DOXA Documentary Film Festival

 DOXA is heading out of Vancouver for the first ever DOXA Festival:
Sunshine Coast September 30th to October 3rd, 2011
Raven's Cry Theatre in Sechelt.

Featuring 14 of the most fascinating films selected from DOXA's previous festivals, including the thrilling slam poetry film Louder Than a Bomb, Sundance prize-winner If a Trees Falls: A Story of the Earth Liberation Front, as well as selections from the National Parks Project with a special musical performance from Veda Hille.

DOXA is proud to have the Gibsons Green Team as a Community Partner for this special presentation of the National Parks Project on Sunday October 2nd, 2 pm. In honour of Parks Canada's centennial, this unprecedented celebration of natural beauty spans the country, from Nahanni National Park in NWT, to Gwaii Haanas off BC's coast. In each park, 1 filmmaker and 3 musicians set out to capture the unique beauty of a region. DOXA presents selections from the original film project - each short film as mesmerizing as the landscape it captures.

To follow the film Veda Hille plays piano and tenor guitar, dabbles in banjo and accordion, and has a new love affair going on with a nord electro keyboard and a handful of casios. She writes about the natural world, the trickiness of love, the constant threat of tragedy, and anything else that amazes her.
