October Fall Series Starts Tonight!

1200X400 BIKER 2

Our October Fall Series kicks off tonight with many highly anticipated films and incredible guest speakers ready to share their stories on the VIMFF stage. 3 shows are already sold out but tickets are available for The Condor & The Eagle, North of Nightfall and Doug Scott: Life & Hard Times. Learn more about the shows below and get your tickets before they are gone.

The Condor & The Eagle

Mon, Oct 15, 7:30 pm, Rio Theatre

Join us for a special sneak preview of The Condor & The Eagle – an epic journey for climate justice, followed by a Q & A with the filmmakers – Clement & Sophie Guerra. Filmed in the verdant jungles of the Amazon (Ecuador and Peru), the brightly colored cultures of the Pan American First Nations communities (Vancouver, Alberta) and the United States Indian tribes (Oklahoma), viewers glimpse extraordinary beauty in the places, faces and regalia of traditional people. The film documents the stories of four well-known Native environmental spokespeople including Melina Laboucan-Massimo and Bryan Parras’s, whose lands were devastated by the oil industry.

North of Nightfall

Wed, Oct 17, 7:30 pm, Rio Theatre

Join Darren Berrecloth for a live presentation as he shares his love for adventure and mountain biking. A hard-working athlete who puts lots of effort into building unique bike features, Berrecloth’s dedication to the sport is unmatched in the industry. Known for taking lines that other riders don’t even consider, his success, sheer guts and determination have seen him become something of a legendary figure – even more so since breaking his back in 2011 and returning to competitive riding for 2012. Following his presentation, we will be screening North of Nightfall, which will take you to the glaciers in the Arctic Circle, where the mountain bike lines too incredible to ignore.

Doug Scott: Life & Hard Times

Fri, Oct 19, 7:30 pm, Centennial

Don’t miss this opportunity to hear some of the greatest tales in mountaineering history, from the legend Doug Scott himself. Scott is regarded as one of the world’s leading high altitude and big wall climbers. He is best known for surviving an unplanned bivouac with Dougal Haston 100 metres below the summit of Everest, without oxygen or sleeping bags, and for surviving a fall close to the summit of the Ogre, in Pakistan, where he broke both of his legs. Needless to say, the evening will packed with jaw-dropping stories. Doug will also be signing copies of his new books – ‘Up and About – The Hard Road to Everest’ (2015) and ‘The Ogre’ (2017).
