HOMEGROWN Twenty-two dancers from Lloydminster's Studio Encore are featured in tonight's movie premiere of Late Harvest, directed and filmed by Lloydminster filmmaker, Bnajamin Musgrave. A private screening takes place at Vic Juba Community Theatre at 5:30 p.m.

Roll out the red carpet for local filmmaker Benjamin Musgrave.
The much awaited premiere of Musgrave’s debut movie, Late Harvest, is set to screen at the Vic Juba Theatre at 5:30 p.m. tonight as part of the Wells 2016 Red Carpet private screening.
Hosted by Wells Asset Management and the Wells Plus 6ix Entertainment Fund, the evening will feature a private screening of a yet-to-be-disclosed major motion picture, the financing of which was completed by one of the funds key investment partners.
Musgrave is credited as writer, director, cinematographer and co-composer of the original score of this short film musical.
He said the whole inspiration for the film came from listening to music that reminded him of the vast, open fields of wheat, and he decided to create a story around that image.
“In the most basic sense it’s a story about generations, a farm that’s been in this family for generations and now it’s to go to the youngest son, and the youngest son doesn’t want that,” said Musgrave.
“He has other aspirations and ideas of what he wants to do with his life.”
Late Harvest has gained province-wide attention for its original visual style and was nominated for the Alberta Spirit Award at the Calgary International Film Festival in September, and was selected to screen at the Edmonton International Film Festival in October.
Filmed almost entirely in Lloydminster, Late Harvest is the result of the collaborative efforts and support of many locals who provided services from logistics to locations, transport, accommodations, catering and crew.
Musgrave is the son of Scott Musgrave, owner of Musgrave Agencies who helped his son pick film locations in the area last September.
The film was shot over five days at the height of harvest in the wheat fields around the Lloydminster, and in a purpose built set constructed inside a hanger at Lloydminster airport.
Late Harvest also features the creative talents of local choreographer, Katie Theiss, and 22 young dancers from Lloydminster’s Studio Encore who rehearsed for weeks in preparation for their visually stimulating dance sequence through the golden grain.
The hosts are expecting a full theatre, so ticket holders are advised to arrive early to assure a seat.
