The Victoria Island South Film and Media Commission have announced plans for two local screenings in the Greater Victoria area of the new FOX TV drama series Gracepoint. The screenings will take place in Oak Bay at The Oak Bay Beach Hotel and in Sidney at the same time as the FOX TV première. Full details are to follow.
The Greater Victoria area played host to the cast and crew of Gracepoint between January and May, with the area doubling for the fictional Northern Californian town of Gracepoint, the scene of the shocking murder around which the drama develops. The limited series, a remake of the multi-award winning UK series Broadchurch, stars David Tennant, Anna Gunn, Nick Nolte, Kevin Zegers and Jacki Weaver, all of whom made the Island their home while shooting. The shoot finally wrapped last week and the production company took out full page ads in local press to thank residents and businesses for their patience and support.
Gracepoint will première on FOX on Thursday nights as part of the Fall 2014 season
Proceeds from the Victoria screenings will go to the Film Commission to help support future projects in the area.
