The Revue Cinema is celebrating the 200th anniversary of Ada’s birth on Sunday, Dec. 6, from 3:30 p.m. with the screening of a documentary about her, To Dream Tomorrow produced by Flare Productions.
These screenings are fundraisers for Back Lane Studios, a local not-for-profit that’s developing a program, called CityShorts, for students to make short documentary films in their neighbourhoods for screening at The Revue. Read an article, written by The Bloor West Villager’s Lisa Rainford, about the just completed CityShorts program at Bishop Marrocco/Thomas Merton Secondary School. Click here.
An expert panel will answer any questions: Imogen Coe, professor and dean at Ryerson’s Faculty of Science; Alex Ferworn, professor and associate chair of Ryerson’s Department of Computer Science; and Allan Olley, who earned his PhD at the U of T’s Institute for the History and Philosophy of Science and Technology.
