Seniors are known for the countless hours they spend volunteering and supporting people and programs in our community. Support matters and for those community champions who give so much to others, Hospice North Hastings would like to help you take some time for yourself – at least once a month.
The Movie Night for Seniors Program is a small but important step to help remind those who give, to also receive support from time to time.
This is where Hospice North Hastings, the North of 7 Film Fest and New Horizons for Seniors would like to help.
Art and culture has a restorative effect so be our guest and enjoy the long list of exceptional films at the North of 7 Film Fest in Bancroft with your free Movie Night for Seniors film pass.
To get your pass drop us a line before August 8 and let us know how you help others in the community. Or, if you know of a senior in our community, nominate someone who deserves a break as a reward for helping others. We’ll pick 10 seniors to receive a free pass and share their stories on our website and through social media.
Please share your story or nominate a senior by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by posting to our Hospice North Hastings or North of 7 Film Fest Facebook pages. You can even drop a note in the mail. If you are nominating someone else please make sure we know how to get in touch with them!
Your free Movie Night for Seniors pass gives you access to our North of 7 Film Festival screenings at the Village Playhouse in Bancroft from September 2014 to June 2015.
We show films selected from the Toronto International Film Festival catalog in partnership with the TIFF Film Circuit program. These films are visually stunning. They capture thoughts, bold ideas and take you on incredible journeys; all from the comfort of our historic Bancroft Village Playhouse. The screenings are social events where friends gather and we even offer trivia with prizes for those who want to get competitive.
If you’d like to drop us a line through Canada Post, please send all your nominations and stories to Hospice North Hastings, Box 875, Bancroft, Ontario, K0L1C0.
All nominees need to be 55 years of age or older to meet the New Horizons for Seniors’ criteria.
