Through the Lens

The Squamish Arts Council is pleased to present “Through the Lens”, our first Film Series happening in Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), BC.

This series is intended to offer windows to different perspectives through film. The youth voice is powerful, and in response to their answers in the Youth Engagement Survey 2018, we are working to find innovative ways to bring film to our community.

This event is graciously funded by the BC Arts Council and is free to all youth under 25, and by donation for everyone else!

We will be hosting three film screenings in August, so check them out below and book your ticket now!

The Next 150— Documentary Futurism

August 30th, 7:00pm

The last film night of the Through the Lens film series will be on August 30th, hosted at The Common. We will be presenting “The Next 150 – Documentary Futurism.” Seeding a new genre in cinematography, filmmakers tobias c. van Veen and Brishkay Ahmed will be sharing their experience with futurism. How do you document something that has not yet happened? Most of these movies are from young voices envisioning the future of Canada in the next 150 years.
