- 6:30 PM   Doors open

- 7:00 PM   Screening of Café Derby by Lenny Van Wesemael

Nothing is as contagious as enthusiasm. George is overwhelmed by his idea to rent the Café Derby to make money during the Pope's visit to Belgium for a mass in a nearby field. His wife and five children abandon their initial reluctance, and decide to help. They are convinced there's a small fortune to be made. Told from the point of view of the youngest daughter, the film is a funny and moving chronicle of a family both falling apart and pulling together. Inspired by true events in the filmmaker’s life, the film is an ode to audacity.

followed by a Skype Q&A with filmmaker Lenny Van Wesemael
