I love watching movies. I’ll watch pretty much any type of movie, except for romantic comedies. My favourite genre, however, is definitely the documentary. And if, like me, you love documentaries, you will be very excited to know about a wonderful upcoming event in Sydney.
The 2009 Sydney International Film Festival features a variety of documentary films from Canada and around the world. The films address many issues, including First Nations, war, peace, and environmental issues, as well as themes of youth, redemption and the resilience of the human spirit. The festival will also have the Cape Breton premiere of You Can Do It! The Story of the Antigonish Movement – a very important and highly recommended local, and international-interest, film.
The festival runs on Friday, November 20th from 6-10pm and Saturday, November 21st from 10am-6pm at the Royal Bank Lecture Theatre at CBU.
All films are free – although donations are encouraged to help cover costs. The Film Festival is brought to you by the Cape Breton Regional Library, the Centre for International Studies at CBU, the Antigonish International Film Festival, and generous volunteers.
