Campanelli’s own feature-length director’s chair debut is the thriller Momentum.
“The world premiere of Momentum was on the exact same screen as my first-ever student production,” says Campanelli. That venue is Concordia’s Sir George Williams University Alumni Auditorium in the Henry F. Hall Building.
Momentum was shown in July 2015 as part of the Fantasia International Film Festival — one of the largest genre cinema events in North America.
In 1983, Campanelli’s 10-minute piece From a Whisper to a Scream met its first audience under that same roof.
