Shivers Film Society Comes Home with Canadadrome

Last year, when we talked to Shivers Film Society co-director Vince D’Amato, he noted his plans to bring Shivers’ U.K.-based Canadian cult film screening series back to his Vancouver hometown. Well, he’s made good on his word and Shivers’ new series, Canadadrome, a monthly spotlight on Canadian genre shorts and features, is set to debut at the Pacific Cinematheque on January 27, 2012. This all-day event will feature beer and wine for sale and  local filmmakers in attendance for Q&As, providing some much-needed Canuxploitation love on the west coast.


So far two Canadadrome programs have been announced:

January 27, 2013 @ 1pm:

  • The Familiar (short, D: Kody Zimmermann)
  • Hike (short, D: Jennifer Campbell)
  • Bong of the Dead (D:  Thomas Newman)
  • Cube (D: Vincenzo Natali)

February 24, 2013 @ 1pm:
