Wandering Reel Film Festival 

Musical Performances by:

Lights By Jeff Manson’s Misto Reef

Lagunitas Brewing Company and Sola Wine are sponsoring the event!

West Marin Youth Project are coming with a popcorn machine: Pop corn special: $2/pop from 6:30pm-8:30pm!!

Doors Open at 6:30 pm / Films start at 7pm 

Sliding scale $10-$20

The Wandering Reel is a traveling short film festival showcasing compassionate and artful cinema for communities without access to such films. We strive to engage that audience in a deeper conversation about the nature of cinema, the movie industry and the films themselves and how they relate to community, conscious living and making the world a better, more unified place.

The evening will feature a customized selection of films from each of the five regular Wandering Reel programs, chosen by our curator in spontaneous fashion as the evening unfolds to suit the mood and taste of the crowd, and perhaps challenge their sensibilities as well. Read more about the films at www.wanderingreel.org.

After the screening will feature special musical guest Danny Vitali, performing his debut album, Invernesia.

There is also a Facebook event page https://www.facebook.com/events/1495591367401897/

 

 

Dia de los Muertos

dia de losSunday November 1st Noon-10pm and Monday November 2nd Noon-10pm, FREE ENTRY

Mirta Guzman will have our BIG alter back!

Serving Pozole, Squash Soup and Hot Chocolate!

You are invited to the celebration of a traditional Latin American holiday that combines pre-Colombian festivals and indigenous traditions with European rituals for honoring the dead. It is celebrated every year at this same time as Halloween and the Christian holy days of All Saints Day and All Souls Day.

In homes, families arrange “ofrendas” or altars. Tables are covered with fruit, flowers, vegetables, bread, candy, candles, incense, photos of the deceased, papel picado (paper cut-outs) represent the sky. Marigold petals are sprinkled to create a path for the spirits to follow on their return.

Please feel free to bring photos of those who have passed over, along with mementos and flowers.

The hall will be open for the honoring of “Dia de los Angelitos” (remembering children who have died) on Sunday, Nov 1 from Noon-10pm. The BCC will have Pozole and Mexican chocolate available for purchase in the kitchen.

On Monday Nov. 2, Dia de los Muertos”, the BCC  will be open from noon to 10pm. This day is not a sad time, but one rather of remembering and rejoicing. Musicians are welcome. 

Please join us for any or all of the celebration you can.   To volunteer: watch over the altar or bake some sweets for the BCC to sell which will help cover the cost of the altar, please call 868-2128 or email lia@bocenter.org.
