[cayugabirds-l] The Messenger Movie

2015-11-22 Thread Meena Madhav Haribal
Hi all,

Thanks for all the replies! I thought I should let you know the results. I got 
reply from about 30 people that they are interested in screening the movie in 
Ithaca, some via Doodle and some directly to me and preferred time period was 
April.  I am glad to know so many of you are interested in the movie.


But there is a slight twist, it seems Linda Orkin had started already some 
negotiation with the officers of the CBC and she thought I was jumping her guns 
and I had no clue about it. Only my goal was I wanted to see the movie and  as 
it was not being shown anywhere near Ithaca, I decided to check with the 
distributors and based on their communication I thought it would be nice to 
bring the movie here if there is enough interest.


So currently, I am not sure if the CBC wants to have it as a CBC  event or not.


But anyway, we should get this movie here in Ithaca during early spring.


Thank you for your interest, I will let you know in due course what is 
happening.


As for birding today, I spent most of my time in my house and spent 10 minutes 
out in the yard trying to photograph the NFC mic on my roof for an article, 
that is when I heard two Downies drumming on one of my dead trees and were 
playing a game of peek a boo. Actually, I think one was chasing away the other 
female from her territory as they have no time for fun games I think.


Cheers

Meena

[cayugabirds-l] The Messenger

2015-11-21 Thread Sandy Wold
Thank you for bringing this film to our attention, Meena!  It looks like an
amazing film, and I wonder if there is interest in turning the film into an
even bigger event... where we invite teachers to tie the content into
school curricula and and invite bird/nature conservation clubs all over the
world to host a showing for a week as part of a global event (Earth
Day/Week?).  Is there interest in having a club project committee form to
work on this?  I'd be willing to help work on this!

[cayugabirds-l] The Messenger : A movie about songbirds

2015-11-20 Thread Meena Madhav Haribal
Hi all,
Since it has been produced, I have been keen on seeing this film. So I want to 
get this film "The Messenger" about songbirds, which has features from Bill 
Evan's Migratory study project to Ithaca as it is not being shown here.  There 
are various ways one could get this film to be viewed by the group. We can hire 
a theater such as Cornell Cinema or Cinemapolis, this would involve no upfront 
payment or we can show it in a hall where there is digital projector available. 
 It is nice to see on a big screen with surround sound set up. The cost per 
person can vary from $4 to 7 per person depending on the size of the crowd we 
are getting. But before deciding where we would like to show, I would like to 
know from the community if you would be interested in such a screening. If so 
please respond to me to this Doodle query 
http://doodle.com/poll/e3v8na7zpi8tmmsq

This could be done under any auspices for example if Cayuga Bird Club is 
willing to host then it would be awesome.  First I am seeing how much of 
interest is there in bringing it to Ithaca, then I will look for a sponsorship 
if necessary.
