Programmer's Blurb December 2012

By : metro

Season's Greetings everyone,

We begin the month by presenting this year’s Best Feature winners from Toronto’s two biggest film festivals: Xavier Dolan won Best Canadian Feature at TIFF with Laurence Anyways, and Nisha Pahuja won Best Canadian Doc at Hot Docs with The World Before Her. We follow those up with new films by Leos Carax Holy Motors, and William Friedkin Killer Joe, and encore screenings of Who Cares?, about the Edmonton sex trade, and Bill W., about the co-founder of Alcoholics Anonymous.

To celebrate the season, we’ll be hosting It's A Wonderful Life for the Edmonton Food Bank; Reel Family Cinema is screening The Polar Express; DEDFest is showing the remake of Silent Night, and we’re hosting Saint Mick’s Muletide Extravaganza. Then from December 14 to 30, we’ll be presenting Four Films by Hayao Miyazaki, considered by many (including us) to be the world’s greatest animation director. After you enjoy these newly struck 35mm prints, keep your eyes open in the coming months, when we’ll present more films by Miyazaki and his colleagues at Japan’s world-renowned Studio Ghibli.

You can join us here on New Year’s Eve to ring out the old with Shout Out Out Out Out. And the next day, if you’re up for it, you can also ring in the new: our annual New Year’s Day Triple Feature , is Alien, Aliens and Prometheus.

Happy Holidays, and enjoy the films,

Pete, Jill & Marsh
