Join Sheba Soul Ensemble to celebrate, share and discuss great film from around the world.
The first day of this three day film festival event will focus on the work of Canadian and North American filmmakers.
Each session will include shorts, a feature, discussion, and a creative workshop (Creative Writing, craft, dance) in response to the films.
Get into festival mood with this delicious Caribbean cocktail – to be consumed wisely and in moderation. White rum (from the Coop, not Tesco’s) works better than dark.
