Broadway East Art Walk Community Film Festival Saturday October 11th

10 Oct

CommunityFilmFestivalOct.11The folks at Broadway East Art Walk will be hosting their second annual Community Film Festival on Saturday, October 11th from 6:30 – 9:30 pm at 303 8th Avenue. You are invited to come celebrate the places and stories that make our neighbourhoods unique and see them unfold through the screening of local short films. You will experience a wide range of locally made films in a variety of genres, ranging from documentary to music videos and experimental films. The event is free but an RSVP is required which you can do via this link at Eventbrite. If you would like a run down of the all the films that will be showing, visit Broadway East Art Walk.


AND for something else artistic, fun and environmentally friendly, the Broadway East Art Walk will be collecting broken umbrellas to upcycle them and create the Mount Pleasant Canopy Project. If you wish to get a sense of what this type of project ‘could’ look like check out these great displays in Agueda, Portugal. You are asked to bring your broken umbrellas to the Community Film Festival. You can also leave the umbrellas at the front desk of The Mount Pleasant Neighbourhood House, 800 E Broadway, during their normal hours Monday – Friday from 9:00 am to 4:30 pm. This is another great community project funded by the Vancouver Foundation through the Neighbourhood Small Grants program.
