Free movie passes! And yet another chance to see James Orbinski.

Patrick Reed has very kindly given us some movie passes (each good for two people) to hand out. What is the movie you ask? Well, it is an award winning documentary from White Pine Pictures and The National Film Board of Canada about Doctors without Borders which will be screening tomorrow at Fifth Avenue Cinemas, (Tuesday, October 21, 2008 at 7pm).

If that wasn’t cool enough, James will also be in attendance to do a Q&A after the screening. The official evite is below, but note that you will need a pass to get in. Passes will be left at the Information Desk at the UBC Bookstore. There should be a good 50 or so passes, so even if you get this late, don’t feel like there won’t be any left – you never know.

Anyway, official evite is below.
