THE EQUALIZER, shot in Boston earlier this year starring Denzel Washington, is the story of a man who believes he has put his mysterious past behind him and has dedicated himself to beginning a new, quiet life. But when he meets a young girl under the control of ultra-violent Russian gangsters, he can’t stand idly by – he has to help her.
Q & A with Director Antoine Fuqua and Denzel Washington recorded at the Toronto Film Festival.
Just more good stuff from Boston, the production Mecca that was what IMAGINE imagined in 1998!

Gracing our AFM cover is Carlyne Fournier.
She is on our cover because she is the
producer of SILENCE, a New England film
project IMAGINE is featuring in this edition
because we want everyone at AFM to see its
possibilities as a premium feature film.
Carlyne is a New England based producer,
bilingual actress, and voice over artist, who
loves what she does. Born and raised on
the outskirts of Montreal, Carlyne has had
a passion for film since she was eight years
old - already then attending double feature
presentations at local cinemas by herself.
Over the last couple of years alone, Carlyne has gained over thirty credits in the film and television industry, and was the recipient of the “Best Supporting Actress” award at the 2012 Massachusetts Independent Film Festival for her
role in MY PRETTY MAURA.
Some of her most recent projects include: producing the award winning Music
Video “Take my Keys” which features the dangers of teen drunk driving; SPIN THE PLATE where she played Barbara - a tough defense attorney;
THE AMERICAN TEMPLARS where she portrayed the unflinching Lilly Yarborough; JUSTICE IS MIND for her co-starring role as Dr. Pullman; THE WITCHING HOUR with actor Michael Madsen and William Forsythe; and I AM MONRE as the paranoid schizophrenic Gladys Baker.
When not working on improving her craft with her acting coaches, Carlyne spends all her quality time with her family either in Quebec or at home by the
ocean in Massachusetts .
I am very excited about our AFM special edition. Imagine, we are getting the word out to over 8,000 industry professionals from more than 180 countries that are bringing more than $3 billion dollars of purchasing power with them and making over $1 billion dollars in deals at the American Film Market in Santa Monica in just one week! It’s a no brainer for me to spread the word about the very best we have to offer including the one great simple fact that New England is a thriving and serious place to make movies and TV Shows.
New England is open for business! Pay attention! This awareness road goes directly through the heart of the American Film Market. They need to know that some of our states have really fabulous Film Tax Credit programs and perhaps Massachusetts is one of the best in the nation.
