To explore the creative challenges of translating a book or short story to screen, Cinematheque, McNally Robinson, and the Manitoba Writers’ Guild present a series of successful book to film adaptations on Wednesday evenings, once a month. 
Films will include Paul Newman’s Rachel, Rachel, Stephen Frears’ High Fidelity and David Cronenberg’s Crash as well a panel discussion on the subject with writer and Professor George Toles and author David Bergen.

Read the book in advance and then join Winnipeg Free Press columnist Alison Gillmor for a discussion in the Burns Classroom at the Manitoba Writer’s Guild after each screening (space is limited to 30 people).
To register for the discussion and screenings please call 204-925-3456 ext 106.
