If you follow the news and like living in a democracy, The Journalism Film Festival is a chance to get together with friends, classmates or co-workers and celebrate the vital contribution journalism makes in our lives….or it’s just a good time to get out of the house and watch a movie on a big screen.
We are proud to present “Network” – Introduced by Mike Farwell
When veteran anchorman Howard Beale is forced to retire his 25-year post because of his age, he announces to viewers that he will kill himself during his farewell broadcast. Network executives rethink their decision when his fanatical tirade results in a spike in ratings.
This festival is presented by ink-stainedwretches.org and partners Grand River Film Festival; World Press Freedom Canada; CBC-KW; CTV Kitchener; Mike Farwell and CityNews; and the Waterloo Region Record. For more info, see journalismfilmfest.com
