Recent Audience Responses

Local filmmakers are bringing the documentary AMPLIFY HER to Vancouver with two back-to-back screenings at the Rio Theatre on November 28th - featuring work from 3 Emily Carr alumini; Kristen Turcotte (animation), Krista Gibbard and Molly AppleJohn (illustration).

Expect to meet many amazing members of various studios from around town at the screening!

AMPLIFY HER is a documentary film, graphic novel and animated motion comic series exploring the rise of female artists in the electronic music scene. Imagined and brought to life by more than 21 female creators across North America – many of them based in Vancouver – the 89-minute feature follows seven up-and-coming stars as they find their unique voices within a male-dominated realm. On the surface, it’s a story about women in the electronic music industry, but the film’s deeper message is the resurgence of “the feminine” in Western culture.

Screening Tuesday, November 28 Location: Rio Theatre, 1660 E Broadway, Vancouver, BC, V5N 1W1
