    Vancouver International Film Festival

    The Vancouver International Film Festival is a movie festival based out of the Vancity Theatre that takes place from late September until mid-October.

    In 2019 the event runs from Thursday, September 26th, until Friday, October 11th, and films show at half a dozen or so different theatres around Vancouver.

    Vancouver Film Festival

    The Vancouver International Film Festival is one of the largest film festivals in North America. It’s attended by well over 100,000 people and features more than 300 films each year.

    The festival showcases internationally-acclaimed and award-winning films as well as lesser known movies. It also boasts the largest selection of Asian-produced films of any festival outside of Asia, and one of the largest collections of Canadian-made productions anywhere.

    Many of the films at the Vancouver International Film Festival are in English, but a significant number are also in other languages with English subtitles. Films from over 70 different countries are typically featured and all in their original soundtracks and languages.

    2019 Film Festival

    In the fall of 2019 the Vancouver International Film Festival celebrates its 38th anniversary. As with other years, every genre of film is featured including action movies, comedies, dramas, documentaries, science fiction films, horror movies and more.

    At the film festival hundreds of movies are shown, obviously, but there are also talks and gala events.

    Festival Films

    The Vancouver International Film Festival features hundreds of films from all across the globe. To help attendees find movies they might be interested in, films are organized by screening dates, content types, genres, themes, theatre venues, titles, countries of origin and directors.

He is highly regarded for his open stages and ability to bring different musicians from around the world together to his weekly shows. Each show is different with a variety of musical styles and influences including jazz, blues, rock, pop, country and Latino music. In 2002, Rob won the Country Music Association Instrumentalist of the Year and he has opened for a number of great players, including Merle Saunders, Jerry Garcia Band, Robin Trower, Jack Bruce, Melvin Seals, Galactic and Karl Densin. Rob is passionate about high-quality live music and has played throughout the U.S. and western Canada.

    LOLA PARKS is a Langley-based singer-songwriter who has been turning heads for years. From fronting a 17-piece big band to co-founding and being sole lyricist for original folk rock group, Sonnenblume,she has staged her own show for over a decade. A multi-award winner, including “Most Outstanding Musician – Vocal Jazz” and “Female Songwriter of the Year”, her 2011 release (Here) garnered three Vancouver Island Music Awards nominations and continues to receive international and playlist attention. Her music is best described as boho chic soul folk carried by dangerous lyrics, hypnotic grooves and a seductive voice. Lola has performed on five continents, led several Western Canada tours and shared billing with numerous Grammy and Juno award winners/nominees.

    IGNACIO (Nacho) CHAVEZ started his music education in Mexico City in 1999. In 2003 moved to Los Angeles to enroll at the LA College of Music, where he studied with Frank Gambale of the Chick Corea Electric Band. Being exposed to different styles of music over the years, Nacho has evolved as an amazing guitarist with an articulate touch. He can throw it back and forth with the best of them in any genre, with his playing reflecting a strong influence of jazz, rock, country and Brazilian music. Nacho spent three years in Las Cabos playing at Pueblo Bonito Resorts but now plays full time in Mazatlán.

    Thursday Artist Talk – Ron Long, The Art, Technique, and Challenge of Nature Photography

    Drawing on examples from his long career and worldwide travels, Ron Long illustrates how he has dealt with the challenges of capturing nature ranging from Nudibranchs (or sea slugs) to birds in flight and almost everything in between.

    Many of the photographs he will share from his portfolio have not previously been seen. Long will also discuss photographic techniques that any photographer—from amateur to professional—can learn from.

    About the Artist

    Ron Long had a 36-year career as a professional photographer at Simon Fraser University. For much of that time, he photographed exclusively for the Bio-Sciences Department. Now retired, Ron travels to nature hot spots around the world. Recent trips have taken him to southern Africa, South America, and Australia, as well as many locations in North America. Ron is past president of the Native Plant Society of British Columbia, is currently active in the Vancouver Natural History Society, and is on the board of the Alpine Garden Club.

      Vancouver International Film Festival

      Vancouver International Film Festival

      The Vancouver International Film Festival is a movie festival based out of the Vancity Theatre that takes place from late September until mid-October.

      In 2019 the event runs from Thursday, September 26th, until Friday, October 11th, and films show at half a dozen or so different theatres around Vancouver.

      Vancouver Film Festival

      The Vancouver International Film Festival is one of the largest film festivals in North America. It’s attended by well over 100,000 people and features more than 300 films each year.

      The festival showcases internationally-acclaimed and award-winning films as well as lesser known movies. It also boasts the largest selection of Asian-produced films of any festival outside of Asia, and one of the largest collections of Canadian-made productions anywhere.

      Many of the films at the Vancouver International Film Festival are in English, but a significant number are also in other languages with English subtitles. Films from over 70 different countries are typically featured and all in their original soundtracks and languages.

      2019 Film Festival

      In the fall of 2019 the Vancouver International Film Festival celebrates its 38th anniversary. As with other years, every genre of film is featured including action movies, comedies, dramas, documentaries, science fiction films, horror movies and more.

      At the film festival hundreds of movies are shown, obviously, but there are also talks and gala events.

      Festival Films

      The Vancouver International Film Festival features hundreds of films from all across the globe. To help attendees find movies they might be interested in, films are organized by screening dates, content types, genres, themes, theatre venues, titles, countries of origin and directors.

      Admission prices at the Vancouver International Film Festival vary depending on your age and the day and time of films. Prices from 2019 are listed below. As you’ll see, prices range from $10 to $22.

    Vancouver International Film Festival

    Vancouver International Film Festival

    The Vancouver International Film Festival is a movie festival based out of the Vancity Theatre that takes place from late September until mid-October.

    In 2019 the event runs from Thursday, September 26th, until Friday, October 11th, and films show at half a dozen or so different theatres around Vancouver.

    Vancouver Film Festival

    The Vancouver International Film Festival is one of the largest film festivals in North America. It’s attended by well over 100,000 people and features more than 300 films each year.

    The festival showcases internationally-acclaimed and award-winning films as well as lesser known movies. It also boasts the largest selection of Asian-produced films of any festival outside of Asia, and one of the largest collections of Canadian-made productions anywhere.

    Many of the films at the Vancouver International Film Festival are in English, but a significant number are also in other languages with English subtitles. Films from over 70 different countries are typically featured and all in their original soundtracks and languages.

    2019 Film Festival

    In the fall of 2019 the Vancouver International Film Festival celebrates its 38th anniversary. As with other years, every genre of film is featured including action movies, comedies, dramas, documentaries, science fiction films, horror movies and more.

    At the film festival hundreds of movies are shown, obviously, but there are also talks and gala events.

    Festival Films

    The Vancouver International Film Festival features hundreds of films from all across the globe. To help attendees find movies they might be interested in, films are organized by screening dates, content types, genres, themes, theatre venues, titles, countries of origin and directors.

    RAINCITY

    https://www.thatbandraincity.com | https://youtu.be/j9fgGbAB48c

    Raincity is a Vancouver-based Funk-Rock group making waves with their unique sound. Fronted by female leads on saxophone and vocals, their audacious performances are loaded with engaging interplay and explosive energy. The five members of Raincity combine their eclectic influences including Amy Winehouse, Moon Hooch, and the Red Hot Chilli Peppers, creating a distinctive sound with infectious grooves, chameleon tones, and no regard for boundaries. Each musician is equipped with as much personality as style, leading to a dynamic live experience that is unapologetic and empowering.

    Raincity first came together as a jazz trio in 2016, known then as ‘Raincity Blue’ before growing to a 5-piece. With the support of Creative BC, they recorded their debut album “Stuck on Replay” at Rain City Recorders in August 2017. They released the album at the Wise Hall in January 2018 to a sold-out audience. Early in 2018 the band progressed to the Top 100 of CBC Searchlight and they won contests including the Hard Rock Casino’s Rock the Mic competition, Music Heals Covers for the Cause contest, and The Roxy Launch Project.

