Cinefast returns to Pynelogs

CV Arts is gearing up for the upcoming Cinefest 2012-13 at Pynelogs Cultural Centre.

The Columbia Valley Arts Council had a busy and successful festival-filled summer with Mountain Mosaic, Pynestock, the Tour of the Arts, and Art from the Attic all enjoying large, enthusiastic crowds.

Now, with the changing of the seasons, CV Arts is gearing up for the upcoming Cinefest 2012-13 at Pynelogs Cultural Centre.

We have upgraded the sound system so that the audience will no longer have to strain to hear the dialogue, and we have chosen what promises to be an interesting and enlightening line up of films.

The first film in our series is Canadian made, Monsieur Lazhar directed by Philippe Falardeau.

Winner of six Genie Awards including Best Picture and Achievement in Direction, and nominated for Best Foreign Language Film at the 2012 Oscars, this is one of the most unforgettable films of the year. Mohamed Fellag plays Bachir Lazhar, a middle-aged Algerian immigrant seeking political refuge in Quebec and, after the tragic death of a Montreal schoolteacher, pursues the chance to begin his teaching career. Fine performances combine with a complex character study of loss and innocence in this tender tale about the lessons we learn from one another, regardless of age.

The film will be shown on Tuesday (October 9) at 7 p.m. It is a French language film with English subtitles. Please call 250-342-4423 for more information. Doors open at 6 :30 p.m. and tickets are available at the door for $10.

As always, there will be a cash bar and refreshments available throughout the evening.
