Screening on Saturday 17th June, 2017

Below is the program for the evening of Saturday June 17th, 2017.

Election Alert! We are still taking nominations for the JAFWA committee elections, for the elections on the night after the AGM, July 15th.
Are you a fully signed up member, who wants a chance of glory trying to serve the fickle needs of the JAFWA audience?

Tonight we will have the final survey to help determine which new regular series we start screening in July. So be certain to vote. We are going to throw in one last preview item to make things exciting, then have the survey during the Dinner Break.
Be warned, the Dinner Break will be short this Saturday, as we fit in the double-length last episode of retro series “Tenchi Muyo”. Actually, two other regular series are finishing tonight. We will have to add in a movie to express our sad farewell.
