R2R OUTDOOR SUMMER FILM SERIES: SONG OF THE SEA

The Reel 2 Real Film Festival for Youth is excited to come back for our Outdoor Summer Film Series for 3 Fridays in August!

Join us on our first evening on Friday, August 16th for a FREE outdoor screening of Song of the Sea, at Ron Basford Park's amphitheatre (Granville Island) after sunset (9:00 pm).

From the creators of the Academy Award®-nominated The Secret of Kells comes a breathtakingly gorgeous, hand-drawn masterpiece. Based on the Irish legend of the Selkies, Song of the Sea tells the story of the last seal-child, Saoirse, and her brother Ben, who go on an epic journey to save the world of magic and discover the secrets of their past. Pursued by the owl witch, Macha, and a host of ancient and mystical creatures, Saoirse and Ben race against time to awaken Saoirse’s powers and keep the spirit world from disappearing forever. As enthralling for adults as for children young and old, Song of the Sea is a wonder of magical storytelling and visual splendor that is destined to become a classic. Watch the trailer here!

The screening will be preceded by FREE animation workshops at Performance Works, from 6:00 to 9:00 pm.

Make your own animation using some wacky props and paper cut-outs! These animation workshops offer children and families the opportunity to spark a new shared interest and show off your story-telling skills!

Workshops include:

  • Pixilation - Get animated! Choreographed by the instructor, you will glide, disappear and fly through the air. This is a great introduction to special effects and stop-motion animation.

  • Objects in motion - Using everyday office and school supplies, kids will animate objects in new, interesting and imaginative ways.

  • Cut out animation - A variety of pre-fashioned and cut-out materials will be used to create characters and sets. In small groups, using video capture techniques, attendees will be taken through the steps of creating a short animation.

Free parking will be available from 6:00 pm onwards and accessible washrooms are on site. Bring a blanket, some snacks and enjoy the show under the stars!

PLEASE NOTE:

Seating in Ron Basford Park's amphitheatre is on a first come, first served basis, and no reservations are required to attend the outdoor screening. To secure a great spot, we recommend arriving by 8:15 pm. The film will start after the sun has set (approx. 9:00 pm). RSVP'ing does not guarantee a reserved seat in the park.

Why RSVP to this FREE, public event?

In the event of rain, we will move the screening inside Performance Works, where we'll have a seating capacity of 300 people. Priority seating at Performance Works will be given to those who RSVP on Eventbrite.

By RSVP'ing, you will also be entered to win a Family Pass to the 2020 Reel 2 Real Film Festival for Youth. We look forward to seeing you there!
