Help bring Kevin Smith to Canberra

For those of you who haven’t heard of [Kevin Smith](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kevin_Smith), he is an American screenwriter, film director, and the founder of [View Askew Productions](http://www.newsaskew.com/).

Here is a short filmography:

– Jersey Girl
– Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back
– Dogma
– Chasing Amy
– Mallrats
– Clerks

He’ll be coming to Australia soon to promote Clerks 2 but only to Sydney and Melbourne. It would be great if he could come to Canberra too. I think it would be an excellent opportunity for the Canberra film scene to have someone of Kevin’s calibre visit.
