New West Doc Fest 2013

New West Doc Fest 2013

New Westminster Environmental Partners and Green Ideas Network are pleased to present the 3rd Annual New West Doc Fest 2013 on three evenings: October 23, 24, and 25, 2013.

Expect to see new cutting-edge, award-winning films that will interest an all-ages audience.  The movies chosen showcase Canadian and music culture, animation, social justice, the environment, animal rights, and food.  They have been chosen with topics to inspire, promote public awareness, educate, and ultimately encourage dialogue leading to positive change in our society.

This year’s movies are:

  • The Legend of Sarila
  • Blackfish
  • 20 Feet from Stardom
  • Bidder 70

What’s new this year?

A new venue! Landmark Cinemas, located one level up from the New Westminster SkyTrain station platform.  The festival is therefore very accessible and convenient to get to.

The festival has expanded to three evenings (from two in previous years). In addition to 5 feature-length films there will also be film shorts, guest speakers, live theatre and music, plus a closing night reception. On both Wednesday and Friday evenings members of NOW! Theatre will present live music and theatre complementing the festival’s themes. In addition to this, next door to the theatre is The Spud Shack Fry Co. restaurant, which will be open on Friday night after the final screening as a place for festival patrons to mingle and to munch on complimentary finger foods.
