100 Short Stories – National Tour 2017

Produced, written & directed by Neal Livingston, 2016



100 Short Stories Trailer

100 Short Stories is the latest documentary from acclaimed Nova Scotian filmmaker Neal Livingston, and his first feature-length film.

With his filmmakers typical irreverence, Livingston interweaves tales of predatory capitalism, eco-activism, and contemporary life in Atlantic Canada, engaging in an offbeat and often humorous exploration of energy policy, governance, and regional culture, in a diaristic collage of entrepreneurship and environmentalism. The film presents a first-person account of a years long struggle to develop Black River Wind a renewable energy project, and overcoming an attempted hostile takeover. Meanwhile, the local citizens of Inverness County band together to defeat oil and gas drilling and fraking coming onto Cape Breton Island.

100 Short Stories premiered at the Atlantic Film Festival in Halifax on September 19, 2016. Subsequent screenings where held at the Inverness County Centre for the Arts in Cape Breton on October 6, 2016, and at the Planet in Focus Festival at the University of Toronto on October 21, 2016.

Cinema Verde Prize Laurel 100 Short Stories won the Energy Award at Cinema Verde in Gainesville, Florida in February.
