Grownups Read Things They Wrote As Kids Coming To Kingston Film Fest
Thursday marks the start of the Kingston Canadian Film Festival.
And there's an unusual event coming - and it's just as it sounds.
Organizer Dan Misener says, it's an open-mic style night.
"If you look back at song lyrics, or diary entries, or poetry, or short stories you wrote when you were a kid and you're a little bit embarrassed, that is a natural reaction. And I think that's a good reaction," he says. "Recongizing that it's bad means you have progressed."
It's a chance for everyone involved to reflect.
"People share things about the funny parts of growing up, but also, some of the more difficult parts of growing up too," says Misner. "So it's a bit of an emotional roller coaster. You kind of laugh, you kind of cry, and you connect with who you used to be."
If you want to participate, you have to sign up ahead of time.
It's all happening Saturday, and a full list of events going on at the Kingston Canadian Film Festival can be found on the events page.
