Scope and content

Series consists of records documenting the administrative, creative, financial, legal, production, and publicity and marketing activities of this project. This feature film is a 95-minute comedy that tells the story of coming of age and wanting to go down the road and escape 1970s Cape Breton. This re-telling of a perennial Atlantic Canadian story is now told from the perspective of two girls and the challenges of actually leaving. It was also notable for being written by Tricia Fish as her first script after her year at the Canadian Film Centre. The film was co-produced by Imagex, directed by Allan Moyle, and starred Liane Balaban, Nicholas Campbell, Cathy Moriarty, Andrew McCarthy, Tara Spencer-Nairn, and Mary Walsh. New Waterford Girl was nominated for seven Genie Awards and won best Canadian and Nova Scotia features at the Atlantic Film Festival. It was also screened at film festivals in Berlin, New York, Rotterdam, Sundance, Toronto, and Vancouver. This series contains agreements, applications, a cast list, clearances, correspondence, a crew report, film posters, incorporation documents, payroll reports, a press kit, publicity stills, a script, a synopsis, and video recordings.
