Every year we host the Bleak Midwinter Film Festival in our neighbourhood of Inglewood, Calgary. It might be a stretch to call it a festival as it's more like an informal gathering of a hundred plus people at the Lantern Church - but that's just fine because it's always a blast. We watch fabulous short films, and then have excellent conversations about them during the post-show hootenanny in the church basement.
This year we're trying something different - a variety show featuring films plus live performances by some of our talented local pals. There will also be an animation program for kids, curated by dedicated animation fiend, Nik Thierry. If you're in the area on January 19 and/or February 23, please come!
All proceeds go to charity.
