The quirky naturalistic coming of age comedy stars Dan Abramovici as Ben as he copes with life, love, and bouncing back from a bad breakup. Heartbroken and cynical after he’s dumped by his girlfriend, Ben makes the unusual decision never to leave his house again. Relevant and witty, the film speaks to the heart of our scattered, digital age, and is a topical and comedic look at today’s wired generation.

Since the late 1960s, at least 18 young women — many of them from disadvantaged First Nations communities — have disappeared or been found murdered along the 724-kilometre stretch of Highway 16 in northern British Columbia. Matt Smiley's hard-hitting documentary shares the story of the victims and investigates how the legacy of generational poverty, high unemployment and endemic violence in their communities contributed to their tragic fates — and how contemporary First Nations leaders are striving to cure those ills.

In Carl Bessai’s spoof 1974 Canuxploitation pic, "Frank Lo Zito" stars as Detective Franky New Guinea. "Mans Asbornder" is his intense new partner, Detective Reverend Grizzly Night-Bear, and "Lester Holloway" is Vancouver’s, uh, Bad City’s corrupt new mayor, Dominic Kincaid. In other words, Bessai is throwing self-parody on top of parody; a Royale with cheese if you will. Served best with cold beer!

In 1971, a group of friends sail from Vancouver into a nuclear test zone, and their protest captures the world’s imagination. The Greenpeace story is vividly and dramatically told in Jerry Rothwell’s riveting documentary, a movie that reminds us of the central role Vancouver played in the foundation of the modern environmental movement, as well as the often difficult path that movement has followed over the years. Featuring candid interviews with Paul Watson, Patrick Moore and Rex Wyler, never-before-seen archival footage, and the music of Pink Floyd, Leonard Cohen, Jodi Mitchell, Brigitte Bardot, Country Joe Mcdonald & The Fish and Can.
