Films for thought

  • Oct. 15, 2007 12:00 p.m.

Submitted article–After a successful season last winter, we are preparing for a second year. Sunday’s “Films for Thought” is a collaboration between the Sierra Club, QC Visitor Center, Support Services Society and the Arts Council to make films available and provide an opportunity for viewing, entertainment, education, discussion, and possibly action. Couple of changes this year:It all begins Sunday, Nov. 4 with the Sierra Club’s film “Crude Impact” and they will continue to offer one film a month, and the last Sunday of each month (except Dec.) will be a presentation by locals. Nov. 25 will be Nancy O’Higgins, “Biking in Mongolia”. There are also a couple of “movie theatre” type films ordered, “Hotel Rwanda” is planned in honour of Remembrance Day.Last year’s and this year’s films will be available to any other community to show or to borrow as individuals. They are all best to be seen with others.There is no charge for films but donations are welcomed.
