Reel Light Movie Night & Talkback Social
at Vancouver Convention Centre & The Old Spaghetti Factory
999 Canada Place
You are warmly invited to join the Reel Light community on Saturday, January 29th. We are viewing MISSISSIPPI REMIXED at the Missions Fest Vancouver Film Festival (Rooms 1 - 3, Level 2) at the Vancouver Convention Centre followed by a post-show talkback social with Producer / Director Myra Ottewell, Associate Producer / Camera Operator Trevor Meier and, Story Editor Erin Mussolum.
The screening is $3.00 (tickets can be purchased at the door) and is part of the Missions Fest Vancouver 2011 Film Festival (January 28 – 30) – you can see more information on the film festival here. There's also an article about film fest in the January issue of BC Christian News. There are four (FREE) film festival associated seminars taking place (two on Friday and two on Saturday) – please see the attached document for details on the seminars. Since it is not available online, the detailed list of those participating in the (FREE) Sunday afternoon short mission film showcase (which includes work by a number of Reel Light associated filmmakers) is also attached to this e-mail.
MISSISSIPPI REMIXED is a 57-minute documentary (see additional description below). Immediately following the screening, there will be a brief Q&A. The Reel Light community is then invited to travel to The Old Spaghetti Factory which is located at 53 Water Street (about an 8 block walk from the Convention Centre). There is an 8pm reservation under “Reel Light” – we’ll be in the back area known as “section 14”.
The Talkback Social is open to all Reel Light connected people to attend as an opportunity to do a bit of a Q&A with the MISSISSIPPI REMIXED reps as well as whichever other filmmakers / panelists from the film festival are at the dinner. It's very low key - everyone is responsible to pay for whatever they order and the restaurant will prepare separate bills.
You are welcome to come to both the movie and the talkback social time or just attend one or the other.

Vancouver based filmmaker and Christian Myra Ottewell travels back to her roots in Jackson, Mississippi to take a fresh look at race relations in America’s Deep South. The film exposes audiences to rarely seen archival footage, interviews with civil rights leaders, everyday citizens and high school students. It shows first-hand not only the struggles but also the successes Mississippi is having with integration today.
