DOXA Documentary Film Festival May 2-11, 2014

DOXA has announced their 2014 festival lineup and it’s looking good!

DOC BC Member Mathew Parry will have his short film Hives for Humanity: The Power of Bees screened on Tuesday May 6th at 6:00pm.

Julia Common loves bees and is eager to share her passion with the rest of Vancouver. In the summer of 2012, she placed one hive in a community garden in Vancouver’s Downtown East Side, in the hope that it would bring people together through the work and effort required to grow and maintain a thriving hive. Here’s a Vancouver Sun article about the project.

It will be preceding another Canadian film, The Sower.

In fact, there’s a number of Canadian films featured at the event, but one of the most interesting ones has to be the much talked about A Brony Tale from Vancouver Filmmaker Brent Hodge.

For those of you currently living under a rock, bronies are the male fans of the animated television series My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. The brony phenomena, born out of the Internet, has come to vivid life in colour, costumes, and social get-togethers.

There’s also a number of special programs:
