President’s Message – September 11, 2018

If you don’t already have it marked in your calendar, September 13th-20th is the 2018 FIN Atlantic International Film Festival. There are many ACTRA Maritimes’ performers featured in this year’s line up including: The Opening Night Gala Splinters, Hopeless Romantic, Halloween Party, The Reel East Coast Shorts Gala, five Atlantic Shorts screenings, as well as the exciting Script Pitch, and Script Out Loud. I encourage you all to come out and support your friends and colleagues, see some terrific films, and enjoy the parties.

Need more incentive? ACTRA Maritimes has 200 single- regular screening ticket vouchers (not galas) available for you. Each member gets two tickets while they last…so don’t delay…simply pick them up at the ACTRA office during business hours, 9:30-5:00pm Monday to Friday.

At the risk of sounding like an infomercial, I’ve got a fantastic bonus offer too. We are giving away a full FIN “The Big Binge Pass,” value $175.00  to one lucky member. We will be drawing the winner at our next ACTRA Council meeting on September 10th, just in time for the Festival, and we’ll announce the winner on our Facebook page. The contest is open to all ACTRA Maritimes’ Members who have a profile on ACTRAonline. You can’t be entered if you aren’t registered “so act now”! To enter, just email Tami at with the subject line “Big Binge Pass Draw”.

If you don’t have a profile on ACTRAonline, please contact Eva or Tami at the office at or and they will send you instructions on how to set up your profile.

UPDATE: The winner of the FIN Big Binge Pass is Ryan Willis. Congratulations Ryan!

And guess what? We had so much fun, we are going to give away another one! This time to be entered you simply have to post a quick video of yourself telling us what Atlantic short or feature you are most excited to see at this year’s festival using #ACTRAbinge. We will make the draw on Wednesday September 12th so don’t delay.

In solidarity,
