Sadly, MIFF is over for another year, thank you to all who joined us and to all the volunteers who made it happen. However there are some terrific film events coming up that might be of interest to the MIFF audience.
On Oct 2nd the Midtown Music and Arts Series is showing “Romance of the Far Fur Country,” at the Roxy in Owen Sound. Made in 1919 in the Arctic – it is Canada’s oldest surviving documentary silent film,
Kevin Nikkel who restored the film will be there AND there will be a live sound track just like the old days performed by a local group called The Silent Film Ensemble, famous for their original compositions for over a dozen silent films such as Faust and The Passion of Joan of Arc.
Also at the Roxy and other venues in Owen Sound on Thanksgiving Weekend The Wild Lands Film Festival returns for a second year featuring documentaries about the founding of Greenpeace and the live of Kurt Cobain. Geoff ever hosts the event which also features locally produced short films, author Lynn Crosby. and some pretty cool sounding parties as well.
Then at Meaford Hall on December 5th, a special anniversary screening of One Magic Christmas which was filmed in Meaford and Owen Sound. The show will feature a short documentary about how Meaford became Medford 30 years ago
