In Victoria's arts weekly Monday Magazine's 5th annual M Awards this week, Movie Monday took "Favourite Screening Series"
After almost 14 years, this weekly screening series is still going strong. Movie Monday won this category in our inaugural M Awards in 2002, so it seemed pretty fitting to see it appear again on our fifth anniversary. Bruce Saunders' movie screenings at the Eric Martin Pavilion not only provide a great mix of Hollywood and indie cinema, but also help to reverse the stigma associated with mental illness, whether itís by showing films on the topic (Benny and Joon, Georgi and the Butterflies, Dirty Filthy Love) or just having people watch a movie with someone suffering from a mental illness.
This favourite local screening series lives up to its motto of "A whole lot more than just a free movie."
Runners-up: Open Cinema, The Dark Corridor
