Hi Cinephiles!
It is nearly Film Festival time.  We'll schedule several during the festival as official events.  As always though, we'll be attending 30 or 40 non-organized films.
I will encourage members to post a list of films so that when possible we can have informal meets in the food court or even at one of the classy spots nearby.
As always, I'll post a Cine Arts discount code for tickets.
I would strongly suggest joining the CIFF for both the early film info (I'll post a .pdf document on this site when the schedule is released to CIFF members on February 21.  If you join the Festival you'll be able to purchase tickets before the general public as well as benefit from an additional discount on tickets.
If you've never been to the CIFF - this festival is a BIG DEAL!
Bill

Our Closing Night awards program will likely draw 2,000 people on the evening of Sunday, March 30th.
