NSI Drama Prize film Divorce Photographer, from writer/director Christine Buijs and producer Shannon Fewster, celebrates its world premiere at the Calgary International Film Festival later this month.
Divorce Photographer screens as part of the Funnily Enough shorts programme on September 25 at 7:30 p.m. and again on September 26 at 1:30 p.m.
In Divorce Photographer, a wedding photographer gets dumped and decides to start shooting divorces instead.
The film explores the flip side of marriage, the pressures exerted on people to be in a relationship and the decision to find happiness in your own way.
