Movie shot in Red Deer and Lacombe is nominated for Alberta film award

‘Cor Values’ is up for a Best Feature Rosie

A murder mystery movie shot in the Red Deer area in 2017 is nominated for a Rosie Award.

Cor Values features several Central Alberta locations that stand in for Idaho, including downtown Red Deer and Lacombe. The film has been nominated for best dramatic feature by the Alberta Media Production Industries Association.

“It’s very encouraging — we’re thrilled!” said Dean Busch of Red Deer’s Bubbadog Productions. He co-produced the film with Morgan LeBlanc and Gilbert Allan of Link to the Past Productions.

Cor Values, starring Morgan LeBlanc, and Erika Eleniak of the Baywatch series, is about a reporter named Cormack who returns to his hometown. He rekindles an old relationship, starts a new one, and begins solving a series of local murders.

While the film hasn’t found a Canadian distributor yet, Busch said it’s being streamed in seven other countries, including to American Amazon Prime customers. It’s also being sold as a DVD at Walmart and Target in the U.S.

Cor Values previously won Best Thriller at an Ottawa film festival.

The partnership between Link to the Past and Bubbadog Productions companies is continuing with the movie No Apology, which just finished filming in Beaumount. Busch said the companies’ goal is to use as much Albertan and Canadian talent as possible on their projects.

The 2019 Rosie Awards will be held April 27 at the Edmonton Convention Centre.