    Throughout 2018, Raincity performed at a number of festivals including Victoria’s Rifflandia, the TD Vancouver International Jazz Festival, and with the help of FACTOR, presented at Canadian Music Week in Toronto. They appeared in articles on the Vancouver 24 Hr, Do250, The Nanaimo News Bulletin, Snipe News, and featured as guests on radio stations such as Pacific Sound Radio, Roundhouse Radio, and CiTR Radio.

    Raincity recorded their self-titled EP at Warehouse Studios in November 2018 (released June 2019). Most recently they opened for Our Lady Peace and Bif Naked at the Surrey Canada Day main stage and they recorded two music videos with Wayne Chung and Bailey Wood set to release late 2019. They look forward to Vancouver Island, Interior BC, and Washington tours this summer and recording a new single in August at Bluelight Studios.

      RAINCITY

      https://www.thatbandraincity.com | https://youtu.be/j9fgGbAB48c

      Raincity is a Vancouver-based Funk-Rock group making waves with their unique sound. Fronted by female leads on saxophone and vocals, their audacious performances are loaded with engaging interplay and explosive energy. The five members of Raincity combine their eclectic influences including Amy Winehouse, Moon Hooch, and the Red Hot Chilli Peppers, creating a distinctive sound with infectious grooves, chameleon tones, and no regard for boundaries. Each musician is equipped with as much personality as style, leading to a dynamic live experience that is unapologetic and empowering.

      Raincity first came together as a jazz trio in 2016, known then as ‘Raincity Blue’ before growing to a 5-piece. With the support of Creative BC, they recorded their debut album “Stuck on Replay” at Rain City Recorders in August 2017. They released the album at the Wise Hall in January 2018 to a sold-out audience. Early in 2018 the band progressed to the Top 100 of CBC Searchlight and they won contests including the Hard Rock Casino’s Rock the Mic competition, Music Heals Covers for the Cause contest, and The Roxy Launch Project.

      Throughout 2018, Raincity performed at a number of festivals including Victoria’s Rifflandia, the TD Vancouver International Jazz Festival, and with the help of FACTOR, presented at Canadian Music Week in Toronto. They appeared in articles on the Vancouver 24 Hr, Do250, The Nanaimo News Bulletin, Snipe News, and featured as guests on radio stations such as Pacific Sound Radio, Roundhouse Radio, and CiTR Radio.

      Raincity recorded their self-titled EP at Warehouse Studios in November 2018 (released June 2019). Most recently they opened for Our Lady Peace and Bif Naked at the Surrey Canada Day main stage and they recorded two music videos with Wayne Chung and Bailey Wood set to release late 2019. They look forward to Vancouver Island, Interior BC, and Washington tours this summer and recording a new single in August at Bluelight Studios.

    Vancouver Film Festival

    The Vancouver International Film Festival is one of the largest film festivals in North America. It’s attended by well over 100,000 people and features more than 300 films each year.

    Margit Sky Project with Special Guest Early Spirit: A Musical and Spiritual Experience

    About this Event

    The Margit Sky Project is an incredibly diverse group of musicians led by Margit Gossage and Rod (Little Sky) Bandura who are partners on stage and in life. When you hear them play, the close connection between the two will leave you wanting to hear more. They deliver songs with a strong power of emotion whether the songs are the band’s original or cover tunes. Website: https://margitskyproject.com/

    Early Spirit is Will Chernoff (bass), Gabriel Dubreuil (violin), Ben Kelly (drums), and Jay Knutson (guitar). At almost every performance, fans ask “Are you a family band?” But these four sons of Vancouver, BC are related only by music, and they’re proud to release Early Spirit’s first album, Unrelated. Website: https://www.earlyspirit.ca/

    The combination of the two bands, one with indigenous heritage and the other with celtic heritage, sharing their music on the Qayqayt Stage at the Columbia, will be a powerful musical and spiritual experience for the Reconciliation movement that is long overdue.

    Join us.

