On Thursday, May 19, the C Blue Film Festival unspools at the Vancity Theatre, screening the short-listed entries to the The C Blue Film Competition. Entrants were asked to create a short film on the subject of water; “lo-fi” productions were encouraged. The winning film will receive $1,000, donated by realtor and philanthropist Alexis Palkowski.

The short films and their filmmakers are:
A Time of Water Bountiful” by Michael Ricciardi
Water Conservation PSA” by Tosh Turner and Tim Addison
Frost” by Laura Margaret Ramsey and Riley Stewart
The Slough” by Susan Gordon
Okeover Oysters” by Alex Turner and Darwyn Moffatt-Mollett
OceanGybe” by Andrew Naysmith

The screening will be hosted by Breakfast Television’s Dawn Chubai and C Blue board member Mike Watson. The evening will be followed by a deluxe cocktail and canapé reception featuring tasty seafood bites by Chefs Robert Clark and Lee Humphries.

The competition and festival evening is a grassroots initiative by the C Blue Foundation, C’s new organization dedicated to all water: Lakes, rivers, streams, oceans and glaciers. The blue movement begins.

“This film night is a maiden voyage of sorts for our new foundation,” says C proprietor Harry Kambolis, “We wanted to do something with cool factor, so a film competition and screening sounded fun.”
