Things to do in Sudbury, Sept. 25 to Sept. 30

Produced in Sudbury, the dramatic feature Perspective will premiere at 12:30 p.m. on Friday as part of the Cinéfest Sudbury International Film Festival. Subtitled "Variations on a Love Triangle," Perspective was produced, written and directed by local filmmaker Benjamin Paquette, and features local performers Stéphane Paquette, Patricia Tedford and Pandora Topp. The film is divided into nine chapters, was shot over nine consecutive years, and spans nine years in the lives of three characters named "Alex". Perspective is unique in that it is a film in progress that has evolved over nearly a decade, and will conclude this year. Every year since 2012, a new chapter has been presented exclusively at Cinéfest, along with each proceeding chapter. Each chapter runs 15 to 30 minutes with the completed film running 179 minutes. This Cinéfest screening will be held at the SilverCity Sudbury Cinemas, located at 355 Barrydowne Rd. For more information, the full Cinefest schedule, or to purchase tickets, visit www.cinefest.com.

Walk: According to police, lawmakers and victims’ advocates, Sudbury is a hub where girls as young as 14 are being tricked into human trafficking, moved around the province and forced to have sex against their will. Brenda Miller was inspired by her own story of human trafficking. Her daughter was a victim of sex trafficking. She said the impact it had on her and her family was devastating, so Miller decided to start the first-ever anti-human trafficking awareness walk in Sudbury. The walk takes place Sept. 26. It begins with speeches from 2-3:30 p.m. at the Lockerby Legion parking lot, 2200 Long Lake Rd. The walk will start at 4 p.m. at Sudbury Secondary School, 154 College St. You can visit 1shotcreations.com to purchase items.
