CINSSU NEEDS YOUR HELP! The Free Friday Film series is now in its tenth year, but -- because of the funding agreement that was initially made with SAC -- our budget for the series has always been a flat $7,000. Our costs, however, have been climbing steadily: 20% in the past 3 years, in fact, and this year we expect that the cost for the series will reach $10,000. So this year we're asking students to approve a 50 cent refundable levy, to secure the future of the FFF series. The levy will be used towards: * Fully covering the cost of the existing FFF series * Contribution to the maintenance of the 35mm projection and sound equipment in Innis Town Hall * Expanding publicity for the series * Allowing the screening of rare (and more expensive) films, which we currently can't afford * Expansion of the series: frosh week, exam periods, additional 9PM screenings, etc. The levy has to be approved by a SAC referendum the week of APRIL 7-11th 2003 on ROSI. IF YOU ARE A FULL-TIME UNDERGRADUATE, AND CARE ABOUT THE FUTURE OF FREE FRIDAY FILMS, PLEASE VOTE FOR THE LEVY ON ROSI: http://www.rosi.utoronto.ca/ APRIL 7-11th The FFF series is possibly the only series of its kind in Canada. With admission fees inching skywards at both first- and second-run cinemas, its value to students will only become more pronounced. Entertainment options are on the decline: a handful of smaller downtown cinemas have closed, and several more are on the way out (including the Uptown and the Eglin ton). The FFF series offers students free screenings of a diverse selection of films unlike any other venue in the city. Please support CINSSU and FFF!Title: Message
