The Crescent Theatrical Run Press Release
After an immensely successful festival run starting at TIFF (Midnight Madness 2017) The Crescent, directed by Seth A. Smith, is returning to Canada for a major national theatrical run.
Smith is a Nova Scotia-based filmmaker and visual artist. His first feature film, Lowlife, received national praise and was released in 25 cities. Now with his sophomore film, Smith is picking up numerous accolades including Best Score, Best Screenplay, and Best Performance by an Actress awards, and a well-deserved nomination for the 2017 Directors Guild of Canada Discovery Award.
The Crescent follows a mother and her toddler son as they struggle to find spiritual healing after an unexpected death in the family. As they attempt to rebuild their bond, a mysterious force from the sea begins to haunt them. The film is a transcendent look at loss, grief and single parenting, told through the entrancing art of marbling and the eyes of a two-year-old.
The Crescent opens at Cineplex theatres in seven Canadian cities, beginning August 10. Ottawa’s The Mayfair will release the film on August 15.

Very cool! This movie has been generating a lot of buzz lately. It’s nice to see it’s getting out there for people to see on the big screen. I’m not in Canada, so I guess I’ll have to wait until September. It’s definitely going on my watch list!