    ROCK THE RINK

    OCTOBER 5, 2019

    BUY TICKETS

    By the half-way point of last year’s sold out Thank You Canada tour, it was clear to figure skating superstars, Tessa VirtueScott Moir and Patrick Chan,that they were far from done creating and developing a new style of skating entertainment.  Conversations then began in earnest to focus on the next logical step.

    Today, Virtue and Moir appeared on CTV’s Your Morning, to announce Rock The Rink – an annual tour that focuses on being more than a figure skating show. Combining the highest level of on-ice superstar talent with an ever-evolving touring production, Rock The Rink will produce the highest value of entertainment. This year – along with upgrades to lighting, video and interactive technology – live music will be introduced to the show, with featured special musical guest, Birds of Bellwoods.

    “Last year, we rode the Olympic wave and carried the momentum through the Thank You Canada tour – a fulfilling project that truly allowed us to connect with fans coast to coast,” says Virtue. “This year, it’s critical that we elevate the production and generate authentic entertainment in new and creative ways. Scott and I have spent our career striving for more, taking risks, and daring ourselves to be better…our approach to this is no different.”

    Adds Moir, “The goal for Rock The Rink is to be something that fans of skating and live entertainment will look forward to year after year, knowing that it will always be a can’t miss night,” adds Moir.

    “We want to give people a memorable experience and broaden the scope of what can be done in the show skating realm,” continues Virtue. “We are ready for fresh and innovative ways to share our passion with audiences across the country!”

    “I’m honored to be a part of such a unique and innovative production,” reflects Chan. “Anyone that has followed our careers understands our dedication to creativity and entertainment. We want each and every person to be a part of an experience and not just a ‘show’. What we’re creating hasn’t been done before and I can’t wait to show it to the fans.”

    The production will tour from coast-to-coast across Canada, and will include a few select U.S. cities as well.  The cast will again feature Canadian greats, Tessa Virtue and Scott MoirPatrick Chan, Kaetlyn Osmond and Elvis Stojko. The show will also be bringing some world-renowned skating talent from Europe and the U.S..  Italian Olympic Medalist and World Champion, and Carolina Kostner will each tour in North America for the first time, while Olympic Medalist and four time U.S. National Champion, Jeremy Abbott, will return to Canadian touring for the first time in seven years.

    Tickets will go on sale Friday, May 3at rocktherink.com. The cross-country tour launches Saturday, October 5 in Abbotsford, BC and will hit over 30 cities before wrapping in St. John’s, NL.  The tour, which is presented by Round Room, is proud of its continued relationship with Bell Media as the official tour media sponsor.

      Vancouver International Film Festival

      The Vancouver International Film Festival is a movie festival based out of the Vancity Theatre that takes place from late September until mid-October.

      In 2019 the event runs from Thursday, September 26th, until Friday, October 11th, and films show at half a dozen or so different theatres around Vancouver.

      Vancouver Film Festival

      The Vancouver International Film Festival is one of the largest film festivals in North America. It’s attended by well over 100,000 people and features more than 300 films each year.

      The festival showcases internationally-acclaimed and award-winning films as well as lesser known movies. It also boasts the largest selection of Asian-produced films of any festival outside of Asia, and one of the largest collections of Canadian-made productions anywhere.

      Many of the films at the Vancouver International Film Festival are in English, but a significant number are also in other languages with English subtitles. Films from over 70 different countries are typically featured and all in their original soundtracks and languages.

      2019 Film Festival

      In the fall of 2019 the Vancouver International Film Festival celebrates its 38th anniversary. As with other years, every genre of film is featured including action movies, comedies, dramas, documentaries, science fiction films, horror movies and more.

      At the film festival hundreds of movies are shown, obviously, but there are also talks and gala events.

      Festival Films

      The Vancouver International Film Festival features hundreds of films from all across the globe. To help attendees find movies they might be interested in, films are organized by screening dates, content types, genres, themes, theatre venues, titles, countries of origin and directors.

