Shanks' "Arctic Blast" Hits Australia in August

The Australian is reporting that the movie Arctic Blast, which stars Stargate‘s Michael Shanks, will be making its premiere in Australia in August. Here are the details:

THE Tasmanian film Arctic Blast will have its premiere at the fifth Canadian Film Festival in Sydney in August. The sci-fi action thriller, directed by Brian Trenchard-Smith, is an Aussie-Canadian co-production starring Canadian Michael Shanks (Stargate SG-1) and Australia’s Indiana Evans, Alexandra Davies and Robert Mammone. The eco-thriller, about a solar eclipse blasting super-chilled air towards the Earth, is Trenchard-Smith’s first Australian film in more than a decade. “I am proud to have made a movie with a climatologist as the hero,” he says. “Shooting in Tasmania with a crew of young enthusiasts and fellow old lags was a blast, an Arctic blast in fact.” Sydney’s Canadian Film Festival runs from August 2 to 8.

Possible Worlds Blog, the go-to site for the Canadian Film Festival, reports that the movie will premiere Wednesday, August 4, at Dendy Opera Quays, 9/2 East Circular Quay, Sydney. The night’s festivities include “a welcome drink at 6:00pm, followed by the screening at 6:30pm. Tickets are $14 and available from Dendy Opera Quays from July 1st (phone 02 9247 3800 or visit”
