THE BINGO ROBBERS
In celebrating our 25th anniversary, this retrospective throw-back opened our Festival in 2000!
Co-Directors and co-writers Lois Brown and Barry Newhook with producer Dana Warren created this off-beat romantic comedy about two petty criminal want-a-bes, winning Best Original Screenplay, Best Music Composition and Best Actor at The Atlantic Film Festival. Set in downtown St. John’s, he lives in his car, she has a plan, and we are reminded that there is a little criminal in all of us.
Stick around after the film for a Q&A and a lot of laughs with Lois Brown.
Saturday Night Screening: Wet Bum[wpdevart_youtube]o8Rq78ZJfMo[/wpdevart_youtube]
Sam is a self-conscious and stubborn 14-year-old girl, finding it difficult to fit in. She finds strength in the underwater world her lifeguard course provides. But insecurity takes over when her unwillingness to change out of her bathing suit in front of the more developed girls becomes a point of ridicule. It’s this fear that leaves her with a wet bum. Her solace from the bullying is Lucas, her handsome and empathetic lifeguard instructor, who reaches out to help. After a skinny dipping prank goes awry, mom punishes Sam by making her work cleaning the family-run retirement home. As the days pass, Sam develops unexpected friendships with two of the retirement home’s residents, who teach her about growing up…and growing old.
Post screening Q&A with writer/director Lindsay MacKay.

The Mask You Live In follows boys and young men as they struggle to stay true to themselves while negotiating America’s narrow definition of masculinity. Compared to girls, research shows that boys in the U.S. are more likely to be diagnosed with a behavior disorder, prescribed stimulant medications, fail out of school, binge drink, commit a violent crime, and/or take their own lives. Jennifer Siebel Newsom and The Representation Project asks: As a society, how are we failing our boys and how can we can raise a healthier generation of boys and young men?
Post–screening Q&A panel with co-writer/producer and editor Jessica Congdon.
Presented with the Men’s Outreach Committee of the NL Sexual Assault Crisis and Prevention Centre.
