MPB Dieppe (2005)

Saturday morning at the Dieppe Market was full packed with buyers and sellers, people visiting, dropping by for coffee – generally, it was a high powered meet and greet event that has been taking place since it opened in the summer. Talking to people convinced me that this community venue had just been waiting for someone to get this market started! I came away with enough of Cajun John’s special spice mix to last through the winter.

The 3rd performance of the MPB was at the Acadie Underground Premiere of commissioned super 8 films.
Most of the cinéastes were very nervous and excited first time filmmakers.
During the evening, I divided the time between wandering with the camera and screening video works of Daniel and myself.
