Film Festivus for the rest of us

CineVic Filmmakers offer up winter themed shorts in non-competitive screening party

CineVic's Film Festivus features winter themed shorts by local filmmakers.

 

What happens when local filmmakers are randomly paired with someone else’s idea for the perfect winter themed short film? How about a ’50s style educational film about a world-turned-upside-down holiday that involves people getting married to donkeys?

Find out if the donkey is the bride or the groom and a whole lot more at CineVic’s Film Festivus, Thurs, Dec. 22 at the Victoria Event Centre.

In November, 13 local filmmakers put three winter-themed story ideas into a hat, and each drew one at random. The result is at least 10 short films, ranging from the traditional and touching to puppet slashers and kung fu fighting.

Filmmakers include Michael Korican – The Nightmare Before Christmas, Dirk Slot – The Ant and the Grasshopper, Krista Loughton and Ana de Lara – Feast of Fools, The Zone 91.3– Merry Christmas I Don’t Want to Fight Tonight,  Bryan Skinner and Jim Knox — A Christmas Carol, Denver Jackson — Costanza’s Festivus Origins, Natalie North — Die Hard, Art Messenger — The Twelve Days of Christmas, Melissa de Haan -— Rudolph, Matthieu Halle — ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas, Dan Hogg — Home Alone, Victoria and Jen Westcott — The Trailer Park Holiday, Kevin Guillet and Jesse Cattle  — Silent Night.

DJs B Skinnah and D Hogg will be on the decks after the screenings to help you dance the night away. $10 non-members. cinevic.ca. M
