Event description

Description

Through the cinematic eyes of the filmmaker, REEL Crafted Film Festival aims to better understand “What is Craft”?
They manipulate metals, carve wood, form clay, and weave thread to create art that we use and surround ourselves with every day.
But how do these (artists, craftspeople, makers) do it? What inspires them? When does the idea start to take form into something tangible?
Join us for 2 evenings of short films as the Reel Crafted Film Festival seeks to discover not only how craft is made, but why.

Friday, May 24 - International Shorts | International Craft

From popular trends to the weird and conceptual. From culturally significant to “just for the hell of it” - this lively group of international short films featuring craft from around the world will not only educate as to the how and why these artists create, but also inspire us to look abroad to discover the limitlessness of the human imagination.

To be followed by a discussion and Q + A with filmmaker in attendance.

Featuring filmmakers:

Ben Cox
Ted Fisher
Grace Han
Colleen Harvey
Wladyslaw Labuda
Justin Rose

Saturday, May 25 - Local Lens

This collection of short films from British Columbian filmmakers explores the multitude of disciplines that are practised by artists from around the province.

From Vancouver to the rain forests and the Gulf Islands, we discover how landscape, culture, and community inspire artists to create lasting work that reflect their skill, artistry and their home.

Premier: Between the Hero and Villain (Short film)

After a near-fatal heart attack, Aaron Harrison contemplates his life, work, and legacy as a skilled props and costume builder for some of Vancouver’s largest film and TV productions. From stoic heroes to the darkest of villains, “Between the Hero and Villain” uncovers the chaotic magic of creation when talent, life, and Hollywood deadlines collide.

To be followed by a discussion and Q + A with artists and filmmakers in attendance.

Featuring filmmakers:

Richard Olak
April Vannini
Phillip Vannini

Doors open at 6:30pm both nights.
