St. John Film Society Free Movie Night to Present 'Africa Unite'

St. John Film Society presents "Free Movie Night" at 6:30 p.m., on Thursday, Feb. 5, at Miss Lucy's Restaurant in Coral Bay, St. John. (Phone: 693-5244) This month's feature film presentation is "Africa Unite," a documentary with concert in tribute to Bob Marley, directed by Stephanie Black. (89 minutes, 2008 release).
A short video will be presented by local artist Bill Stelzer prior to the documentary. Stelzer will present a short video compilation created for the Waveplace Project, a partnering effort with the One Laptop Per Child Foundation. The foundation brought children's laptops to students in Haiti, Nicaragua, Florida and St. John. The video features the children as they learned digital art, programming and storytelling skills over the course of this extraordinary adventure.
The St. John Film Society's mission is to inspire a positive appreciation for the history, culture and environment of the U.S. Virgin Islands by establishing a free monthly film series open to and for the benefit of the local community.
Each month, the society will invite a local V.I. filmmaker, video installation artist or visual artist to present his or her work prior to the feature film presentation. The goal is to develop public awareness of local talent by creating an environment in which filmmakers and artists can introduce and discuss their work and their artistic process with audiences of all ages.
It also invites filmmakers/artists to submit their work for consideration. E-mail suggestions to stjviff@gmail.com or submit preview DVDs to:
