Synopsis: An arthritic Nova Scotia woman works as a housekeeper while she hones her skills as an artist and eventually becomes a beloved figure in the community.
Join us for a different sort of Reel Alternative screening at the Algonquin Theatre. Mirror Lake is a 22 minute short film written specifically as a lead in to a full length feature of the same name. The longer screenplay version currently has a one year option on it while it is being reviewed for potential production. Writer/producer Joel Irwin (of the Framing Place Irwins) and director Mark Boucher are excited to see this process through and are happy to have Reel Alternatives Huntsville screen the short version in recognition of the support Reel Alternatives has given the production along the way.
Tickets purchased in advance at Seven Main Cafe, up to 4:30 pm on the day of the screening are $7. Tickets, if available, are also sold at the Capitol Theatre starting at 6:30 pm on the evening of the show, and are $8. Please remember that Reel Appreciation cards are stamped at time of purchase.
Reservations can be made up until 4 pm on the day of the show. Tickets picked up and paid for prior to 4:30 pm the day of the show are $7. Tickets paid for at the door, even if reserved, will be $8. Deadline for pre-ordered and reserved ticket pick-up is 6:50 pm, at which time they may be sold to the general public.

Each year aspiring students who reside in the Huntsville and Lake of Bays area have the opportunity to apply for scholarship support through Reel Alternatives. Although there are no set funding amounts Reel historically supported students based on need, the project they have presented, or the type of school program that they will be attending. Past winners have completed short film documentaries, and attended some of the best film and media study programs in the Province. Applications are available in late April and are available from the Huntsville High School.
