IMG_2293TUESDAY, MAY 28 from NOON to 4pm

Flick has been facilitating a video installation art project with Nootka Elementary and Windermere High School, which will culminate in an exhibition on Tuesday, May 28th at the Echoes installation on Kits Beach: here’s a map.   Flick will be back at it with his fixation on old TV’s!

Come see the portraits which Windermere students shot at Renfrew-Collingwood Senior’s Centre with the help of community artist Carmen Rosen.

This project is a part of the Vancouver Biennale Big Ideas Art in Action Education Program.

These pictures show the process leading up to our installation!

ON SATURDAY, MAY 18TH, FROM 1-3 PM,


AT THE SUNSET COMMUNITY CENTRE
TO CELEBRATE


Something Collective, the Artists-in-Residence team at SCC, has worked and played over the last few months engaging community members in a variety of arts activities that map the sounds, people, growth, play spaces, and movements of the Sunset Neighbourhood.


We Are Here has allowed community members to explore their neighborhood through dance, sound, video, green graffiti, puppets and photography.


Now, together, with your friends and neighbours, we’ll get to walk through a giant interactive map as we celebrate all the finished components of the project. Come and experience an interactive, living picture of the Sunset neighbourhood.


JOIN US FOR DANCE AND PUPPET PERFORMANCES, FILM AND
SOUNDSCAPE INSTALLATIONS, AS WELL AS FREE REFRESHMENTS!


This project is supported in partnership by

Moberly Arts & Cultural Centre

I wrote several articles for this book and compiled an amazing reel of scenes shot in Vancouver for the event tonight.  Come down for a free discussion and screening!

Join us as U.K.-based publisher Intellect Books launches the new book World Film Locations: Vancouver (Bristol, U.K.: Intellect, 2013) and we celebrate Vancouver films and filmmakers by discussing the past, present, and future of the local industry. Attendees will hear a few words from Professor Colin Browne (School for the Contemporary Arts, Simon Fraser University), watch a show reel (edited by Vancouver filmmaker Flick Harrison) of film scenes analysed in the new book, and join a discussion about Vancouver film led by a panel of film professionals hosted by Diane Burgess (Instructor in Film Studies, UBC) and including Loretta Sarah Todd (director, writer, producer at Nehiyawetan Productions) and Sharon McGowan (filmmaker and Associate Professor of Film Production, UBC). The evening will end with drinks and conversation and another chance to see Vancouver writer and critic Michael Turner’s On Location 2: Four Double Bills, in which eight well-known Vancouver-made films are edited to remove everything from them but their Vancouver locales.

Edited by Rachel Walls, World Film Locations: Vancouver features the work of Vancouver writers, artists, film-makers, and curators including Colin Browne, Diane Burgess, Elvy Del Bianco, Flick Harrison, David Hauka, Peter Lester, Amy Kazymerchyk, Kamala Todd, and Michael Turner. Through this writing, and images from the films and of the locations used, the book traces the history and diversity of Vancouver location filming. The book consists of 38 “scene reviews” of Canadian and Hollywood movies from 1927 to present, and seven “spotlight essays” on key filmmakers and film moments.

World Film Locations: Vancouver is part of Intellect Books’ “World Film Locations” series. Buy it at AMAZON.CA: World Film Locations: Vancouver
