What's Happening

Join director Anne Wheeler for a screening of her Genie Award-winning film Bye Bye Blues, a musical drama inspired by her mother’s experience as a musician in a dance band during World War II. The screening will be followed by a stellar lineup of local jazz musicians paying tribute to the music from the movie.  

This bittersweet and poignant film showcases fine performances by Rebecca Jenkins and Robyn Stevan. Bye Bye Blues made Jenkins a star, and was nominated for 13 Genie Awards, including film, director and screenplay. It won for actress (Jenkins), supporting actress (Stevan), and song.

This event is co-presnted by StarFest.
