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!

Hey there pals & gals,

Let’s get down to business first…
This Friday (October 22) at 6:00 sharp we’ll be listening to your pitches for the library project. We’d like you to have at the very least, a written synopsis for your project. If you have a screenplay too, bring it. Make sure you bring 3 copies of whatever you’ve got (one for you, one for us and one for the library’s board of directors).

If you can’t make it on Friday, but you’ve got a gem, you can e-mail it to us, but we must (I repeat MUST) have it by Friday at 6:00. Again, please have at least a synopsis written out. It’s up to us Execs to relay your idea to the Library Big-Wigs, so give us all you can to convince ’em that your short is the one that should get made.

Now that THAT’s out of the way…

This week, we’re teaming up with our friend’s from The Moose & Pussy, Ottawa’s only literary erotica magazine, for a screening of ‘”Cloud Nine”. Made in 2008, it;s a German film about about a woman who enters into an affair after 30 years of marriage.
As Jeff Blackman (one of the mag’s editors) puts it, “it’s proof your grandparents still do it, and do it well.”

Since this is a fundraiser for The M&P, there will be a $2 cover at the door BUT that includes all-you-can-eat popcorn! PLUS you can read their magazine online for FREE right here! http://www.themooseandpussy.com/

SO, in summation, please come to 400 St. Pat’s at 6:00 to pitch your idea for the Library Shorts. Please come at 7:00 for a screening with our friends from the Moose & Pussy.


Here’s our caveat: CFS is a safe space. If the film makes you uncomfortable, please excuse yourself. We’re all adults so let’s keep it cool and fun.

Now that the weather is finally starting to cool off, it’s time to start thinking about joining us for another year. Membership for the whole year is $10 and that will get you into all of the workshops and screenings that we host PLUS super bonus extras that will be divulged as the month unfolds.

We’ve already announced the first challenge theme for the year: “Summer Vacation”. Show us what you did (or didn’t do) in your time off. Challenge films are due at our first meeting of the year on September 17th at 6:00 in 400 St. Pat’s. There will be a prize for the best short and bragging rights are always sterling.

There won’t be a workshop per se, but we execs are really interested in what you all want to get out of this year and what kind of stuff you want to see more (or less) of at meetings. We’ll be screening Who Framed Roger Rabbit that night too.

It’s gonna be some good, clean film society fun, so come on down and bring all of your friends.

See you soon!

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),
