The Victoria and Chippawa libraries are pleased to offer feature-length movies for everyone to enjoy. If you're ever in doubt about whether or not to view a particular movie, check out the Ontario Film Review Board website. The Ontario Film Review Board is a classification tool that your library uses to determine the rating for each movie shown. This is a community board made up of various people and receives its mandate through the Film Classification Act, 2005 and operates as an arms-length agency reporting to the Minister of Consumer Services.
Subject to certain exceptions, if a film (e.g. movie, video, DVD, VCD or video game) is to be distributed or screened in Ontario, it must first be classified by this Board. Find out More.
Let's Talk Reconciliation Film Dialogue
Join us for a screening of the National Film Board production titled "Six Miles Deep".
On February 28, 2006, members of the Haudenosaunee confederacy blockaded a highway near Caledonia, Ontario to prevent a housing development on land that falls within their traditional territories. The ensuing confrontation made national headlines for months. Less well-known is the crucial role of the clan mothers of the community who set the rules for conduct. When the community's chiefs ask people to abandon the barricades, it is the clan mothers who overruled them, leading to a cultural reawakening in their traditionally matriarchal community.
Following the screening, join us for a Reconciliation Dialogue facilitated by karl Dockstader and Sean VanderKlis, hosts of the One Dish, One Mic podcast.
The discussion will be recorded as a special podcast edition.
For adults of all ages.