      Margit Sky Project with Special Guest Early Spirit: A Musical and Spiritual Experience

      About this Event

      The Margit Sky Project is an incredibly diverse group of musicians led by Margit Gossage and Rod (Little Sky) Bandura who are partners on stage and in life. When you hear them play, the close connection between the two will leave you wanting to hear more. They deliver songs with a strong power of emotion whether the songs are the band’s original or cover tunes. Website: https://margitskyproject.com/

      Early Spirit is Will Chernoff (bass), Gabriel Dubreuil (violin), Ben Kelly (drums), and Jay Knutson (guitar). At almost every performance, fans ask “Are you a family band?” But these four sons of Vancouver, BC are related only by music, and they’re proud to release Early Spirit’s first album, Unrelated. Website: https://www.earlyspirit.ca/

      The combination of the two bands, one with indigenous heritage and the other with celtic heritage, sharing their music on the Qayqayt Stage at the Columbia, will be a powerful musical and spiritual experience for the Reconciliation movement that is long overdue.

      ROCK THE RINK

      OCTOBER 5, 2019

      BUY TICKETS

      By the half-way point of last year’s sold out Thank You Canada tour, it was clear to figure skating superstars, Tessa VirtueScott Moir and Patrick Chan,that they were far from done creating and developing a new style of skating entertainment.  Conversations then began in earnest to focus on the next logical step.

      Today, Virtue and Moir appeared on CTV’s Your Morning, to announce Rock The Rink – an annual tour that focuses on being more than a figure skating show. Combining the highest level of on-ice superstar talent with an ever-evolving touring production, Rock The Rink will produce the highest value of entertainment. This year – along with upgrades to lighting, video and interactive technology – live music will be introduced to the show, with featured special musical guest, Birds of Bellwoods.

      “Last year, we rode the Olympic wave and carried the momentum through the Thank You Canada tour – a fulfilling project that truly allowed us to connect with fans coast to coast,” says Virtue. “This year, it’s critical that we elevate the production and generate authentic entertainment in new and creative ways. Scott and I have spent our career striving for more, taking risks, and daring ourselves to be better…our approach to this is no different.”

      Adds Moir, “The goal for Rock The Rink is to be something that fans of skating and live entertainment will look forward to year after year, knowing that it will always be a can’t miss night,” adds Moir.

      “We want to give people a memorable experience and broaden the scope of what can be done in the show skating realm,” continues Virtue. “We are ready for fresh and innovative ways to share our passion with audiences across the country!”

      “I’m honored to be a part of such a unique and innovative production,” reflects Chan. “Anyone that has followed our careers understands our dedication to creativity and entertainment. We want each and every person to be a part of an experience and not just a ‘show’. What we’re creating hasn’t been done before and I can’t wait to show it to the fans.”

      The production will tour from coast-to-coast across Canada, and will include a few select U.S. cities as well.  The cast will again feature Canadian greats, Tessa Virtue and Scott MoirPatrick Chan, Kaetlyn Osmond and Elvis Stojko. The show will also be bringing some world-renowned skating talent from Europe and the U.S..  Italian Olympic Medalist and World Champion, and Carolina Kostner will each tour in North America for the first time, while Olympic Medalist and four time U.S. National Champion, Jeremy Abbott, will return to Canadian touring for the first time in seven years.

      Tickets will go on sale Friday, May 3at rocktherink.com. The cross-country tour launches Saturday, October 5 in Abbotsford, BC and will hit over 30 cities before wrapping in St. John’s, NL.  The tour, which is presented by Round Room, is proud of its continued relationship with Bell Media as the official tour media sponsor.

    Vancouver International Film Festival

    The Vancouver International Film Festival is a movie festival based out of the Vancity Theatre that takes place from late September until mid-October.

    In 2019 the event runs from Thursday, September 26th, until Friday, October 11th, and films show at half a dozen or so different theatres around Vancouver.

    Vancouver Film Festival

    The Vancouver International Film Festival is one of the largest film festivals in North America. It’s attended by well over 100,000 people and features more than 300 films each year.

    The festival showcases internationally-acclaimed and award-winning films as well as lesser known movies. It also boasts the largest selection of Asian-produced films of any festival outside of Asia, and one of the largest collections of Canadian-made productions anywhere.

