TAL-KW has entered into an agreement with
Cort Egan of Renison University College and John Tutt of the Princess Cinema
to offer you a Film and a post film discussion series.

TAL- KW has decided to expand to add another Program option to our existing lecture series
 TAL-KW has entered into an agreement with Cort Egan of Renison University College and John Tutt of the Princess Cinema to offer you a Film and a post film discussion series.  The series consist of six films to be screened at the Princess Twin on the second Wednesday morning of each month from November to April. These are the dates: November 13, December 11, January 8, February 12, March 11, April 8.

The program will begin at 9:00am with coffee and baked goods.  At 9:30 am, a new film, not as yet commercially released, will be screened.  Following the screening, there will be a moderated discussion with a speaker(s) who can help unpack the themes in the film, and provide additional context, or a more local lens.  

The new film will be a mystery until the morning of the screening but will have been chosen to allow scope for a good discussion of the issues. For the past four years Cort Egan our Renison contact has organized a similar film and discussion series at the Bookshelf in Guelph, which has now grown to two back-to-back sold out screenings each month. To provide an idea of the type of film to expect, examples  of previously screened films in Guelph are:

Denial – story of Holocaust survivor David Irving libel suit against Holocaust scholar – Deborah Lipstadt.
Panelists: Dr. David MacDonald and Dr. Pat Case MacDonald and Case are Political Science professors. Macdonald specializes in Holocaust and genocide studies; Case is a commissioner with the Ontario Human Rights Commission. Our panelists were able to speak intimately about the Lipstadt case, and discuss the themes raised in the film from a local perspective.

Mark Felt – The Man Who Brought Down the Whitehouse – story of deep throat and the Watergate scandal.
Panelist: Peter Mansbridge discussed how this news story changed news reporting for ever in the US and Canada.

I Daniel Blake – Ken Loach film depicts the bureaucratic challenges that befall a man on disability.
Panelist: Elaine Weir, Public Health Nurse, Bridges out of Poverty facilitator. Spoke to the very real barriers in southwestern Ontario that hinder people who live in poverty from getting out.

The films will be sold as a series of six for $150 and tickets can be obtained at the Princess Twin box office beginning on Oct 30.  Payment can be by debit or cheque.  Prior to Oct 30, an email to  will allow members reserve tickets.  Tickets are limited by the size of the Princess Twin and TAL members will have the first opportunity to buy a series tickets/pass. Sales for the general public will begin later.  Please direct all inquiries about this program to the Princess Twin (email:
