Krista Liebe and her husband, Tihol Tiholov, have been regular exhibitors at the Friday Farmers’ Market this summer selling Williams Lake Film Club memberships.

They will be there in Boitanio Park again today from 10 a.m. until the market closes at 2 p.m.

Memberships are $10 for the season which runs September to May and provide a discount on the regular adult ticket price. Adult admission is $9 regular, or $8 with a membership. Admission is $6 for seniors (65-plus) and for high school and university students with or without memberships.

All proceeds raised by the film club go toward supporting the Williams Lake Chapter of the Association for Students with Learning Disabilities (LDA), to provide one-on-one tutoring.

Films are shown Tuesday evenings at the Gibraltar Room and are the types of films not often found in mainstream theatres.

The club’s fall season begins Tuesday, Sept. 15, with the Quebec film Maina, an adventure/romance in Inuktitut and English that stars Roseanne Supernault, Graham Greene and Tantoo Cardinal.

Following a bloody conflict between her clan and that of the “men from the land of ice,” Maina, the daughter of Grand Chief Mishtenapuu, sets off on a mission to rescue a captured boy, little knowing her actions will result in the poignant meeting of two of America’s founding nations.

Tuesday, Sept. 29 the offering is Sex After Kids, a Canadian film in English which shows that life goes on after kids. Inspired to make the film after becoming a parent himself, director Jeremy La Londe has lined up an all-star Canadian cast to ask the question: is it possible to have children and a sex life and is it even worth it?

Tuesday, Oct. 13 the film Luther, (Germany/U.S.) in English and Latin stars Joseph Fiennes as Martin Luther, the brilliant man of God whose defiant actions in 16th century Germany changed the world.

Tuesday Oct. 27 the film is Force Majeure, a production of Sweden, France, Norway and Denmark in the Swedish/English/French and Norwegian languages.

This wickedly funny and precisely observed psychodrama tells the story of a model Swedish family, handsome businessman Tomas, his willowy wife Ebba and their two blond children, on a skiing, holiday in the French Alps.

Tuesday, Nov. 17 the Remembrance Day offering is The Cuckoo from Russia.

Tuesday, Dec. 1 the French film Bicycling with Moliere is on deck. Tuesday, Dec. 15 the film is still to be chosen.
