Local Filmmaker Presents Festival Screening Fee as Donation to Meaford Museum

Local filmmaker Amy Phelan, whose short film John Muir at Trout Hollow has been selected for the Meaford International Film Festival (MIFF), has donated her festival screening fee of $300 to the Meaford Museum.

I have always been interested in John Muir’s time in Meaford, and when I was making the movie, the Meaford Museum was a wonderful resource. In return, I want to use this film to raise support for the museum. The film is near the end of its festival run and I hope it will continue to raise funds for the museum, perhaps through virtual screenings,” said Phelan.

Moonlight MIFF is taking place as a drive-in event at the parking lot of the Meaford/St. Vincent Community Centre on Sept. 4 and 5. John Muir at Trout Hollow will be shown on both evenings, accompanied by a feature film and music from local musician Victoria Yeh. Tickets are $50 per car and available at
