World-renowned filmmaker and artist, Atom Egoyan will be the featured guest at an art symposium in Regina from Nov. 2 – 5.

“He is internationally known for making feature films,” says Christine Ramsay, associate professor of film and media studies at the University of Regina. “It’s so nice to bring a Canadian national and also international artist to be with us and enjoy our little art scene and to bring their expertise. It’s such a thrill to have someone who is this in-demand.”

Egoyan was born in Egypt to Armenian parents and grew up in Victoria, B.C. He studied at the University of Toronto. He is known for his work in theatre, music, art and film. He has been nominated for two academy awards and many of his films – Exotica, Adoration and The Sweet Hereafter have won awards at the Cannes Film Festival.

It’s that time of year again; University of Regina film students are busy bustling around in preparation for their main feature: The 28th Living Skies Student Film Festival. However, before the popcorn pops and the lights gently dim, there is a laundry list of duties to complete in order for the first opening credits to roll.

When Eric Galbraith started roasting coffee beans five years ago in his backyard garage, he had no idea where his love for coffee would take him. Today, with his own handpicked, in-house roasted coffee beans, he has gone from selling his coffee at the Regina Farmer’s Market to opening his own coffee shop in the heart of Heritage Regina. He called it 33 ⅓ Coffee Roasters.
