Bert Bush was a fixture in Vancouver’s film & video scene for over 45 years. He supervised printing for Trans Canada Films before opening his own post-production firm, Bush Edit House, at the foot of Lonsdale in 1971. Bert cut film & video, rented equipment and mentored young filmmakers until his death in 2006. When archivists were invited to investigate his legacy, they found nearly 100 films of all kinds — mixing BC tourism titles (A Date with BC, A Place To Be) with cautionary tales of alcohol abuse (Voices) & heart disease (Heartbeat), a ’how-to’ film about placing a long-distance call without operator assistance (DDD- Direct Distance Dialing) and rare examples of locally-produced 50’s & 60’s TV ads. Curated by Colin Preston and Christine Hagemoen.