    Many of the films at the Vancouver International Film Festival are in English, but a significant number are also in other languages with English subtitles. Films from over 70 different countries are typically featured and all in their original soundtracks and languages.

    2019 Film Festival

    In the fall of 2019 the Vancouver International Film Festival celebrates its 38th anniversary. As with other years, every genre of film is featured including action movies, comedies, dramas, documentaries, science fiction films, horror movies and more.

    At the film festival hundreds of movies are shown, obviously, but there are also talks and gala events.

    Festival Films

    The Vancouver International Film Festival features hundreds of films from all across the globe. To help attendees find movies they might be interested in, films are organized by screening dates, content types, genres, themes, theatre venues, titles, countries of origin and directors.

      Vancouver International Film Festival

      Vancouver International Film Festival

      The Vancouver International Film Festival is a movie festival based out of the Vancity Theatre that takes place from late September until mid-October.

      In 2019 the event runs from Thursday, September 26th, until Friday, October 11th, and films show at half a dozen or so different theatres around Vancouver.

      Vancouver Film Festival

      The Vancouver International Film Festival is one of the largest film festivals in North America. It’s attended by well over 100,000 people and features more than 300 films each year.

      The festival showcases internationally-acclaimed and award-winning films as well as lesser known movies. It also boasts the largest selection of Asian-produced films of any festival outside of Asia, and one of the largest collections of Canadian-made productions anywhere.

      Many of the films at the Vancouver International Film Festival are in English, but a significant number are also in other languages with English subtitles. Films from over 70 different countries are typically featured and all in their original soundtracks and languages.

      2019 Film Festival

      In the fall of 2019 the Vancouver International Film Festival celebrates its 38th anniversary. As with other years, every genre of film is featured including action movies, comedies, dramas, documentaries, science fiction films, horror movies and more.

      At the film festival hundreds of movies are shown, obviously, but there are also talks and gala events.

      Festival Films

      The Vancouver International Film Festival features hundreds of films from all across the globe. To help attendees find movies they might be interested in, films are organized by screening dates, content types, genres, themes, theatre venues, titles, countries of origin and directors.

    Vancouver International Film Festival

    Vancouver International Film Festival

    The Vancouver International Film Festival is a movie festival based out of the Vancity Theatre that takes place from late September until mid-October.

    In 2019 the event runs from Thursday, September 26th, until Friday, October 11th, and films show at half a dozen or so different theatres around Vancouver.

    Vancouver Film Festival

    The Vancouver International Film Festival is one of the largest film festivals in North America. It’s attended by well over 100,000 people and features more than 300 films each year.

    The festival showcases internationally-acclaimed and award-winning films as well as lesser known movies. It also boasts the largest selection of Asian-produced films of any festival outside of Asia, and one of the largest collections of Canadian-made productions anywhere.

    Many of the films at the Vancouver International Film Festival are in English, but a significant number are also in other languages with English subtitles. Films from over 70 different countries are typically featured and all in their original soundtracks and languages.

    2019 Film Festival

    In the fall of 2019 the Vancouver International Film Festival celebrates its 38th anniversary. As with other years, every genre of film is featured including action movies, comedies, dramas, documentaries, science fiction films, horror movies and more.

    At the film festival hundreds of movies are shown, obviously, but there are also talks and gala events.

    Festival Films

    The Vancouver International Film Festival features hundreds of films from all across the globe. To help attendees find movies they might be interested in, films are organized by screening dates, content types, genres, themes, theatre venues, titles, countries of origin and directors.

    Vancouver International Film Festival

    The Vancouver International Film Festival is a movie festival based out of the Vancity Theatre that takes place from late September until mid-October.

    In 2019 the event runs from Thursday, September 26th, until Friday, October 11th, and films show at half a dozen or so different theatres around Vancouver.

    Vancouver Film Festival

    The Vancouver International Film Festival is one of the largest film festivals in North America. It’s attended by well over 100,000 people and features more than 300 films each year.

