David Suzuki LIVE at The Vic

David Suzuki LIVE at The Vic

  • May 30, 2015 until May 30, 2015
  • Showtime: 4:15pm

    Canadian environmentalist David Suzuki will be at the Vic Theatre on Saturday, May 30th for a discussion and Q&A following a short screening, as part of his tour for his new book, 'Letters to My Grandchildren'.

    The Vic is proud to host this accomplished Canadian for a rare opportunity to look at his past work, combined with his latest book. The screening of Windy Bay, that was produced by The Nature of Things in the early 1980s, is a topic that he still feels is important and relevant today.

    “The Windy Bay story was broadcast in the middle of the battle over logging in Haida Gwaii. The film excited the greatest response to any story on the Nature of Things and played an important role in galvanizing Canada’s support for the Haida. The issues and perspectives in this great ecological success story serve as a model to be followed all over the world,” said Dr. David Suzuki.

    This is an ALL-AGES event. Tickets are $15. No Membership required.

    Best of the Fest!

    If his first feature film, The Myth of the American Sleepover, perfectly captured life as a teenager on the edge of adulthood, director David Robert Mitchell's first foray into horror, It Follows, presents a captured teenager at the edge of her sanity. Adding an allegorical depth to the classic 80s slasher flick, It Follows is a film about a young woman who is doomed to be pursued by a dangerous nude phantom figure... until she sleeps with someone else and passes on the curse. Combined with an atmospheric score by Disasterpeace and superb, dream-like visuals, It Follows is both a visceral horror film and an eerie portrait of teenage confusion at the end of innocence. It also won the Best Film at the 2014 Austin Fantastic Fest.

    Best Feature Film at the Victoria Film Festival 2015

    Six saucy stories with one deliciously dark undercurrent: revenge! Trapped too long in cars and planes, or stuck between parking tickets and wedding guests, Wild Tales deliberately plays with extremism using humour and explosive emotions.

    “A splendidly anarchic portrait of a world on the verge of a nervous breakdown.” Mark Kermode, The Observer (UK)

    “After all, we humans are salt of the Earth.” This visually stunning documentary directed by Wim Wenders about Brazilian photographer Sebastião Salgado, shows humankind over four decades and his change of focus to untouched habitats of nature.

    "The Salt of the Earth" presents not just a passing of time through one man's remarkable life but a change of perspective.” – Jeff Baker, Oregonian

  • Showtime: 7pm

    Victoria Premiere!

    The word Bansky means the world to some and nothing to others. The cultural statement that Banksy made and his street art when they invaded New York City for one month, when a new piece was created, every day in October 2013. This documentary makes you question street art and the real power behind it.


    “Very enjoyable documentary following the fun-filled month the secretive street art collective known as Banksy spent spreading its works across New York city...a fun ride.” – Jim Schembri, 3AW

    Danny Collins

  • Showtime: 4pm

    Inspired by a true story, the uplifting Danny Collins boasts bright dialogue and Pacino’s most exuberant performance as an aging sell-out ‘70s rocker who changes his tune – and his life - when he uncovers a letter from John Lennon encouraging him to stay true to his music.  

    “It's never dull to watch pros like Pacino, Bening, Plummer, Garner and Cannavale interact - this is dream casting - and the film makes the most of that, along with a pleasingly comprehensive Lennon soundtrack.” – Linda Barnard, Toronto Star

    Iris Apfel is to New York fashion what Anna Wintour is to Vogue. Even if you don’t know her by name, you know her trademark oversized glasses. 93-year-old Iris Apfel is the NYC style maven that has been impacting fashion for over seven decades. Unapologetically unique, Iris is a living example that fashion – and life – is what you make of it.

    “Iris Apfel champions the idea that fashion doesn't have to define you even if you live it, and she's a walking reminder of how much fun it can be just to have a little style.” - Genevieve Valentine, Philadelphia Weekly

    When Marnie Was There

    When Marnie Was There

  • Jun 12, 2015 until May 18, 2015
  • Showtime: 7pm

    Yet another splendid escape from Studio Ghibli, this picturesque and poignant animation perfectly captures the loneliness of a young girl in a sleepy seaside town – and the magic and excitement of making new friends… who aren’t quite what they seem.

    Based on bestselling novel by Joan G. Robinson, When Marnie Was There is the second film from Hiromasa Yonebayashi, animator on classics Spirited Away, Howl’s Moving Castle, and Princess Mononoke. Widely speculated to be the last film from beloved Studio Ghibli, When Marnie Was There combines elements of all these great films into one powerful and painterly portrait of youth.

    “Wistful and stirringly humane, When Marnie Was There is… emblematic of [Studio Ghibli’s] collective greatness. In a way, that's the most perfect thing it could be.” – David Ehrlich, Time Out.
