The Film and Media Showcase is a forum for members and guests of Cineworks, WIFTV and DOC BC. It provides filmmakers with an opportunity to share their work, across genres and in a variety of lengths, in a space dedicated to discovery, discussion and inspiration. Each event is framed by a question and answer session with creators, followed by informal conversation and networking.
(1) Roisin Clarke, EveryBody Matters, 2019, 77 mins
Nobody wants to be 500lbs or dreams of being so heavy that they feel imprisoned in their own body. So what happens when you wake up into a world you do not fit into? Hating \"fatties\" is the most acceptable form of bigotry today. Now a quarter of our population, they deserve the same consideration and respect that other people in our community receive under similar circumstances. EveryBody Matters dispels the myths and challenges the body bias in our society, because EveryBody Matters.
(2) David Prokopchuk, Used Rubber, 2018, 5:22 mins
A silent film about Cornelius, an under-ambitious used tire salesman, who falls head over heels for a charming damsel only to find her villainous Step Father has other plans in the works.
David Prokopchuk was born in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. He grew up with a passion for skateboarding and renting VHS tapes. Working as a photographer he naturally transitioned into film making once these cameras started to offer greater video capabilities. He enjoys producing, writing, cinematography and directing. His recent film noire comedy short "Pocket Full of Nuts" has won 5 film awards.
(3) Marvin Marwah (Director) & Brenda Cervanes (Writer), Meet Vancouver, 2019, 8:49 mins
Vancouver is an actress who has always played someone else. She finally gets an audition to play a "west coast" girl. She decides to interview her family, Montreal, Toronto, and Victoria to get an insight into her own identity.
