ReFrame International Film Festival

Joan just returned – very excited and inspired – from Peterborough, Ontario, where our film Living on the Edge was screened at the 11th ReFrame Peterborough International Film Festival. Our film was graciously sponsored by Alan and Linda Slavin, Transition Town Peterborough (TTP), Trent University Environmental and Resource Studies/Science (ERS), Unitarian Fellowship of Peterborough, Peterborough-Kawartha Federal NDP, and Sustainable Trent. Our film attracted an amazing crowd of about 250 people for the 10 am screening on a cold, wet Saturday morning.  Very impressive!

I think that Joan is already thinking about returning next year to ReFrame!  Thanks, Krista English and your super staff and volunteers for all your support and encouragement!
