Welcome to Kingstonist’s weekly challenge, dare, resolution or whatever you prefer to call it. Each week we establish a new and ambitious community goal, encouraging our readers, followers, friends and families to step out of their comfort zones and do something great, and hopefully a little out of the ordinary. Consider this your official and personal invitation to join us in completing a small but meaningful achievement. By taking part in this community-wide initiative, we hope to make Kingston a slightly better place to live, work and play. And of course, we also hope that you will feel proud of your contribution and achievement.
This week’s challenge encourages you to:
Support the Kingston Canadian Film Festival! Launched in 2001 by a Queen’s film student, KCFF has grown over the past thirteen years as a celebration of Canadian and French language films, as well as locally produced shorts. With twenty-one full length films and nineteen shorts being featured this year, KCFF provides a truly unique opportunity for local cinefiles and the general public to get their fix. Ticket prices are reasonable and many events are free, so support Canadian films, local filmmakers and local theatres this weekend. Find a full schedule of events here.
Sign up and commit to completing this week’s challenge by commenting below with an “I’m in“, “challenge accepted“, “en garde” or something along those lines. Further, help us spread the word via Twitter and Facebook by sharing the link and encouraging the participation of your friends and family. By joining together in our weekly challenge, we hope to accomplish big and positive things for our community.
