Suggest you contact Rob Olason (he is TW member) as he is kind of heading up the film group. My understanding is that they want to start featuring TW sponsored films on a regular basis (once a month at most)- just need another volunteer or two to make it happen. I've been involved so I know it is not much of a commitment- mostly helping decide which films to feature and then showing up the night of the screening to help out.
