Well, we’re still winding down from this summer’s amazing Cinemafantastique fest and Vancouver’s first-ever Tromafest! But there’s more in store as we roll into the Autumn months…
Shivers Film Society is partnering with Scalarama in the UK (sponsored by the BFI) to bring a little John Waters love to the big screen. This September, the BFI and Scalarama are launching a huge John Waters 50th filmmaking anniversary retrospective. Yes, the mad genius has been making films for fifty years now! As part of this celebration, the Shivers Film Society will be presenting a Scalarama screening of John Water’s Cecil B. Demented double-billed with Troma’s Terror Firmer (directed by Lloyd Kaufman) in a night celebrating anarchy in filmmaking! Sunday, September 13th, 7:00 pm at the Norm Theatre (UBC).
Following this, in October, Cinemafantastique presents it’s first annual 13-Hour Horror Film Fest! Saturday, October 24th, starting at 11:00 am, the day will be loaded with Vampires, Bugs, Psycho Killers, Killer Machines, Giallo, Razor Blades, Hacksaws, and General Mayhem. There will be at least 6 feature films running all day, all cult/horror classics, but the catch is… we’re not going to say which films you’ll get to see on the big screen! You can guess all you want… and if you’re right, you might even get some trivia prizes! It’s going to be a fun day of horror, a few laughs, some surprises and a little trivia with some giveaways! At the Norm Theatre (UBC), Oct. 24, 11:00 am – midnight.
ALL ADMISSIONS BY DONATION!
