"The films this year are the closest I could ever get to experiencing Vancouver in the 1930s to the 1960s without using a time machine," says historian Michael Kluckner, who has curated and will narrate an afternoon of vintage movies from the City of Vancouver Archives.

Pianist Wayne Stewart will provide accompaniment for the movies that were originally produced without sound

Render’s focus is on innovative and cutting-edge music videos that push the creative boundaries of the art form. The music video is often seen as a supplement to the music in the video: Render turns this understanding upside-down, championing the videos, the work that goes into them and the people who make them. There are videos from bands including The Knife (director Bitte Andersson), They Might be Giants (director Alex Italics), Asbjorn (director Powerclap), Marcel Dettmann & Emika (director Parker Ellerman), and The Ramona Flowers (director Bouha Kazmi). We also have a few Vancouver favourites: Wintermitts (director Artino Ahmadi) and PrOphesy Sun (director Eliot Zee).

Late Night Snacks

It’s 10:30 p.m. and WHAM! It hits you: An insidious, appalling and almost irresistible craving for a late night snack. Late-night snacks tend to be hidden snacks, stolen morsels — the kind of stealth feasts that leave one steeped in shameful self-loathing and neurotic denial. "I’m just having a little bedtime snack," we say to ourselves. Be warned; this edgy collection of animated shorts is for those late-nighters looking to satisfy a hungry craving.
