It’s elementary!

A Prince George-based film organization could be eyeing its first international recognition in the country of a setting to one of it’s productions.

Barker Street Cinema’s The Doctor’s Case is nominated for three awards among 15 categories at the Romford Film Festival in East London, U.K., which begins today (Aug. 13) and runs until Aug. 19.

According to it’s official Facebook page, the 2017 movie has two acting nods and one for the overall feature:

  • Best Supporting Actress - Denise Crosby
  • Best Supporting Actor - William B. Davis
  • Best Featured Film

The Doctor’s Case is produced by Prince George’s own Norm Coyne and directed by James Douglas, and was filmed in several locations spanning from northern B.C. to Vancouver Island.

The film is based on the 1986 best seller of the same title by Stephen King, which depicts the story of Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson exchanging roles in order to solve the mystery of a murdered English lord.

It already has three awards from film festivals in Canada and the United States to its name since officially going public, including one for acting and two in story and screenplay writing.

The Doctor’s Case is scheduled to be the final film for viewing at the Romford Festival, 6 p.m. on Aug. 19.

The online awards banquet is set for Aug. 18, the night before its official showcase.
