Hullo y’all I’m really trying out this idea of guerilla blog posts tonight….so please forgive if the formatting goes wonky or something.
I’m sitting in the Chapleau rink.
There’s no one here but me and the maintenance fella. It’s snowing – deep and heavy.
Just attended the opening kick-off of the first ever True North Film Festival up here in Chapleau.
A dedicated band of film makers has pulled together a line up of six films and are screening them in two venues. I so so SO applaud them for all the work they’ve done to pull this together.
Woke this morning to snow….checked the Weather Channel online and my heart sank for the organizers. Big snow happening today and that’s bound to take a bite out of attendance at the festival.
Luckily, most of the movies are playing again tomorrow so folks have another chance if they are snowed out tonight.
Here’s the schedule:

We were a small but enthusiastic bunch at the premiere showing of La Fille Du Martin.
A sweet little romance that had us all dreaming of summer….and fishing…and smooching in a river.
Here’s hoping the crowds flock and the Festival is a success.
What’s a little snow, right?
We are Canadian.
