For Film Brockville, it’s a homecoming of sorts.
The non-profit organization is making a mid-season move from Brockville’s Galaxy Cinemas back to the Brockville Arts Centre, where it got its start.
“Money’s always a problem and the arts centre gave us a good offer,” said Film Brockville facilitator Dale Chisamore.
“The audience keeps asking us to move there,” he added.
Film Brockville is a grassroots community group that screens independent, foreign, documentary and Canadian films during the fall and winter.
It is in its 24th season, which started off as the 14th year at Galaxy, before which Film Brockville was at the Brockville Arts Centre for a decade.
Moving back to the arts centre allows for a reduction in costs that is small, but “at this point, anything is good,” said Chisamore, noting times are hard for small art film associations.
“It has to happen here or we would, I would think, fold,” he added.
