Celebrating Film in Saskatchewan
November 24 - 25, 2014 were busy and fun-filled days at The Sound Stage. For the first time ever, The Sound Stage was converted into a theatre, and over three events and screenings of Saskatchewan productions were shown to local audiences.
Possibly the most pre-schoolers ever to be in The Sound Stage at one time; 250 children and their guardians enjoyed a morning of animated shows and snacks. From stretching along with Space Stretch, playing Simon Says and watching Louie Says, to solving problems with Doowett, the tiny audience laughed and enjoyed treats on a chilly November Monday morning.

Monday evening was a double header featuring both Big Muddy and WolfCop. From the sultry outlaw on the run from the cops and her murderous former lover (Big Muddy) to the alcoholic cop who starts having an odd familiarity with the crime scenes and heightened senses (WolfCop), members of Saskatchewan screen-based media industry came together for a celebratory evening of gun fights.
Tuesday evening was the final event of this two-day extravaganza and saw a star-studded red carpet walk and the official world premiere of the long anticipated movie about Canada's favourite small town, Dog River, Corner Gas: The Movie.
Following the screening guests were treated to a performance by Jess Moskaluke, the 2014 CCMA Female Vocalist of the year.
