Film Fan Fridays for Friday May 26, 2006!!!

Hello Film Fans and Fanatics!!

I'm still amongst oodles of boxes therefore we have a Dragnet newsletter this week: just the facts. OH but I do have to say, very excited for Souvenir of Canada coming out in regular release - I was really close to seeing it during the Film Fest last year I was completely drawn to the publicity photo which featured Ookpik. OH - and sooooo excited to see The Proposition as it was written by Nick Cave! And of course we can't forget the release of the 3rd X-Men film this week: X-Men: The Last Stand. Ok so that isn't very Dragnet-like, but hey - I can't help it if I'm excited!!

Festival Watch:
Inside Out Lesbian and Gay Film and Video Festival continues until May 28, 2006, Toronto

Have a great weekend!

Shannon
