FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Be The Change Film Series – year 11!

Bringing youth into the picture in longstanding socially conscious film series- Movie Night, October 17th: Metamorphosis

As the socially and environmentally conscious Be The Change Film Series enters its second decade, it turns its attention to local youth. Young volunteers from the Collingwood Youth Centre will be playing an active role in running the series that takes place at the Simcoe Street Theatre (across from the Collingwood Library). There are also plans afoot for a youth-centric grand finale event around Earth Day in April, 2019. Why? Our youth are the future—they are the ones we need to empower to Be The Change in the world.

As in years past, the Be The Change Film Series, presented by Locations North – Royal LePage and also made possible thanks to the generous donations of our many sponsors, will feature two sittings per night. Come enjoy a film either at 5:00 or 7:30, every third Wednesday of the month, October 17th through April 17th (excluding December). There will be a marketplace of local vendors sponsoring the event, and food and drink from the Collingwood Food Coop just down the hall. Enjoy organic popcorn sold by the Collingwood Collegiate Institute’s GAIA (student environmental activists). Between films, enjoy music courtesy of Classical 1029 FM.

To buy tickets ($10 adults, $5 youth, $50 for 6 season tickets), visit The Rock Shop, 179 Hurontario Street, in Collingwood (cash only) or purchase online at www.BeTheChangeFilmSeries.com.

October 17th Movie Night: Metamorphosis

Billed as ‘a poem for the planet’, Nova Ami and Velcrow Ripper’s film Metamorphosis takes the pulse of our earth and bears witness to a moment of profound change: the loss of one world and the birth of another. Through a tidal flow of stunning images, Metamorphosis carves a path from the present to the future, and offers a bold new vision for humanity and the world.
