The Sale Film Society’s movie for the month of April is named after the month of November.

Described as ‘one of the most compelling films you’ll see this year’ by the Sydney Morning Herald, who rated it 4.5 stars out of 5, November is a French thriller that follows the French anti-terrorism services for five days during the hunt for suspects after the attacks in Paris on November 13, 2015.

Sale Film Society president Rob Ziffer said the film was “especially poignant, given the recent attack by ISIS in Moscow”.

“But the rapid arrest there seems a bit incongruent when you get an insight into how difficult the investigation process is – as November shows,” he said.

The screening is tomorrow (Wednesday, April 3), starting at 7.30pm at The Wedge. Members of the committee have entry included, and guests can pay a small fee of $10 to watch one film on the night.

At the conclusion of each screening, you will be asked to rate the film in the foyer. Attendees seemed to love last month’s film, 2023’s Oscar-nominated Past Lives, which they scored 4.7 stars out of 5!

Shirley’s Café & Bar will be open for drinks before all screenings. The boys will open for dinner if 15 or more bookings are made, so grab some pals and enjoy dinner before the show.

Phone 0413 271 227 to make a reservation.

Founded in 2017, the Sale Film Society aims to showcase independent, arthouse and classic movies to cinephiles in the Wellington Shire.
