Parents warn their children, caution labels abound, and common sense dictates that there are just certain things that one must never, ever do - especially at home. But turning this accepted wisdom on its head, Discovery presents Never Do This At Home, an explosive new Canadian series.” All films are presented free of charge and are open to all. Screenings will be held inside the Godfrey Dean Cultural Centre, starting at 7:30 p.m. The festival also wishes to extend a huge thank you to all who have attended our summer screening series.
