Pizza & Movie Night with Manitoba Nature Summit

Sorry – this event was cancelled due to a problem with the venue – we are hoping to reschedule – stay tuned!

Join us for a screening of two great films and some networking!

Tickets are available on Showpass

The first film is:
All The Time in the World: Disconnecting to Reconnect. A documentary by Suzanne Crocker.
In search of a new perspective, a family of five leave the comforts of home to live remotely in the Yukon wilderness during the long northern winter and amidst the surprises that the rawness of nature provide. The parents leave their jobs and take their three children, ages 10, 8 and 4, to spend nine months living in a small cabin with no road access, no electricity, no running water, and no internet, no TV, no phone and, most importantly, no clocks or watches.

Filmed over 9 months, off the grid, without external crew, and featuring the unique perspectives of children, All The Time In The World explores the theme of disconnecting from our hectic and technology laden lives in order to reconnect with each other, ourselves and our natural environment – parents connecting with children, children connecting with nature.

The second film is The Land by Erin Davis

The Land (2015) is a short documentary film about the nature of play, risk and hazard set in The Land, a Welsh “adventure” playground. At The Land children climb trees, light fires and use hammers and nails in a play-space rooted in the belief that kids are empowered when they learn to manage risks on their own. 

Ticket price ($15/person) includes 2 slices of pizza!
Popcorn and Bake Sale items available for an additional charge.
