Greetings to all Spotlight Films members, sponsors, and friends: 


This coming Tuesday, November 19th (a week earlier than usual) Spotlight Films will be screening the highly acclaimed documentary 20 Feet from Stardom.   This engaging film explores the hopes, dreams and disappointments of the female backup singers to some of the biggest music acts in the business.  It promises to be a heart-wrenching story filled with great music. The top critics at Rotten Tomatoes give it 100 per cent!   It has received many awards and been the audience favourite at many festivals. 


As usual, we will not be presenting a December film.  Our next feature isJanuary 28th when we will be showing the critically acclaimed biographical drama Fruitvale Station.  It’s based on the true story of Oscar Grant, who was dragged off a transit train in Oakland in the early hours of New Year’s Day, 2009, and shot and killed by a transit police officer for essentially no worse a crime than being young, and male and black.
