BPACC is still operating, but the program of films screening is changing – it has already changed twice. As I let you know earlier this week, the two films we nominated for our April discussion have both been dropped from the program – mainly because the distributors want to hold them until they can be sure of a reasonable audience level. In other words they do not want to lose money. You can see the latest program at http://bpacc.com.au/benalla-cinema/#coming-soon. There are extra screenings of “Call of the Wild” and “Onward” is now screening from 26 March. Both of these are on the list I handed out at the March class.
I have been thinking about how we can still watch a film and share our thoughts without meeting face to face. My best idea so far is the following:
- Watch a film of your choice anywhere – BPACC, another cinema, DVD or TV (SBS World Movies, streaming service such as Netflix) – there are number of options
- Send your comments on the film you choose and send it to me by the scheduled class date – I will send you some generic questions you can consider to help you prepare the comments
- I will forward the comments to the rest of the class. OR I could share the email addresses and you can send to the rest of the class yourself.
So my question now is whether you like this approach for keeping the class going. Please respond and let me know, or if you have a different idea for keeping our involvement in Film going while we are having problems meeting as a group. It is essential that you let me know your thoughts or I will not be able to proceed.
