A shout out to First Weekend Club In Vancouver
Our Vancouver DVD Launch party was a success at the beautiful Republic Club on Granville St. The 2 storey, chandelier-clad space with multiple LCD screens flanking the bars is home to mostly 20 year old clubbers ready to dance on any given night. The owner of the Republic was kind enough to allow us to host a little bit of different crowd last Thursday, most of whom were members of Vancouver’s First Weekend Club. These folks were friendly, extremely engaged with cinema, and wonderful audiences for our Canadian films.
From their site:
First Weekend Club is a non-profit organization that strives to build audiences for great Canadian films through grassroots initiatives such as special screenings, Q&As with talent, premiere parties, movie alerts and much more! First Weekend Club is a free cross Canada film club that encourages members to attend opening weekend screenings. Hence the name, First Weekend Club.
We spoke with one of the FWC’s officers and were thrilled that they may be interested in having us perform Late Fragment live for one of their Canada Screens events.
Stay tuned here for more news and for pictures of the Vancouver event to be posted shortly.
