CALGARY | NewsDispatch from CIFF: A socially distant world premiere of Jasmine Road

Stephen Hunt Digital Producer @CTVStephenHunt Published Monday, September 28, 2020 9:32PM MDT

CALGARY -- Lots of films have premieres, but only a select few can say they had a pandemic world premiere.

One of them is Jasmine Road, a new drama by Calgary director and screenwriter Warren Sulatycky, which had its socially distanced premiere Sunday as part of the Calgary International Film Festival.

The event took place at Eau Claire, in what appeared to be a sparsely attended screening more suited to a Tuesday afternoon at Chinook Mall than a world premiere — about 35 of us — until it dawned upon me that this is what 'sold out house' looks like in a pandemic!
