The Fewings 16mm Educational Film Collection – Selections from the Collection
April 29th, 2022
More than 120 16mm films are available for viewing, from a collection of over 2,000 films amassed by former school teacher, Dan Fewings and now being looked after by his son Josh Fewings. The films were acquired from the region’s school systems when they converted to digital in the 1990s. They span the gamut from NFB art films to adolescent puberty lessons and outdated documentaries revealing dramatic shifts in societal attitudes. There will be two sessions daily: 1) Selections From the Collection. Josh will screen a group of films selected around a different theme each day. Drop in any time during the session. 2) Audience Choice. Drop in, browse the list of films and choose one that sounds intriguing. Josh looks after the collection but has not had a chance to screen all the films, so he is hoping to discover some hidden gems with your help. Drop in any time during the session.
