Didsbury Village Film Club is run by a group of people drawn from across St James and Emmanuel Church.
Screenings take place around 4 times a year and are usually based on films that address major social and environmental issues. There is always an opportunity to discuss the films and everyone is welcome.
The club meet in the Parish Centre behind Emmanuel church. The event usually starts at 7.30pm, with an admission charge of £3.50.
Remaining films this year are:
19 Jan - The Power of Community 6 Apr - The End of the Line 6 Jul - The Vanishing of the Bees
On Wednesday 19th January at 7.30 pm the Didsbury Village Film Club will be screening 'The Power of Community' in the St James and Emmanuel Parish Centre.
"The Power of Community documents the creative response of local Cuban communities to the economic turmoil caused by the collapse of cheap oil and food from the former Soviet Union in 1990. Imports of oil were cut by more than half and of food by 80% - people were desperate. This fascinating and empowering film shows how communities pulled together, created solutions and ultimately thrived in spite of their decreased dependence on imported energy."
