June 17th 6:30pm and 8:00pm Screenings
Location: SFU Cinema at SFU Woodwards 149 W Hastings st.
This evening will feature more international films, plus, 5 new film premiers from this years commissioned artists! These artists have been working hard within the past 6 months in their creations. All films have been created by Canadian artists, but have been filmed in various locations across the globe, from right here in Vancouver, all the way to the Netherlands! These artists were carefully selected by our jury through an application process, and each of their proposals showed promise, dedication, talent and innovation towards the making of a new movement centred film. We are excited to bring these films to the big screen, and to share these works with you!
We hope you will join us after this screening for a talk back with the artists facilitated by one of this years jurors Nancy Lee. Join us to learn about their process' and their experience in making these new creations!
We hope you can also join us for some drinks and a dance at the Gold Saucer where you can chat with the artists and dance with some live Jazz music by Rain City Blue! More info here.
All four screenings are accessible with a weekend pass! Only $15 for youth (ages 25 and under) and $25 for Adults (ages 26 and over)
