Film screenings on bill for Celebration Weekend

The Windsor International Film Festival will partner with the University of Windsor for an outdoor movie screening on Friday, September 20, during celebrations of the University’s 50th anniversary.

The screening, dubbed “007 Under the Stars,” will span 50 years of James Bond. On the bill for the double feature is 1963’s From Russia with Love at 8:30 p.m., followed at 10:45 p.m. by the 2012 blockbuster Skyfall.

The free public event is slated for the Dillon quad—bring your blankets and lawn chairs. Snacks and soft drinks will be available for purchase, or bring your own (alcohol is strictly prohibited.)

In the event of inclement weather, the festival will move inside to the Education Gym next to the CAW Student Centre.

The next day, the film festival will present “Choose your own Adventure,” screening a selection of films to be chosen by alumni and the campus community through social media.

This event will run during the afternoon and into the evening in the Education Gym, and organizer Vincent Georgie says plans are in the works to offer the titles of several international and blockbuster films for an audience vote in the weeks ahead.

“Stay tuned to UWindsor’s social media sites to vote for your favourites!” he advises.
