Partnered & Upcoming Events
This year Heritage Vancouver is a community Partner for "City Beats: Lost Vancouver from the 40s to the 60", three short films at the Doxa Film Festival. In order not to be disappointed, purchase your tickets in advance (links below).
Friday, May 30 | 7:00 pm | Vancity Theatre
As B.C. marks a century and a half as a province, it is just over 100 years since the first film of our city was made. Most of the early films were made to promote the city to visitors, and there is little record of our daily lives. But there were rare portraits made by insiders, those who lived and worked in the city, in small film societies or with the newly spawned television film crews. Three finely-crafted short works take the unique vision of each team of artists to reflect a time that shaped Vancouver—the post-war boom years from the 1940s to the 1960s — and reveal a city that is almost unrecognizable to us today.
Graham Peat is the co-owner of Videomatica, Vancouver’s best-known source for movies on DVD. He also hosts and programs film events throughout the year and is the co-author of Show It In Public, a guide book and website resource for showing films in public. He is a member of the AV B.C. Film Heritage board and is passionate about old celluloid.
