The South Hastings Film Council was formed in December 1950 by the merger of Hastings County Film Council and Foxboro & District Film Council. Each month the Film Council recieved one box of films from the National Film Board of Canada (NFB) and arranged showings throughout their district, which consisted of Sidney, Thurlow and Tyendinaga Townships. Films were shown to school groups during the day, with a public showing in the evenings. The Film Council advertised the showings, supplied equipment (projectors) and organized the events. Connie Churchill was the secretary and Jim Churchill was "the fixer" the one in charge of setting up everything. Wanda I. Sine was treasurer.
Collected by Joan Young, daughter of Jim and Connie Churchill who were involved with the South Hastings Film Council. Donated by Joan on July 22, 2014.
