    Kevin Courrier Whats On Spring 2012It is with deep sorrow that the MNjcc shares the news that beloved film critic and instructor Kevin Courrier passed away on Friday October 12th. Kevin shared his passion for film and music at the JCC for over a decade through the Toronto Jewish Film Society and Film Studies lectures. His endless energy and passion for discussion and storytelling overflowed and cascaded into our community. Kevin was a gentle soul with a razor sharp mind. He elevated our understanding and appreciation of the art form that he loved. He will be dearly missed.
