Hey there cinephiles, here’s a nifty event!

I think the poster says it all, so I won’t re-iterate time and place. What I will say is that this is a great opportunity to chat with one of Ottawa’s most well-known directors.

Keep on smashing!

Hello everyone and welcome to Film Society 2010/2011!

Maybe the number of exclamatory sentences in this post is too high for you, but it clearly illustrates how excited I am to get the ball rolling for film society this year.

This is just a friendly reminder that our first meeting of the year is this Friday, September 17th at
6:00 in room 400 of St. Pat’s. We’re going to be getting to know all of you a little better, so come prepared to tell us what you want to get out of film society this year or what you think you might want to
do later in the year.

We’re also going to be screening our challenge entries for the month of September. It’s not too late to get started to make your challenge entry. Remember: the theme is ‘Summer Vacation’. Show us what you did (or didn’t do), what you hope to do next year or something along those lines. Challenges should be 2-5 minutes or so and burned onto DVD for
screening ease. If you have any questions, just shoot us an e-mail.

We’ll be screening the fantasy/comedy/detective bonanza ‘Who Framed Roger Rabbit’ (directed by Robert Zemeckis and produced by Steven Spielberg) at 7:00. It single-handedly saved Disney from bankruptcy and also marks the first (and so far, the only) time in animation history that Mickey Mouse and Bugs Bunny appeared on screen together.

Here’s the trailer:

So, in short, I hope to see you all on Friday at 6 with challenge
entries in hand (there’s a prize for the winner!) and some ideas for
what to do this year.

Until then!
-Christine Sirois, el Presidente

Next week is the big hurrah to our weekly meetings, and you know what that means… Oh, you don’t? Well nOObz, it means that we will be choosing our execs and president for the 2010/2011 year. Exciting ain’t it?

Remember: it’s not just about the glory. It is actually a fair amount of work. You have to plan stuff and work with CUSA (which is a lot of work in and of itself) but you also get to hang out with cool people and totally geek out about films and stuff too.

If you think you’re the right candidate for the job, come on down to 400 St. Pat’s next Friday and tell us why. It’ll be great. We’ll watch a movie and maybe go for drinks after. Alright? Cool.

Until then (but possibly before),

So this week, we are putting the funded short aside to delve deeply in the world of 16mm Film.

What is it? Well here’s a little description of the format, filming and collecting: LINK

A rep from IFCO will be there to talk about 16mm filming and show some films
And after we’ll have a short program of a curio and a rare film noir/melodrama, that both entertains and comments on post-war society. YAY!

Definitely come down. Our meeting’s still 6pm, Rm. 400. St. Pat’s, Friday Feb. 12
