The Stratford Festival holds the annual Lindsay Thomas Memorial Hockey Game to celebrate the life of Lindsay Thomas, an actress who passed away in 2010 after a brave battle with lung cancer. The hockey game attracts a number of actors from the company who hit the ice to continue an on-going rivalry against the production team. Combined with a live band and an auction, the light hearted event raises thousands each year for cancer research.
Like every other participant, I volunteered my time to document the 2014 edition of the event. Filming on a DSLR camera, I interviewed as many participants as possible, ranging from Executive Director Anita Gaffney and Artistic Director Antoni Cimolino to NHL alumnus Greg de Vries. I then edited the footage into a short video that I hope both captures the tone of the event as well as celebrates Lindsay’s life and honours her impact.
