Nearly 350 people packed the Regent Theatre in Picton Monday night to watch a special screening of the acclaimed documentary Watermark. The film recently received the Toronto Film Critics Association’s 2013 Rogers Best Canadian Film Award. Prior to screening, filmmaker Jennifer Baichwal introduced the movie live via Skype.

Baichwal’s visually stunning film encourages awareness of the importance of water without preaching. The audience offered generous applause at the conclusion of the movie. 

The fundraising event sponsored by Cinefest Picton and The Prince Edward County Field Naturalists [PECFN] made over $2000. This money goes towards legal expenses. PECFN continues its expensive campaign to save Ostrander Point from industrial wind turbines in front of the Ontario Superior Court of Justice beginning next Tuesday.

PECFN’s Cheryl Anderson and the Regent’s Peter Blendell welcomed the near capacity audience.
A preshow highlight was Suzanne Pasternak singi1307704673_Suzy_Photo copyng her song ‘Midnight Migration’. 
Amy Bodman delivered a short review of Watermark to the audience, discussing in particular, how the film’s message relates to Ostrander Point.
Borys Holowacz introduced the six organizations that are involved with protecting Prince Edward County’s South Shore, where Ostrander Point is located.

In summary, it was a magical evening at the majestic Regent Theatre.
