Tom Shoebridge will be offering his cinema course through Learning Again in Almonte for the fourth time. He is delighted to once again be sharing some of his favourite, outstanding films to enjoy and explore. The course is designed to have the audience members see six films (which will not be announced in advance) and then share their insights and reactions to them. Participants will be watching Canadian and international features, as well as some American stalwarts. There will also be one remarkable feature-length documentary.
Tom Shoebridge founded the Canadian Screen Training Centre for Film in 1981, where 7000 students honed their craft over the years. Shoebridge’s main objective with his programming was to force the creative executives on a given project—the writers, directors, producers and actors—to realize that they were a collaborative group, not creative islands.
He also spent many years sharing his expertise in high school, college and university classrooms across Canada and internationally.
