- Collage + Letraset Party / Saturday 28 January 8PM
- This week at The Film House
- NAC’s Winter Hours
It’s that time of year again!
We’re gearing up for the biggest art buying frenzy and party of the year! We’re calling on the artist members of NAC to create remarkable works of art in support of your friendly neighbourhood artist-run centre.
But hey! Check it out.
While we’re still offering up sweet square foot works of art, we’re adding an even smaller option to this year’s wall. Sign up for a 6”x 8” canvas, to be sold for $100. Or stick with the 12”x12” canvas or Masonite board, to be sold for $200. Or do both!
We have lots of space, but only the best works will be accepted. Contributing artists choose to donate all or half the proceeds of their work to NAC.
NAC will supply some materials on request (canvas or Masonite) but photographic, mixed-media, and works on paper will also be considered. You must be a member in good standing to participate.
Let us know if you intend on making work by filling out the form (available HERE) and emailing it to firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday 17 February before midnight. Small Feats takes place at NAC on Saturday 8 April, so save the date!

Read the review by Stephen Remus here
The director leads viewers on a detailed, sometimes rambling history of a group that, when it formed in 1967, was decades ahead of its time.
– Ann Hornaday (Washington Post)
A brainy and funny look at the creation and still-evolving legacy of a rock ‘n’ roll band Jarmusch considers the greatest of all time, even if Rolling Stone and snobby critics won’t admit it.
– Peter Howell (Toronto Star)
Thu 26 Jan 7PM / Fri 27 Jan 9:30PM / Sat 28 Jan 7PM / Sun 29 Jan 4PM
Perhaps the most beautiful thing about Moonlight is its open-endedness, its resistance to easy summary or categorization.
– A.O. Scott (NYT)
Barry Jenkins’s new film somehow manages to feel grand and intricate in the same moment, weaving random memories and crucial life experiences into a gripping tapestry.
– David Sims (The Atlantic)
Hello, My Name is Doris
Thu 26 Jan 9:30PM / Fri 27 Jan 7PM / Sat 28 Jan 4PM
Hello, My Name Is Doris uses this funny, outwardly ridiculous character to tell a simple story about a love that rarely speaks its name: that of an older woman for a much younger man.
– Manohla Dargis (NYT)
Sally Field keeps the movie on an even keel, for the most part, with an adroit and disciplined lead performance that generates both laughter and sympathy.
– Joe Leydon (Variety)
Sat 28 Jan 1PM
Unforgettable when it first appeared 30 years ago, Kes remains something of a landmark.
– Neil Jeffries (Empire)
Ken Loach’s film is grim and rambling, and without a clear victory, yet it’s one of the most powerful coming-of-age stories ever told, containing passages of great beauty.
– Jeffrey M. Anderson (Common Sense Media)
Life of Brian
Sun 29 Jan 7PM
If you’re a fan of the witty Monty Python gang, this a must-see comedy.
– Sandie Angulo (Common Sense Media)
A stylistically eclectic comic masterpiece.
– RF (Empire)
The Big Short
Mon 30 Jan 8PM
A dramatic retelling of the 2007-8 financial crisis reveals a riveting world of chaos, corruption and misfits.
– Mark Kermode (The Guardian)
The Big Short will affirm your deepest cynicism about Wall Street while simultaneously restoring your faith in Hollywood.
– A.O. Scott (NYT)
