We’re thrilled to be celebrating DOC Members with films at DOXA.
DOC BC Member:  Mathew lestyn Parry - Hives for Humanity: The Power of Bees

Julia Common loves her bees and she is keen to share that love. In the summer of 2012 she placed one hive at a community garden in Vancouver’s Downtown East Side. The community response was overwhelmingly positive, and one hive led to many, many more.


Former DOC BC Board Member:  Kevin Eastwood -
Emergency Room: Life and Death at VGH

Life and death on a daily basis at Vancouver General Hospital’s emergency room is the raw material of a new documentary series from Knowledge Network.

DOC Member: Helene Klodawsky - Come Worry With Us!

Artistic communities are often the place where political praxis is put to the test, and Come Worry With Us! is a poignant example of this fact. Thee Silver Mt. Zion Memorial Orchestra have been making protest folk, free jazz, and neo-classical music for over 15 years. Having intentionally opted out of the corporate music industry for the DIY alternative, their sound and political convictions are imbued with a punk rock ethos and aesthetic.

DOC Members: Maya Gallus, Justine Pimlott - Derby Crazy Love 

A rollicking, rolling, punch-in-the-tits type of a film, Derby Crazy Love has just about everything you would expect from a film about roller derby. There are tough babes, hard-fought battles, horrifying wipeouts, more than a little epic drama, and even a little bit of sweet sentiment in amongst the bone-crushing checks. 
And in memory of DOC Member Peter Wintonick
whose film Cinema Vérité: Defining the Moment will also be shown at DOXA.

2:30 PM Investivative Documentary
4:00 PM Online and Off, Digital Culture and Documentary

This is a chance for all DOXA filmmakers to come together for a chance to meet and be inspired by the collective creativity and determination that brought everyone to DOXA.  Don’t miss out! Get down to DOC BC Day @DOXA.
