BRISTOL — Coming up in October is the premier of "Til Death", a film written and directed by Sam Kench, the founder of the Newfound Film Club, which meets at the library every Thursday afternoon.
This movie had been filmed over the last two summers and will make its debut at The Purple Pit 28 Central Square, Bristol on October 17. Tickets are $5 and may be bought in advance at the library. Call 744-7800 for more information.
Kench is also showing his artwork at the library during the second half of October. Sam was a painter before he became a filmmaker. When he watched a movie that he really loved he wanted to commemorate the experience by creating a painting. Somewhere in the process of painting he realized he wanted to become a filmmaker.
There will be an opening on October 22 at the library to thank Sam for all his hard work and the movie will also be shown.

CANTERBURY — At the ninth annual Old Ways Days, October 18-19 at Old Ways Traditions, 418 Shaker Rd., Canterbury there'll be even more woodworking than there was at Wood Days (held for the last and 23rd time this Spring).
There will be sawmilling and canoe building, tool making, basket making, wood turning, and spoon making, as always and, of course, Tools for Kids, blacksmithing, trail walks and more music; blues, bluegrass, Americana, fiddling.
Old Ways Traditions exists to connect people with traditional ways of doing things, still viable today. Old Ways Days features hands on demonstrations and participants can try the skills and find out where to learn to master them.
Some of the highlight include saw miller Ben Jones, who grew up working with his dad in the woods of Loudon, home base for his sawmill; canoe builder Ben Bean who will bring a 1934 Old Town he's restoring, master wood turner Marcel Durette and world class basketmaker Sharon Dugan.
Saturday noon to 2 Newfound Grass performs. Banjo player Dave Shaw keeps them from getting too "newgrass."
From 2 to 3 Arthur James will play acoustic blues. He identifies all the songwriters he covers. 3 to 4 open mic.
Sunday from noon to 2 world class fiddlers Ryan and Brennish Thomson, who performed in China earlier this year, performs followed by the Backtrack Band.
