Just over a year ago, in October and early November, 2015, the feature film The Northlander finished location shooting in the Drumheller Valley. Now it is coming back to the valley in its finished form.
"We're calling all the posse and going hey, we're bringing the movie to Drumheller, right where it was filmed," announced Angela White, unit publicist for The Northlander. "I'm quite excited, we're all excited and we're all going to come down there."
The move tells the story of a mutant hunter and his struggle to help his people survive in a post apocalyptic world.
"Vice Magazine listed The Northlander as one of the eight most important indigenous films on such a large scale," noted White. "It was placed among masterpieces like Smoke Signals and Once Were Warriors."
The Northlander had its Western Canada premiere last month in Calgary and has won a number of honours, including a nomination as best Canadian feature film at the Montreal World Film Festival and winning for best screenplay at the Alberta Film and Television Awards.
"(It'll be shown at) 7:00 p.m. at the Napier Theatre on December 5," outlined White. "It's like a theatrical release in Drumheller. We're going to have some of the actors come out and  Benjamin ( director Benjamin Ross Hayden) of course will be there."
