Fifth Friday Film Festival

So, in case you were wondering what Sofa Cinema has been up to, the Sofa Cinema has decided to focus its efforts on what it is calling the "Fifth Friday Film Festivals"

These Single Day festivals will feature all of the same unique content that you're used to from Sofa Cinema, but in a quarterly festival-type setup.  The first festival will roll out in January 2010.  We'll keep you posted. 

Also, we are looking to hear from any local filmmakers who have short films that they may want considered for inclusion in these festivals.  Have them email us.

Fall Series

Fall Series Thank You

A warm thanks to all who supported us this fall. Our presentation of Babette's Feast was a huge hit just before Thanksgiving.  And thanks also to Pastor David Braneky and Dexter Lancot for hosting our stimulating post-movie discussion.

Our Man Flint was lots of fun, and we loved the costumes folks wore to This is Spinal Tap!

A big thank you to Wee Willie Webber for doing a great job of hosting our Japanimation Retrospective. We all enjoyed watching Tobor, Ultraman, Spiderman and Speed Racer. We were also glad to see Art Baxter (host of last season's animation retrospective) in attendance.  Here he is pictured with Wee Willie.

Thank You

Thank you to all who came out and enjoyed the movies with us this summer.  We had a great time showing Tibet: Cry of the Snow Lion with guest host Tsering Wangdi, The Retro Animation Showcase with guest host Art Baxter, Truly Madly Deeply, and Cinema Paradiso.

We are taking a couple of months off to plan our Fall series which will begin September 27th and run every other Saturday through December 6th.

We are also looking for folks interested in joining us and planning the fall series.  Please send us an email if you are interested, at

Also, come say "Hello" to us each Saturday at the Lansdowne Farmer's Market.  We'll be soliciting input for upcoming movies, and selling our delicious popcorn.
