October 2019 Screening
MENA’s fall screening takes place at Emily Carr’s Reliance Theatre on October 19-20. This will be the first chance for audiences to experience some of the premiere contemporary films from both the MENA region and the diaspora. Both fair and night at the theatre; a feast and foreshadow, we open these doors to break down walls and find common vision across geographic divides.
The Reliance Theatre atrium will serve as a gathering space, banquet hall and art exhibition with work from MENA-identifying artists and publishers, caterers and musicians – leading into our nightly selection of films. Doors are open to everyone to share the space, explore the differences encountered there, and within those differences to find a common ground.
