I'm curating a digital shrine at Parade of Lost Souls! Please make a digital shrine and send it in, or text message / twitter during the Parade!

Call for submissions

Digital Shrine at
Parade of the Lost Souls 2008
Oct 25th, 2008,
Grandview Park,
Vancouver, BC
Time: 6.30 PM, procession at 7:00 PM

Interviews with

Reg Harkema on Leslie, My Name is Evil
Jeff Carter on Inside Passage
Tom Scholte on Crime
plus Waiting for Sancho and more!

I created it to try and rekindle some kind of underground film thing in Vancouver that I think is, well, just a bit TOO underground. This year's Vancouver International Film Festival was the kicker for me, I finally felt like taking part again, having worked on two of the films screening, and a recent visit to a Zine fair / comics show at the Vancouver Art Gallery reminded me that it is really all about just getting it done.
