    Film Committee Update January 20, 2007

    note: until further notice, all events, dates, and locations mentioned are tentative

    Sent a proposal to Erin Lucia at the Movie Tavern asking for space on Thursday, April 19, for a double feature of “An Inconvenient Truth” and “Who Killed the Electric Car”. The screening will begin at 7:00pm. I am asking for two theaters. To advertise her appearance, we will show a very short clip from one of the Julia Butterfly Hill films prior to the screenings.

    Here is a list of other films we will screen at the various locations (DPL, TWU, UNT) throughout the month of April. The schedule is still TBD.

    Butterfly (80 min.)
    Full Circle: A Life Story of Eustace Conway
    Future of Food (88 min.)
    Luna: The Stafford Giant Treesit (20 min.)
    Power Trip (85 min. )
    The Take (87 min.)
    Texas Gold (21 min.)
    Tree-Sit: The Art of Resistance (120 min.)

    Our committee discussed offering some children’s films, but I will need input from DPL staff on this:

    Fern Gully
    The Lorax
