December 04, 2021 01:15 AM December 09, 2021 02:50 AMJULIA brings to life the legendary cookbook author and television superstar who changed the way Americans think about food, television, and even about women. Using never-before-seen archival footage, personal photos, first-person narratives, and cutting-edge, mouth-watering food cinematography, the film traces Julia Child’s 12 year struggle to create and publish the revolutionary Mastering the Art of French Cooking (1961) which has sold more than 2.5 million copies to date, and her rapid ascent to become the country’s most unlikely television star. It’s the empowering story of a woman who found her purpose – and her fame – at 50, and took America along on the whole delicious journey. Film shown on December 3rd (5:15 to 6:50 pm), 4th (7:45-9:20 pm), 6th (5:15 to 6:50 pm), and 8th (5:15 to 6:50 pm).
December 04, 2021 03:00 AM 05:00 AMAs we embark on another trip around the sun, we are all wishing for a better trip than the last one, but in those times of strain and stress, magical things did happen. We looked within and without, to brave new directions and new ideas. We approach things in a different manner, hoping for positive outcomes. Looking down the whirlwind eye of another year, there is the tangible feeling of starting fresh with a new beginning. Work will include a wide variety of 2D and 3D works, spanning narratives of place and time. @ Xchanges Gallery

Sign up for the penultimate session in our Incubators 2.0 series with Jason Karman’s bookend workshop covering the first and last stages of content creation: development and distribution.
You have a great story. How do you develop it? Relationship building remains the heart of excellent producing; one fosters trust and creates opportunity while advancing stories. In Canada, making a film ethically matters, and representation is a goal worth striving for. Social media has become the primary tool for finding information and connecting people. No longer does one need to have a great story, but the question now shifts to why are you the right person to tell this story? This workshop will help emerging writer-directors interested in being auteurs produce their stories and manage future relationships.
Topics to be covered include:
• Grant writing and project development
• Getting a crew together
• Festivals and other forms of distribution
