VIFPA FEATURETTE I approx 12-15 min

The Victoria Independent Film Professional Association (VIFPA) is a non-profit association of independent film professionals based on Vancouver Island. Actively involved in the development of award-winning film and television productions, VIFPA members are creators of documentaries, television series, dramatic films, music videos, educational programming, animation, and more. This short featurette showcases the breadth of filmmaking talent that calls Vancouver Island home.

Director: Darlene Tait | 16 min

During the Dutch Hunger winter of 1945, Annika Myers traded her family’s treasured painting of a feast for rations. Now, at 84, she has found it, and she wants Evan O’neill, the diligent retired manager of a grocery store, to help her steal it back. But is it truly the painting she hungers for? Evan, who has something of his own to reclaim, is faced with a difficult but life-affirming choice.

Directors: Mark Bradley and Ian Toews | 24 min

Volunteers maintain 36 acres of gardens at the official residence of the Lieutenant Governor of BC. Home gardeners exchange seeds that will grow successfully in their unique rainforest climate. An amateur beekeeper shares honey with his neighbours. A community garden grows produce for the local food bank on remediated land.

Directors: Peiter Romer and Gordie Trifa | 27 min

Black Rock follows the intertwining stories of a community divided, those who are determined to protect the land and those who are working for a pay cheque at the uranium mines to survive.

Director: Lukas Hanulak | 3 min

Island-based singer/songwriter Matthew Stern, in collaboration with director Lukas Hanulak and cinematographer Daniel Zemancik, present Full Moon. All who enter this mystic pathway will suddenly find themselves in a chaotic realm of unexpected happenstance. Surrounded by names unspoken and symbols unseen, the voices of the forest can be heard speaking in riddles. Reason evades reality as the senses are overtaken by a spiritual journey you can only see to believe.

If a film is sold out, a certain amount of  seats are held for pass holders. If they aren’t claimed, extra seats are sold to standby attendees, 10 – 5 minutes before the screening starts.
