Huron to Hollywood: Blackberry with Curt Lobb & Mark Hussey

March 21 @ 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm

The Huron to Hollywood film series celebrates professionals from Huron County working in the film and television industry! Each Huron to Hollywood night includes a screening of their films, followed by a conversation with the creatives about their work and careers! If you love film, have ever wondered how movies are made behind the scenes, or are curious about the careers that exist in film and media, join us at the Museum this spring!

On March 21, we will be screening the acclaimed Canadian film Blackberry, with special guests Curt Lobb, film editor, and Mark Hussey, production supervisor. The movie will start at 6:30 p.m., followed by a live Q&A with Lobb and Hussey at about 8:30 p.m. This event is included with regular museum admission (FREE for Museum Members or with your Huron County Library Card). Pre-registration is not required; seating in the theatre is available on a first-come, first-serve basis within a limited capacity. Films are rated 14A and are not appropriate for younger audiences.

About the film: An international success in 2023, Blackberry presents a sharp comedic point of view on the rise & fall of Waterloo-based tech innovator Research in Motion. The movie’s stars include Jay Baruchel, Glenn Howerton, and Writer/Director Matt Johnson. Post-production took place right here in Huron County, at Goderich’s Faux Pop Studios.
