It’s been a great year of success and trials, from launching our new films society in London, England this May, where we screened some fantastic Canadian independent features, including Deaden, $lasher$, The Hard Cut, Catholic Cheerleaders for Satan, and the short film The Red Hours (which should be premiering in Vancouver next year), to the trial attempts at retro double-features in the somewhat hilariously decrepit Rickshaw Theatre in Vancouver.
The new year is shaping up to be pretty awesome, with the launching of Shivers’ CANADADROME at the Pacific Cinematheque this January the 27th – we have local independent features, shorts, local filmmakers in attendance, and some classic Canadian cult films! We’re following this event up with a few more cinematic (and liquor-licensed) offerings throughout February – so keep an eye out for the advert in the upcoming Cinematheque magazine circulating around Vancouver (Jan/Feb) and of course, check back here often for news & updates!
Thanks to everyone who supported us this year – the audiences, the members, The Roxy in London, the distribution companies, friends and family in London and Vancouver, the film schools, and the venues and their managers who all took the time to chat with me at length about this slightly insane endeavor. It’s thanks to all of you that we’re still going!
Ho – Ho – Ho and Happy New Year.
