15th Anniversary screening of Whale Rider

The Whale Rider will return one night only for a special 15th anniversary screening on August 22 as part of the Oxford Park Commission Movies in the Park. Nathan Robbins will perform live at 7 pm before the start of the film. It is free and family friendly. Join us! 

Rain Location is Pavilion. 

In a small New Zealand coastal village, Maori claim descent from Paikea, the Whale Rider. In every generation for over 1,000 years, a male heir born to the Chief succeeds to the title. The time is now. The Chief's eldest son, Porourangi, fathers twins - a boy and a girl. But the boy and his mother die in childbirth. The surviving girl is named Pai. Grief-stricken, her father leaves her to be raised by her grandparents. Koro, (the Chief) refuses to acknowledge Pai as the inheritor of the tradition and claims she is of no use to him. But her grandmother, Flowers, sees more than a broken line, she sees a child in desperate need of love. And Koro learns to love the child. When Pai's father, Porourangi, now a feted international artist, returns home after twelve years, Koro hopes everything is resolved and Porourangi will accept destiny and become his successor. But Porourangi has no intention of becoming Chief. He has moved away from his people both physically and emotionally. After a bitter argument with Koro he leaves, suggesting to Pai that she come with him. She starts the journey but quickly returns, claiming her grandfather needs her. Koro is blinded by prejudice and even Flowers cannot convince him that Pai is the natural heir. The old Chief is convinced that the tribe's misfortunes began at Pai's birth and calls for his people to bring their 12 year old boys to him for training. He is certain that through a gruelling process of teaching the ancient chants, tribal lore and warrior techniques, the future leader of their tribe will be revealed to him. Meanwhile, deep within the ocean, a massive herd of whales is responding, drawn towards Pai and their twin destinies. When the whales become stranded on the beach, Koro is sure this signals an apocalyptic end to his tribe. Until one person prepares to make the ultimate sacrifice to save the people. The Whale Rider.

Pop Up Oxford Movie Night

Pop Up Oxford Scheduled for January 22-28, 2017

OXFORD, MISSISSIPPI—NOVEMBER 2016—Pop Up Oxford will kick off Sunday, January 22, and continue through Saturday, January 28, with events and programs celebrating Oxford’s rich cultural scene. The idea stemmed from discussion within the Visit Oxford office about how to generate more visitation to Oxford during an otherwise slow time of year. Pop Up Oxford was born through the idea of a Chautauqua \ an adult education movement that began at the beginning of the 20th century and brought together culture and entertainment in various formats including lectures, events and programs. Pop Up Oxford will encompass the idea of the Chautaqua movement by hosting various events, speakers, exhibits and musical components—all of which Oxford has become known for in celebrating its literary, musical and cultural heritage—and all within a week’s time. Visit Oxford has collaborated with various organizations, attractions and events to create a week-long schedule of activities for visitors and locals.

“Visit Oxford is excited to collaborate with so many different organizations and events to bring people to Oxford during an otherwise slow time of year. Pop Up Oxford highlights so many different things that Oxford has become known for culturally and offers something for everyone,” said Director of Visit Oxford, Mary Allyn Hedges.

The week-long cultural celebration will begin Sunday, January 22, with the Hotel Hop from 3:30 -7:30 p.m. Hotels around the Square will host a progressive food and drink tasting. The Hotel Hop will begin at the Visit Oxford office (1013 East Jackson Ave.) and will be hosted by the Chancellor’s House, which will offer fine wine and cheese pairings, followed by a stop at the Inn at Ole Miss, which will serve a hot soup and adult beverage combo to warm you up. The Green Roof Lounge at the Courtyard Marriott will host the next stop with a tapas menu and cocktail tasting. Finally, The Coop at the Graduate Hotel will round out the evening with a mixology demonstration and desserts. Participating hotels will be offering shuttle service and the Double Decker Bus will also be providing transportation to each stop. To purchase tickets for this event visit, www.PopUpOxfordMS.com.

“Pop Up Oxford is going to be a great event reminding everyone of all the amazing things Oxford has to offer. With the Hotel Hop to kick off the week, we look forward to showing tourists and residents in the area what incredible hotels we have. Every hotel has something unique to feature and we look forwarding to sharing that,” said Nadia Thornton, assistant general manager for the Inn at Ole Miss.

On Monday, January 23, the University Museum, in partnership with the Fiber Arts Festival, will host a filming of “A Century of Quilts: America in Cloth” at 7 p.m. which documents several of the 100 best quilts of the 20th century.

Pop Up Oxford will continue with a Pre-Art Crawl discussion with artist, Charlie Buckley at Southside Gallery at 4:30 p.m. prior to the free monthly Oxford Art Crawl on Tuesday, January 24. The Oxford Art Crawl will take place from 5-6:30 p.m. (note the special time), ending at the Ford Center for a reception prior to the performance of In the Mood: A 1940’s Musical Revue at 7:30 p.m.  Mini Bits at The Edison will also be hosting an opening reception for new media artist, Mark Ramos, on Tuesday from 5-7p.m.

On Wednesday, January 25, there will be a screening of Sorry We’re Open” sponsored by the Oxford Film Festival and “Eat or We Both Starve” and “Smoke and Ears” both by Joe York, followed by a discussion about food and film in Oxford and how it has changed with Ron Shapiro, Joe York, Alan Arrivee, and John T Edge at the Oxford Conference Center from 5:30-7 p.m.

The week culminates with the Fiber Arts Festival kicking off on Thursday, January 26, through Saturday, January 28. In addition to Fiber Arts Festival starting on Thursday, Thacker Mountain Radio will kick off their spring season at Off Square Books at 6 p.m. with author Tim Gautreaux and Diane Williams with the Mississippi Arts Commission. On Friday, the Fiber Arts Festival will host a breakfast and lecture with Diane Williams at the Powerhouse. Also on Friday, January 27, there will be a special shopping and dining event on the Square called Shop Up Oxford. Details for this event are underway.

Said Andi Bedsworth, Oxford Fiber Arts Fest coordinator, “We are so pleased that our seventh annual Oxford Fiber Arts Festival is being offered as part of Pop Up Oxford. With 16 vendors from eight states, 28 classes, children's activities, lectures and receptions offered to celebrate traditional and modern fiber arts, there is sure to be something appealing to all ages.”

Pop Up Oxford rounds out the week on Saturday, January 28, with TEDx University of Mississippi at the Ford Center from 1-4 p.m. The Ole Miss Men’s Basketball team hosts Baylor University at the Pavilion at Ole Miss at 5 p.m.

SarahFest screening of EndoWhat?

Join us at Shelter on Van Buren on September 28 at 7 pm for a special screening with the filmmakers. 

IT'S TIME FOR A NEW NORMAL. 

A normal where women with endometriosis know the facts and can make empowered choices. A normal that doesn’t involve multiple doctors, surgeries, misdiagnoses and years of pain.

The only film of its kind, Endo What presents solid, accurate information straight from the experts. They answer the questions you have, but aren’t able to ask. 

They answer the questions you never even knew to ask.

JUST ONE CAVEAT. (Spoiler alert)

There’s no quick fix. No easy answer. But, it is possible. You can live a full, vibrant life with endometriosis. You may have endo, but endo does not have you. 

It’s time to make a real & lasting change in the narrative of this disease. It’s time to stop the vicious cycle of misinformation. The new normal starts now. It starts here with you. 

Take this film & take control of your life.
