“Reel Comfort: Community Health & Engagement Through Film”
Tuesday, March 21st @ 2:00 PM - 4:00 PMFree
H’art Centre will host Elysse Leonard, the Coordinator of the Reel Comfort programme at the Toronto International Film Festival, for a talk and film screening called Reel Comfort: Community Health & Engagement Through Film.
“If you are interested in film, film-making, mental health, community arts, volunteerism, or simply, improving your community through the arts, this should not be missed,” said Tracy Ryan, Marketing Manager at H’art Centre.
Leonard will present an interactive session that will provide a glimpse of TIFF’s Reel Comfort, a community outreach initiative that connects mental health clients and service providers to film via facilitated screenings and film-craft workshops. The session will include a screening of short films shown in and created through the programme as well as a discussion of best practices for replicating this work in our own community.
This workshop is free thanks to the generous support of the Kingston Arts Council & City of Kingston Arts Fund.
