The Victoria Film Festival

VFF 2022: February 4 - 13 // The 28th Victoria Film Festival features ten days of Canadian and international films, outstanding special events, and an industry event that gets you in the mood for amour – oops, no, I meant project partnerships. Did I mention the pink carpet – yeah, it’s pink and we like it like that. We bring boldness and lots of films for thought. If you’re not interested in a worldview, then you should go to a Hollywood movie. We believe in a huge melting pot which makes for something really tasty. By the way, did I mention that the Festival is a charitable organization?

ARTIST TALK
BRETT GAYLOR:
RESIST THE METAVERSE

FEB 9, 8:00 PM, CINEMA ONBOARD (PRINCE OF WHALES BOAT, INNER HARBOUR)
Bring a smartphone, board a boat in the Inner Harbour, and join Brett Gaylor (documentary filmmaker) and Mike Wozniewski (President & CTO, Hololabs) for a hands-on demonstration and interactive conversation about their augmented-reality Instagram “meta-documentary”. Discover the power and perils of facial-recognition data-harvesting technologies — and how to make your “metaverse” a “better-verse”. Moderated by UVic’s David Leach and SFU’s Kate Hennessy.
