The Mill

Directed by David Craig.

The divided community of Pictou County, Nova Scotia is facing a major turning point in the fifty-year old controversy surrounding the pulp mill located on the shores of Pictou Harbour. Will the mill, considered the dirtiest in Canada, finally clean up its act or will the Government of Nova Scotia allow a new plan to allow the mill to pipe its treated waste directly into the Northumberland Straight?

Five Bucks at the Door: The Story of Crocks N Rolls

Five Bucks at the Door: The Story of Crocks N Rolls

In the mid-’80s and early ’90s, the heyday of indie rock, Crocks N Rolls became the epicentre of Canadian pop culture. Located in Thunder Bay, Ontario, atop the iconic Highway 61, Crocks (as it is affectionately called by its patrons) was a bridge for East and West coast musicians crisscrossing their way through the country. The story focuses on those pre-internet days of D.I.Y. culture and the grassroots alternative movement. The documentary talks with seminal independent Canadian musicians each having a personal connection to the venue and its owner Frank Loffredo — who turned his family-owned Italian restaurant into a premiere Canadian venue. All roads lead to Crocks, and 30-years later its impact is still being felt.

Director: Kirsten Kosloski.
