Ken Harvey is an award-wining,  Newfoundland-based writer, and now filmmaker. Last year, he decided to give up writing to take on the art of short films. And he’s good. Great actually. Last year his short film, I’m Fourteen and I Hate the World won the Kodak Best Atlantic Short Award in Halifax. Starring his daughter Emma, the film has since been selectioned for ten film festivals around the world including Italy, Russia, India, South American, US and Canada. It has also been nominated for two US-based Maverick Movie Awards for Best Screen play and Best Performance (Song) – Emma sang the song in the film! Most recently, Harvey has created the short, It’s a Girl. In the piece, a teenaged girl (played again by Emma Harvey) tells the story of the mother she never knew. The film is a cinematic interpretation of Ken Harvey’s recent novel, Reinventing the Rose. The short fil has been selected to screen at the prestigious Atlantic Film Festival in Halifax in September
