On Wednesday, May 16, Huronia Museum Film Series presents our annual gala reception from 5:45 PM to 7:00 PM. The 4:30 film showing will go on as planned and the 7:30 showing will go on as planned. In between the two films the series will offer complimentary hors d’oeuvres and beer/wine in appreciation for our wonderful film series this season. In addition, we will have Ms. Janet Robinson of the Ontario Film Review Board talk about what the Film Review Board does. Janet’s talk will be at 7:00 PM sharp. This should be an insightful description of how our films are rated and what the board does in supporting films shown in Ontario.