    The festival showcases internationally-acclaimed and award-winning films as well as lesser known movies. It also boasts the largest selection of Asian-produced films of any festival outside of Asia, and one of the largest collections of Canadian-made productions anywhere.

    Many of the films at the Vancouver International Film Festival are in English, but a significant number are also in other languages with English subtitles. Films from over 70 different countries are typically featured and all in their original soundtracks and languages.

    2019 Film Festival

    In the fall of 2019 the Vancouver International Film Festival celebrates its 38th anniversary. As with other years, every genre of film is featured including action movies, comedies, dramas, documentaries, science fiction films, horror movies and more.

    At the film festival hundreds of movies are shown, obviously, but there are also talks and gala events.

    Festival Films

    The Vancouver International Film Festival features hundreds of films from all across the globe. To help attendees find movies they might be interested in, films are organized by screening dates, content types, genres, themes, theatre venues, titles, countries of origin and directors.

  • The Breath Empowerment & Healing Sound Bath with Matthew Kocel
    19:00-21:00
    2019.10.09

    The Breath Empowerment & Healing Sound Bath with Matthew Kocel

    “Over 2 decades experience in Yoga, Meditation, Energy Healing & Internal Martial Arts and I’ve never felt energy like this before…”

    Space is limited to 20 participants.

    A note from Matthew:

    “The Breath Empowerment is one of the most intensely powerful energy healing practices I have ever found.

    As in my sound healing journeys, this sacred practice routinely produces a profound experience for anyone willing to sincerely try it.

    It is one of the few physical exercises you can do that increases your body’s alkalinity; this is extremely healing as massive amounts of energy enter your body and create an engine-like vibration.”

    ============================

    The Breath Empowerment is done lying down on a yoga mat and no prior experience is necessary.

    Matthew will be right there to guide you through the process and prepare you for the next phase of the adventure…

    a transformational healing sound journey.

    Matthew creates lush waves of vocal harmonics, overtones and throat singing that washes over you again and again, leaving an open hearted sense of belonging, well being and peace.

    His music has been described as medicine for the Earth and the heart of humanity… The effects are often compared to sacred plant medicines.

    Together these two practices create an “off the charts” experience!

    Space is limited to 20 participants and prepaid registration is required to attend.

    Prepare for transformation.

    *** Please Note: Due to the intense healing nature of this practice, the doors will be locked and no late entries allowed once we begin the Breath Empowerment. This exercise is NOT recommended if you are pregnant or have a history of seizures. ***

    • The Breath Empowerment & Healing Sound Bath with Matthew Kocel
      19:00-21:00
      2019.10.09

      The Breath Empowerment & Healing Sound Bath with Matthew Kocel

      “Over 2 decades experience in Yoga, Meditation, Energy Healing & Internal Martial Arts and I’ve never felt energy like this before…”

      Space is limited to 20 participants.

      A note from Matthew:

      “The Breath Empowerment is one of the most intensely powerful energy healing practices I have ever found.

      As in my sound healing journeys, this sacred practice routinely produces a profound experience for anyone willing to sincerely try it.

      It is one of the few physical exercises you can do that increases your body’s alkalinity; this is extremely healing as massive amounts of energy enter your body and create an engine-like vibration.”

      ============================

      The Breath Empowerment is done lying down on a yoga mat and no prior experience is necessary.

      Matthew will be right there to guide you through the process and prepare you for the next phase of the adventure…

      a transformational healing sound journey.

      Matthew creates lush waves of vocal harmonics, overtones and throat singing that washes over you again and again, leaving an open hearted sense of belonging, well being and peace.

      His music has been described as medicine for the Earth and the heart of humanity… The effects are often compared to sacred plant medicines.

      Together these two practices create an “off the charts” experience!

      Space is limited to 20 participants and prepaid registration is required to attend.

      Prepare for transformation.

      www.OmShaman.com

      *** Please Note: Due to the intense healing nature of this practice, the doors will be locked and no late entries allowed once we begin the Breath Empowerment. This exercise is NOT recommended if you are pregnant or have a history of seizures. ***

    Vancouver International Film Festival

    Vancouver International Film Festival

    The Vancouver International Film Festival is a movie festival based out of the Vancity Theatre that takes place from late September until mid-October.

