STAMFORD, CT - First County Bank and the Friends of New Canaan Library are once again sponsoring the Friends Film Discussion Series. The discussion groups are fun and lively events that are free and open to the public. During each meeting, two films will be discussed. Multiple copies of the films are available at the library for viewing prior to discussion night. The spring sessions which run from March through June will also feature free pizza, wine and beer, as well as other refreshments. The next meeting is scheduled for Thursday, April 19, at 7:30 p.m. when “The Fall” and “The Station Agent” will be discussed.

The 2012 spring series, which had its first meeting on March 15, runs through Thursday, June 21, and is led by Jeff Zaino, systems librarian, and Friend’s committee member George McEvoy. The discussions will cover eight independent films and are held in the Plaut Room of the library. Although movies are not shown on discussion nights, multiple copies of each film are available at the library to view before each meeting. Registration is required and can be done on the library’s Web site: or by calling 203-594-5040.

“We are very pleased to once again have First County Bank sponsor this year’s Friends Film Discussion Series. It marks the third year in a row First County Bank has participated in this lively program. And we look forward to its continued support in the future,” George McEvoy, program chair, said.

“The Friends Film Discussion Group helps enrich the town’s intellectual and cultural life. And First County Bank is always looking for ways to help our neighbors enjoy free and convenient access to information that encourages the exchange of ideas,” said Rey Giallongo, chairman and CEO First County Bank. “If this donation helps the library remain a valuable resource to New Canaan and its surrounding communities, then the bank is happy to have helped.”

The remaining dates for the discussion group are May 17, when “Orlando” and “Drugstore Cowboy” will be discussed; and June 21, when “Maria Full of Grace” and “Brazil” will be discussed.
