Fabulous events to kick off December in Vancouver, BC

(Page 6 of 6)

The Writers Studio with SFU presents another dynamite line-up of writers for the December TWS Reading Series at Rhizome Cafe. Be sure to come early if you want a good seat and you'll have time to order a meal and catch up with friends before the readings begin.

15. European Union Film Festival (Iva's pick)
Until Dec 6  | 6 - 8.30 PM | The Cinematheque, 1131 Howe street | $10.50 - $12.50

Here's to 5 minutes of my homeland glory: among other interesting 26 EU movies from 26 countries (yes, there are that many now in EU), there's a Slovenian move Bread and Circuses (Kruha in iger, in Slovenian) this Sunday, December 2. The plot is simple: family Novak from a small town Velenje is drawn by lot to participate in a TV family quiz. The mother and the daughter are thrilled about appearing on TV, whereas the father and the son do not like the idea that much, especially because the show will take place during the carnival. On their way to the TV show many curious incidents happen ... The movie is a comedy with a scent of nostalgia about socialistic Yugoslavia’s last breaths looking forward into brighter future days than they appear to be at the moment (anybody following the mass protests?). But your biggest gain is to meet representatives of the Slovenian community over here: not big in quantity, but quite large in quality.
