Schedule for Jan '07

Hello everybody,

The first screening week of the year 2007 is done. We have seen enthusiasm for both films; a fairly auspicious beginning, as one might put it. A newborn year, and a month that continues with the pattern that began in December, which is to say, an assortment, as opposed to a theme. We plan to change course in February, the details of which we will make known later. Our apologies for this late schedule.

Screenings for the month of January:

2nd Jan., Tuesday, 6:15 p.m., Audi
BAMBI MEETS GODZILLA, dir: Marv Newland, and
THE BEATLES: A HARD DAY’S NIGHT, dir: Richard Lester

4th Jan., Thursday, 6:15 p.m., Audi
EDIPO RE (OEDIPUS REX), dir: Pier Paolo Pasolini

9th Jan., Tuesday, 6:15 p.m., Audi
OLIVER TWIST, dir: David Lean

11th Jan., Thursday, 6:15 p.m., Audi
ON THE WATERFRONT, dir: Elia Kazan

(Note: Tuesday the 16th has been allotted to a screening related to the Pongal festivities.)

18th Jan., Thursday, 6:15 p.m., Audi
FAME, dir: Alan Parker

23rd Jan., Tuesday, 6:15 p.m., Audi
THE PILLOW BOOK, dir: Peter Greenaway

25th Jan., Thursday, 6:15 p.m., Audi
8½, dir: Federico Fellini

We hope that this month the Auditorium shall have you all, or most of you, as regular patrons. As has been mentioned before, January’s schedule provides ‘tasters’ of work by various filmmakers, in the hope of sparking individual interest. (Hors d’Ĺ“uvres courtesy the Film Club; main course courtesy the KMC.) It is always useful to have feedback, especially in person, with students commenting on some aspect or the other. If you see any one of us three members, please feel free to tell us what you think.

With regards,
The Film Club.

We wanted to let you know about a new service for all filmmakers and film students that can be seen on Our community of filmmakers is growing rapidly and we would like to extend an invitation to your club members. Our service provides features that enable club members to be associated with and to gather all work in one affiliation mixed with ability to interact with other film clubs and filmmakers. If you have advice or suggestions on how we can promote our service to your user community or other features you would like to see we’d love to hear from you.

Launched in 2006, MyMovieNetwork is a unique online community that provides tools for filmmakers to showcase their work around the world by posting their films and portfolios as well as, learn from, network and collaborate with fellow movie makers. All members and visitors can watch, critique and rate submitted content based on its quality while at the same time enjoy the entertainment provided to them for free. MyMovieNetwork runs contests to find the best filmmakers, provides tools for scouting, blogging and linking to personal film archives. We provide affiliations for film schools and film clubs so all their members and work can congregate in one place. In addition each user can create a studio where all their films, cast and crew are associated with the studio. MyMovieNetwork community is growing so drop by and if you have a story to tell we’d love to hear from you and see your work.
