Cinema Spectacular in Vancouver

Vancouver, BC – Billed as An All Canadian Motion Picture Variety Show, Cinema Spectacular has been carving out a reputation as a compelling and unique event with a stellar line up of shorts, live music, and mingling galore in the Vancity Theatre atrium.

Meeting with founder Laurel Brown in her airy Mt. Pleasant kitchen, her zest for filmmaking is palpable as we sip coffee in kitschy cups. After graduating the film program at SFU and struggling to get her own films made and into festivals, she started looking for other options. In 2014, she decided it was time to showcase indie shorts from outside the mainstream festival circuit, invited fellow filmmakers to submit their work and booked the VIFF theatre on Seymour in the heart of the city.
