Barrie Uncovered

One Last Push

Hello Barrie!  This is the last weekend for now that Barrie Live Music is fundraising for our local Food Bank!  Let’s knock the donations right out of the park this weekend!

Barrie Uncovered in partnership with Canada’s Top Mayor Award Program have been so happy to have been able to help!

Now we’re asking you to sit back, relax and enjoy the incredible offerings of talented local musicians and really considering making a donation.

Barrie Live Music – a platform created by Jake and Jorden Mathias – has not only given our local talent a platform to entertain by, but an incredible way of raising funds for various charities that are so affected by our “Stay at Home” orders.  Thank you from all of us!

BFF Short Film Competition Is Open

Send In Your Entries For The 2021 Short Movie Showcase

The Barrie Film Festival’s Short Film Competition is open for business.

This year’s BFF Short Film program is on the hunt for movies to fill out the showcase later this year.

The competition is one of the featured (and more popular) programs held during the ten-day festival every year.

The lineup features a section of local filmmakers, as well as international productions.

The top 3 movies in every section earn cash prizes, including the high school and Simcoe County categories. And all selected entries get to have their film shown on the big screen!

There’s also the audience choice award, voted on by the guests in attendance.

Listen to our interview with BFF Director Claudine Benoit

A number of past local winners have gone on to successful careers in film and video production, and the showcase routinely receives upwards of 500 submissions from all over the globe.

Hit up the submission website to learn more about the BFF Short Film competition!

Barrie Live Music & Bring Your Eh Game Raise Funds For…

Jake Mathias, creator of Barrie’s Live Music Show and brother Jorden have raised over $100,000.00 for local charities with March 28th marking their 1st year anniversary.

What a Great Platform!

Providing a wonderful platform for musicians to share their passionate talent virtually, we have been able to stay connected to our favorite local artists!

Teaming Up With:

Coming full circle this past year, they have teamed up with Dawn Mucci of Canada’s Top Mayor Award and Food Bank Canada for the entire month of April!

Canada’s Top Mayor Award, founded by Dawn has been a wonderful supporter of the Canada Food Bank Covid-19 Food Relief initiative through the Bring your ‘Eh Game series!

With many very exciting special guests joining Barrie Live Music this month it’s a great show and a great cause to support!

Sponsored By:

Sponsored throughout by Rock 95 and many more –  Barrie Uncovered has also stepped up on behalf of the cause.

Just under $2000.00 from the beginning of April – they are well on the way to a record month of donations!

And Special Thanks To...

Jumping in with a huge assist is Danny Mucci of Mucci Farms, Kingsville, Ontario, with a truckload donation of fresh produce to our local Barrie Food Bank.

Danny tells us, “At Mucci Farms, giving back to the community is a high priority.  After the year we’ve all had, it’s more important than ever to raise awareness and place an emphasis on building immune systems by increasing consumption of fresh fruits and vegetables.  We also realize that healthy eating options aren’t necessarily available to everyone so we are proud to support a variety of initiatives and organizations to make it possible.”

Helping So Many...

Sharon Palmer, the newly appointed Executive Director of the Barrie Food Bank, is thrilled at the support of the local community.

“More and more families in our city are relying on the Food Bank to cover dietary needs and supplement their groceries since the beginning of Covid.”

We couldn’t be happier at the platform created for the artists we so have so dearly missed this past year!

It was so much fun getting everyone together via Zoom to discuss what we could do and introduce everyone!  Watch the video for that discussion!
