October’s going to be a great month. We start off with an excellent event: The Grub-Stake Revisited, a silent film with a live score, and live voice actors. The Grub-Stake, a film about the Klondike gold rush, was made in 1923 by Nell Shipman, a ground-breaking Canadian woman director. The Yukon Film Society present this version, with a live score by Whitehorse musicians, the Longest Night Ensemble. It’s going to be awesome.
We’ll also be hosting a lot of excellent local cinema: The Avenue, a doc about 118th Ave; Halloweeniors, a film about local seniors celebrating Halloween; Truckstop Bloodsuckers, about... well, you’ll figure it out. We’ve also got the return of Mostly Water & Metro Shorts; a screening with the Edmonton Film School; and a new music video for Shout Out Out Out Out.
Finally, we have no shortage of films in the Halloween spirit: DEDfest returns, from Oct 17 to 21; and we’ve got special screenings of Ghostbusters, Bubba Ho-tep, 28 Days Later, Carrie, Blacula - and of course, The Rocky Horror Picture Show!
And next month, be on the lookout for a larger, improved and re-imagined printed program.
