ZedCrew will be presented at the Directors' Fortnight.
ZedCrew, a Canada/Zambia co-venture, is a medium length film directed by 26-year-old Noah Pink from Halifax, Nova Scotia. The film gives a unique and raw insight into the contemporary lives of urban Zambian hip-hop musicians. Director Noah Pink was recently selected to participate in the Talent Campus of the Berlin International Film Festival where his first feature film script I Am North was one of three international scripts presented in the event's coveted Talent Project Market.
Finally, this will be the second Canadian to be presented in Cannes for this year. The other film is Les amours imaginaires, the second film from young award-winning director Xavier Dolan (J'ai tué ma mère) that will be presented in the category Un certain regard.
