Rejects desperately seeking venue

Posted on Sun, Aug 31, 2008 at 1:57 PM

I just heard from "head reject" Steven James May that "after 7 consecutive years of holding the Salon des Refusés Atlantique each September at the historic Khyber Club space on Barrington Street, the Salon is currently without a venue for #8. Found out late last week from the City of Halifax that while we technically have the 'OK' to hold the event there Sept 10, the various costs and insurance coverage required to actually get in there and show rejected cinema for a mere 3 hours is beyond the Salon's financial grasp. It's a shame we can't be at the Khyber but the show must go on. If anyone in Halifax wants to host the event Sept 10 they should e-mail the Salon ASAP ( We've got a video projector thanks to our friends at CEV and a crop of fresh AFF rejects to share. Now we just need a venue."

Help some rejects out, will you?
