Busy packing and preparing for screenings in BC at the end of the month of the film program Treasures from the Far Fur Country, featuring excerpts from the 1920 Hudson’s Bay Company film The Romance of the Far Fur Country.
This special program will include 30 minutes of archival footage, a presentation and Q&A following the screening. We look forward to connecting with community members who can help put names to faces of the people in this rarely seen archival film footage. We will be in Alert Bay August 2-4 to videotape stories, memories and record names inspired by this rare cinematic time capsule.
Very excited to collaborate with these venues for the following screenings:
-Tuesday, July 31, 7 pm: Vancity Theatre, Vancouver, BC
-Wednesday, Aug 1, 7 pm: Cinecenta Theatre, Victoria, BC
-Thursday, Aug 2, 4:30 pm: U’mista Cultural Centre, Alert Bay, BC
Please save the date, or pass on the details to friends/family in BC.
Special thank to the Vancity Theatre, Victoria Historical Society, Friends of the BC Archives, Cinecenta Theatre and U’mista Cultural Centre for supporting these local events.
