Date: May 6 – 15, 2011
Location: Various venues at the 2011 DOXA Documentary Film Festival in Vancouver
DOXA Documentary Film Festival’s Spotlight on Vancouver will feature films that capture the city’s mythologies, images, and people through the distinct perspectives of filmmakers, both past and present. Three different programming streams, including a retrospective on the late filmmaker Allan King, a selection of films devoted to First Nations filmmakers, and archival and contemporary views of the city itself, will give rise to dialogue about the changing nature of place and will offer a fully realized portrait of Vancouver.
With support from the City of Vancouver’s 125th Anniversary Grants Program and the participation of the Government of Canada.