    In 2019 the event runs from Thursday, September 26th, until Friday, October 11th, and films show at half a dozen or so different theatres around Vancouver.

    Vancouver Film Festival

    The Vancouver International Film Festival is one of the largest film festivals in North America. It’s attended by well over 100,000 people and features more than 300 films each year.

    The festival showcases internationally-acclaimed and award-winning films as well as lesser known movies. It also boasts the largest selection of Asian-produced films of any festival outside of Asia, and one of the largest collections of Canadian-made productions anywhere.

    Many of the films at the Vancouver International Film Festival are in English, but a significant number are also in other languages with English subtitles. Films from over 70 different countries are typically featured and all in their original soundtracks and languages.

    2019 Film Festival

    In the fall of 2019 the Vancouver International Film Festival celebrates its 38th anniversary. As with other years, every genre of film is featured including action movies, comedies, dramas, documentaries, science fiction films, horror movies and more.

    At the film festival hundreds of movies are shown, obviously, but there are also talks and gala events.

    Festival Films

    The Vancouver International Film Festival features hundreds of films from all across the globe. To help attendees find movies they might be interested in, films are organized by screening dates, content types, genres, themes, theatre venues, titles, countries of origin and directors.

    What does it mean to be a senior in today’s world? The Seniors Create Project delved into this question through a multi-year process of gathering the stories and lived experiences of Metro Vancouver seniors. The result is this one-act play full of humour and heart—performed by professional actors—that explores the myths and realities of growing old and allows us to share in the view from their window.

    We gratefully acknowledge the support of the City of Surrey’s Cultural Grants Program and Maple Ridge’s Community Action Table.

    By Mark Crawford
    An Arts Club Theatre Company production

    When Brett inherits a family estate, he and his partner, Drew, move to a quiet little tourist town to set up a B&B. But will these big city boys face friction in their new community? With dozens of hilarious characters all portrayed by two actors, it’s a heartfelt comedy about “being out,” skeletons in the closet, and finding a place to call home.

    CHEECH & CHONG – O CANNABIS TOUR

    OCTOBER 10, 2019

    BUY TICKETS

    $55.00, $69.50, $85.00, $125.00 (Plus service charges)

    Iconic comedy duo Cheech & Chong defined an era with their hilariously irreverent, satirical, counter-culture comedy routines. Cheech Marin and Tommy Chong have been entertaining fans for more than four decades and are ready to celebrate recent updates to Canadian legislation with their new O Cannabis Tour which will hit 14 markets across the country this fall.

    With nine albums released from 1972 through 1985, Cheech and Chong were nominated for four Grammy Awards, winning the Grammy Award for Best Comedy Album with their third album, Los Cochinos, released in 1973. Big Bambu, their second album, was the biggest selling comedy record of all time in 1972 and remained so for many years. Their stunningly successful comedy streak transitioned to film in 1978 with their first movie, “Up In Smoke,” the highest grossing comedy of 1978, topping $100 million at the box office. Cheech and Chong co-wrote and starred in a total of eight feature films together, all directed by Chong.

    Cheech Marin is a paradox in the world of entertainment. Cheech is an actor, director, writer, musician, art collector, and humanitarian, a man who has enough talent, humor, and intelligence to do just about anything. He is truly a multi-generational star, having starred in films like Born In East L.A. and Tin Cup, and on televisions shows like Nash Bridges and Jane The Virgin.

    Tommy Chong began his entertainment career as a musician in a Canadian-based rhythm and blues band. Eventually, he landed a gig with the “Vancouvers” and co-wrote the band’s 1960s hit, “Does Your Mama Know About Me.” Chong then turned towards the life of an actor and appeared in several films including National Lampoon’s Senior Trip. Chong has also starred, most notably, on “That 70’s Show,” and guest starred on “Dharma & Greg” and “The George Lopez Show.”
