DOXA Festival

DOXA Highlights

Tuesday, February 16th, 2016 at 7:30 p.m. 
Kay Meek Centre, 1700 Mathers Avenue, West Vancouver, B.C.

DOXA and the Kay Meek Centre are very pleased to present Beth Harrington’s The Winding Stream – a boot-stomping yodeling great tribute to the Carter Family, founding members of American folk music and legendary progenitors of the grand old folk tradition. From homely roots, the Carter legacy has spanned generations, and the power of their harmonies and heart-felt songs echo through American music to this day. Musicians from John Prine to George Jones to the late great Johnny Cash weigh in on their profound influence and impact.

Screening will be preceded by a live performance by Fraser Union and guest singer Kathy Griffin, who will play a selection of Carter Family favourites.

Friday January 29th, 2016 at 7:00pm 
Richmond Cultural Centre Performance Hall, 7700 Minoru Gate, Richmond, B.C.

DOXA Documentary Film Festival’s Motion Pictures Film Series, with support from the City of Richmond, is very happy to present Sasha Snow’s film Hadwin’s Judgement, the stunning cinematic adaptation of John Vaillant’s Governor General Award-winning novel The Golden Spruce. When ex-logger Grant Hadwin mysteriously disappeared into the dark waters of Hecate Strait, his story could easily have vanished into the legends and lore of the West Coast. Vaillant’s spare and powerful prose immortalized Hadwin, fleshing out the history of the man at the centre of the story.

Screening followed by a Q&A with John Vaillant, author of the award-winning novel The Golden Spruce. 

The Documentary Media Society, a non-profit charitable society, also known as DOXA Documentary Film Festival, is seeking a new Executive Director. For the past 15 years, DOXA has produced an annual festival of documentary films featuring local, Canadian and international productions. In addition to the festival DOXA presents year-round programming in collaboration with other arts organizations. 

DOC BC and DOXA Documentary Film Festival are delighted to host a conversation with Oscar-nominated director Joshua Oppenheimer, the filmmaker behind the ground-breaking film The Act of Killing (2012) and its companion piece The Look of Silence (2014).
