The 5th Annual Parrsboro Film Festival begins Friday, 23 October and runs until Sunday, 25 October. All films are screened at The Hall (www.thehall.ca), which has a 16-foot retractable screen, comfortable theatre seating and surround sound. The festival celebrates Atlantic Canadian with an original lineup of films, filmmakers, music, and more. Visit the festival website to see the program http://www.parrsborofilmfestival.com/
For the second year, Main & Station collaborates with PFF to host a Nonesuch After Hours portion of the festivities on both Friday and Saturday evenings from the time the screenings at The Hall finish (around 11pm) until.
Last year we showed more films but this year we are mixing it up a little with some live music, dancing, and drawing. The Wazoo Blues Band will be here both nights and the floor will be cleared for dancing!
Also, October is The Big Draw, an international festival that is part of the Campaign for Drawing. All over the world during the month of October there are many events that encourage drawing activities. You can learn more about the Big Draw and the Campaign for Drawing at: http://www.thebigdraw.org/
